    As per title, what is the easiest way to get all the trim out. In mine, it is that wood effect one, but giving the car is a factory made sport, i wanted gloss black or silver. Rather than replace, i would just paint these, as i did the same in my pevious vectra, and results were almost body shop!.

    What colour would suit the interior spec, any ideas?

    Please can you edit your thread title to follow the forum rules - link below my post shows how to edit thread titles.

    It should be something like 2000 E39 528i Saloon - Interior Trim removal

    This should also be in the Bodywork & Styling section - I have moved it there for you this time round

    Back on topic, I think the brushed aluminium would look the best

    they just pull off start from the right hand side and work your way across, not sure about the top of the door cards though
    love life as much as your car

    The door ones on my Vectra were attached by rivots. Would have to brake these and then glue the strip back on above the door card, so im guessing same as last time then, just pull and prey they dont brake.

    the one across the dash is pinned so use a screwdriver or somthing similar to gentally prise it out start from the passenger side

    as for the doors

    i would take the door cards out they maybe bolted or screwed on
