fineline or grey poplar wood trim e82 coupe

Post by AndyGilbert » Wed Jun 28, 2017 10:15 pm

Anybody have this fitted to their e82 or perhaps know any for sale.

I'm not a massive fan of the silver trim and am looking to replace it either with the poplar trim, piano black finish or even a light burr wood finish.

Can see a few sets for sale in the US but a euro source would be handy.

well I bought a replacement set, will fit them in the next few weeks and will post up once done.

I went for the fine line grey poplar trim to replace the chrome/silver set in mine.

so I made the change, went from std silver trim to the poplar fine grey trim, I really like it, feels a lot more 'special inside now.

So before and after pictures

In reality its a grey trim and not a brown as shown in the pictures, but easy mod, I like it.

Was it hard to swap out the bit below the centre console?

I Speced this grey on my F22 and the sales person showed me it on a car ..... decided to go brushed ally with the gloss black trim.

it wasn't hard to swap out the centre console stuff, although I had to take it apart a few times to make sure it sat right, to be honest the biggest pain was the refixing of the handbrake leather cover with a zip tie.

I followed a few tutorials online before having a go though. But it was done within a few hours.

I'm just not a fan of the brushed ali, but was keen on the gloss black, however the fine line trim came up first.
