Feeler: Titanium silver painted interior trim

I can get a set of wood trim painted titanium silver and have it look very very close to Matte Chrome. I got this done recently on a different set of wood trim and it looks amazing, this includes the shift knob. I have an extra set of wood trim that I can get painted the exact same way. If anyone is interested in buying a set, I can go ahead and have it painted and sell to you. I'm not the person painting it, it's being done by a professional at a respected body shop. Please let me know if you interested. I will post pictures this weekend.

why wouldnt we just buy trim ourselves and get it painted at a local body shop? I guess im confused about is, what kinda of prices are we talking about? Why pay someone in texas to paint your trim or order trim to be painted when we should just go and take ours to a legit vehicle body paint shop?

Oops, I forgot to mention, it's for a coupe, i don't think it will fit a convertible, because of the rear armrests. Oh yeah, it's for a grey interior. I'm not sure on the price, any offers??? If there's a reasonable offer than I'll do the sell, I just don't want to go thru the trouble and cost of painting if I get lowball offers, it's just not worth it. I have any extra set of wood because I bought Matte Chrome and shift knob from Pacific BMW for $530.00. Now I wish I'd known about painting it, could have save me a lot of money.

Topazman, you're absolutely right. You can go get your trim painted anywhere if you wanted to, but I'm just trying to help those that don't have a good body shop in their city or can't find a good body shop to do it right themselves. A friend recommended this shop to me and so we took a chance and painted my brother's wood and surprising it came out very well.

I've already have experience with this shop and I know they will do a good job and won't fcuked it up. Painting trims is not a new thing, just finding a shop who whose got the expertise to do it right is the thing.

It's the same thing with buying body colored bumper reflectors from Bimmian or wherever, we're paying them for something we can do ourselves if we really wanted to.

Believe me, the painted trim is almost identical to matte chrome. Excellent work. I'll post pics of my brother's trim when I off work.

How are the armrests in the back of the convertible different than the coupe? The ones on the DIY trim guide look alot like mine.

kmorris, I've read somewhere that the armrest in the back is a little shorter than a coupe, that's just what's i've read.

That is correct. I believe the centre console is different as well.

Really? Bugger! The Circle BMW parts website doesn't seem to mention anything about that. I could have almost had a very expensive mistake. I guess I've got some research to do. Post some pics of the interior, I'd like to see how that looks.

The trim looks even better in person. My camera doesn't take the best pictures I know. Okay, I'll will sell the trim and the shift knob for $300 shipped. It's already costing me 200.00 to paint so I think it's a fair price. Please let me know if any of you guys want it, I will have my trim painted just like what you see and send it as soon as i get it back from my painter.

hey shervin, good luck painting your trim, I'm not sure what the body shop did, but I just told them to paint it Titanium Silver, which is the closest thing to Matte chrome, oh yeah, it might help alot if you have a sample piece of matte chrome to show the body shop, that helps a lot.
