    Hi All, I have a 2001 bmw 316ti e46.
    The trim surrounding the gearstick leather has become scratched over the years, It really annoys me and It ruins the whole look of a gorgeous e46 interior.
    My car has sand beige leather a beige dashboard. I think it has the graphite black trim, not wood trim.

    Ive found this wood trim surround on ebay for £25. Its a great deal as these things are hard to find, and especially at this price.

    Im thinking the wood trim would look great as the interior is already beige. Beige and wood trim is a great combination. Here is the like to ebay:

    But would it though? I'm considering it as a quick replacement because the one in my car right now is seriously scratched

    I'm not too sure thought, because you're right it might look 'poo'

    Make your mind up already!!!

    In my opinion, you should replace badly scratched things.

    If you're going for wood trim, try to find a full package replacing all of the trims. Or, try to get a direct replacement of the same one.
