    It'd be appreciated.

    Re: Interior trim change (NOT aftermarket)

    Appreciated, however VERY hard to make out the clips from the top angle, I can't make out too much from it.

    From you looking at it in person does it just have straight plastic nubs that (likely) a metal tab slips onto and pops it into the car?
    I'm wondering mainly if removal (from vehicle of current trim) is mainly pry outward, as opposed to something that has a bent tab and therefore needing an angular type of forced removal.

    give me another day and ill scan the instructions for you, that may help... I just finished removing and installing the trim.. its so simple once you figure it out... you just need to buy a tool so u can pry the panels off (you'll see what it looks like on the instruction page I post for you).

    I'm going to post pics of the new trim installed in the 'Dark Olive Ash Trim' thread
    MotoDC and MotoDC like this.

    That'd be very helpful.
    I also looked at your other thread with the installed pics, looking good!

    I'd also like to see these... not a fan of the aluminum either. Did the instructions come with thew trim pieces?

    Now, an ATS DIY sub-forum certainly would be very helpful...
    You know, guys, when I came over to this forum I was quite surprised to find folks interested in modding and tuning. I've been driving BMWs for the last 11 years (retirement presents to myself after having only driven much lesser cars), and although I am not a "true" modder, the BMW forums helped me do a lot of things that I normally would not have done. It's never too late to learn.
