Can anyone install aluminum trim in Cincinnati??

Wondering if anyone around town feels comfortable installing aluminum trim. I really don't want to go to the dealership. Let me know! THANKS!

It really isn't too bad to pull yourself. Get some plastic pry tools from Harbor Freight.

The center vent is a little tricky, but the doors and center console literally pull right out.

I'm worried about dinging up the edges when prying it off. That's what happened when a shop in Las Vegas took off my carbon fiber trim and put on the aluminum in my previous M3. I sure as hell won't know what I'm doing.
