    Hi All, first time poster.
    Recently bought the above with titanium trim around centre console, dash and door trim. Problem is I don't like this finish and wanted Dark Grey poplar interior wood. To replace from bmw would cost over a grand !
    Wondered whether anybody out there has any advice as to a cheaper source or any other way around.
    Cheers
    Steve

    Hi Steve,

    Not sure about a cheap option for the wood but you can have them wrapped... I had carbon fibre in mine, but it got scratched, so had it re-wrapped in carbon fibre. Everyone that has seen it thinks it looks better than the factory finish

    Welcome to the forum mate

    Take a look at Chris's interior retrim thread

    He had great results, and it worked out much cheaper than buying the trim pieces. I'm sure you will be able to get some with the effect you want.

    Hi Luke,
