well, I figure since it's already costing me 200.00 to paint the trim, so really i'm just selling the wood for 100.00, actually less, since I'll pay for shipping too. so I really think it's a fair price.

it's true you can probably buy the M3 titan shadow for about the same price, but you definitely won't find anyone selling matte chrome, since it's the more popular one. Good luck finding a body shop though.

ok, maybe i'm little confused... what's exactly is titan aluminum trim that you're talking about? I know matte chrome is the "oem" name and it's not metal, actually plastic. there's so many names, but I know for sure that most fanatics have matte chrome, which cost about 450.00 at pacific or circle.

Even m3 owners swap out their titan shadow for matte chrome... so that's why I painted the trim to match matte chrome exactly.

Since when is matte chrome more popular? Since today! I really want it in my 330ci convertible (Black Interior with matte chrome trim = )
However I can't really afford the 300$ price tag let alone 450$ brand new.

I know most of you have probably seen the cheap asian carbon fiber interior kits around the internet. I have sampled them and found they dont fit.

I have a lead where i can get REAL OEM BMW TRIM professonally covered with Real carbon fiber in Germany. I have not seen it because it is pretty expensive, but i have heard it is amazing... who would be interested in something like that, i can get some for those who are interested. I think the cost is about $900

No i am not sure.
The only painter I use is our own exclusive painter, so you couldnt go to him.

You may have a hard time finding anyone to do little stuff like that.

hey kmorris, matte chrome in black leather is definitely the best combo, imo, finish it off with a cool silver or chrome shift knob, you're
