Hey, i'm wondering if it's easy to remove and install the dash, console and door trim myself..or is it risky?

i'm not very handy with things sooo....and this is for a 2003 325ia

I've considered changing my wood trim to something else too. From all of the DIY instructions I have read..it's fairly easy to do if you're careful with the pieces.

It's very easy. Just use a rubber/soft plastic edge (like a kitchen spatchula) to get underneath the trim (or from the side) and it should pop out. There is a link with step by step instructions and diagrams. I'll try to find it and post it soon. Unless someone else already has it, post it please!

I recently changed out my Ti OEM trim to CF Ti trim, all of the pieces and it was a huge pain in the ass.

Just remember to be careful with the backing clips...they break easily!

I have the myrtle wood trim kit (including gear knob) for the e46 sedan if you're interested.

I think the stock (brushed aluminum trim look) looks way better then the wood trim..........wood trim is an old mans option *no-no*

Yea, that's why I changed mine to aluminum. No one wants to buy the wood trim from me!

The trim on the dash is easy, as well as the shifter trim... the door handles are a slightly different story. Coupes have to remove the door panels and rear panels to get the handles/arm rests off. The dash takes only 10 minutes, if you have to do the door handles, add another 2hrs.
