    Hello everybody. Just got a quick question...does anybody know how to remove white scratches off the carbon fibre interior trim or is it impossible? If it is impossible and needs replacing where can I source genuine BMW carbon fibre trims from at a good price? Thanks!!

    Is it a deep scratch which has gone past the lacquer? If not, then you can use something like Megs Scratch X.

    I never knew carbon fibre interior trimming had laquer on it!!!??? Its sooo easily scratched!!! Sooo annoying! I shall try scratch X when I get the chance. It does not feel as if it has laquer on it, it feels rough like woven material?

    If it does scratch so easily, maybe think about applying lacquer on it as a protective measure.

    You need to take the trim off and apply
