Anyone know how to take off the interior trim?

Thinking about purchasing the brushed aluminum trim to swap out with my burl. All the pieces look as if they would snap out with only clips holding onto it. Ive done the swap in my old 330ci and im positive the door panels have a different procedure to it. Anyone know?

Yes. Iīve taken them all out. Basically you just need to pull. But theyīre so tight you canīt simply pull them out. So you need some kind of crowbar to pry them out. But that will hurt the trim and the surround. BMW has a special tool thatīs basically a plastic crowbar. Wide and soft jet stable. I used a plastic cake cutter....
No, not THAT kind of tierfreund!
