Where can i find/buy

The interior "wood" trim on my passenger dash side and the rear/right door panel are coming off. IT looks like the inserts that they are supposed to lock into are worn and gone. Where can i buy the inserts? I dont want to go to eht Stealership. Autozone should have them no? Any help is greatly appreciated.

The trim clips that go into the door? Or the pegs that attach to the trim? Both are relatively inexpensive from the dealer. I think it's around 30 cents per clip. Red clips for the dash trim pieces and white clips are for the door trim.

Thats right. Everything in a BMW is real. They dont make fake wood.

Well if you don't have one close to you then I guess you could order them online. I know ecstuning has them because I saw them last night. Tischer I'm sure has them as well.
But it will be about the same price at the dealer minus the cost of shipping.

It might be real leather, or you might have leatherette. Depends what it came with.

Where should I buy the red dask clips? Seems like a waste of shipping to order online...
