Sedans i hate you!!!!

upon realizing my new BMW came with no other than wood grain trim i figure hell i gotta switch that up soon and it just dawned on me.....sedans can take their trim out in less than 5 minutes. How lucky are you guys...i mean i saw the d.i.y for the coupes and wow, you gotta unplug wires,remove panels, take the rear seats out , a million torque screwes..jesus christ. sorry for the rant. but sedans youll always have the 1up on us with that...but then again.. you get 4 window regulators going bad

tee hee

Why remove it??? are you going to wrap it with $100 bills? Is that how you get your ride to drive the girls crazy?

It's actually pretty damn easy to take apart and replace the trim on a coupe. Done it a couple times now. Def not as hard and time consuming as you think, as long as you know what your doing
