Ask for advice: where to buy interior parts of e90

Hi, I'm new here. I recently found that some parts inside my e90 and the most critical area is the rear centre console which has a serious peel-off problem. Just wonder if I can order that part only from somewhere other than dealership in HK (I checked that it costs $1500 excl labour from them).

Thanks

Hi, I fully understand what you mean, what I did is pop it out and repaint it myself. It is not that difficult, just becareful you break the plastic snaps(I broke a few but still ok to reinstall it). If you wanna buy it, I suggest you check either Valiant (Mong Kok) or Deutschland Auto Spare Parts (To Kwa Wan).

Here are my little weekend project pics:

I used "Tamiya" which suppose to be use on Modeling, I am unable to find the exact color to match my interior, I just use similar color tone and it ends up ok to me.

You can use the link below to see if any color matches your interior, hope it will help.
