    The black window trim around my 2008 E60 has started to discolour. It looks like it is tarnished. Not sure if it shows up very well in the attached image. Any ideas if I can treat this in order to bring it back to black?

    Hi, so I've recently renewed the insurance on my 2002 E39 535i Sport and the insurance broker was asking if it is a 535 i sport or m sport? According to him, m sport has different wheels, spoiler, etc. as compared to the i sport. As far as I know however, the i sports are what he's calling the M...

    Just about to start a full body restoration on my E34 540. Going through the trim parts I need on the BMW classic site I see the correct top sill trims are available, but I also noticed that what seem to be wider trims and called "silber" for the colour. I assume this transalates as silver. I...

    Wanted some opinions here fellas, I have a full set of e60 LCI interior trims on eBay that just won't sell, they are the bamboo anthracite type. Do you think if I wrap them in a high quality vinyl wrap they will be a more desirable item? If so, what wrap do you all think I should do them in?

    As I can't yet sell on here, where would you recommend selling on my interior trims? I've a listing on eBay already, but other than that, I'm open to ideas. (I'll obviously put them on here too when I've met the requirements.) Thanks.

Symptoms: - low power (especially at low RPM) - rubbish fuel economy (< 20 mpg combined average) - negative fuel trims (additive and multiplicative) on both banks This is a long-standing issue, and has slowly gotten worse over the years (i.e. fuel...

    Hi, Is it common for shadow chrome to bubble up on window trims? That or Im guessing a prev owner wasn't so fastidious as me when it came to cleaning the car?! I think they're beyond salvation so I'm looking to replace. How do they come off?! :)

    I've decided to remove my car's sport sill trims to check for rust and clean them up and lastly put a bit of dinitrol behind them. Am I mad? Is it easy to take these trims off and put them back on? Anyone done this? Thanks! Rohan
