    Well i've decide i'm going to try and restore my trim myself.

    Anyone got any brief instructions and what type of paint i need?

    This is what i know so far: i'm going to have to clean the trim, sand off the paint and existing marks, prime and coat with paint?

    is that sounding right? what type of paint do i use and where can one purchase it from?

    yeah thats the paint i used and my car has a grey interior too

    the steps that you say are right but it also tells you how to prep and spray on the can, just make sure you do it in a well ventilated area and make sure its warm too

    20 pound set on ebay is steaming away at 60 plus postage at 20 quid right this second.

    2 other options though. http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/BMW-E46-3-SERI...3%3A1|294%3A50

    Saying nothing about this one though. Pick the right one it will probably look ok. pick the wrong one though.....................

    I'm 100% going to refurbish the trim myself now, just need to decide on a colour. Currently leading towards gloss black, but anyone have any other suggestions?

    Also Craig you got any pics of your trim in gloss black?

    Kev, I'll be doing the same soon as I make a bezel for my screen - keep us updated on how you get on.

    Craig - How many tins of paint/primer etc did you need to do the whole trim?

    I was thinking about gloss black aswell but also like the look of the silver but it's one of those situations where it would be best to see it in the car to be able to make a decision (might have to have a play with paintshop)

    This isn't my car, it's how my car see's itself in it's own head
