Wood to Carbon Fiber Wrapped Trim Swap (PICS!)

I picked up a set of matte finish carbon fiber fabric wrapped trim from WOT_Bimmer and swapped it with my stock burl wood trim. I could not be happier and the install took no more than 20 minutes total

That said, I now have mint condition Burl Wood trim for non-iDrive that I'm willing to part with. No broken tabs or scratches. Open to offers.

Before (Burl Wood)


After (Matte Carbon Fiber Fabric Wrap)


**EDIT 5/29 - ADDED MORE PICS**

Good job, the interior looks way more modern with the carbon fiber trim.

I'm guessing he used a product to clean everything that left it looking that way. Hence why that guy asked about the airbag.
