Don't know how much help this would be, but on the paper with the previous owner's service history he brought it in at one point and the comments were "interior door trim poor surface finish" when I asked my SA what that meant he said "The door trim was probably pealing which is very common in the E9X so it looks like it was replaced". Now I doubt the previous owner paid for it with only 3,000 miles left before he turned in the lease. So maybe it is covered. Find an email of a SA at your local BMW dealership and send him the pictures asking if that would be covered.

Those are the part numbers Tischer gave me for my 2008 335i. The prices are at least 3 months old so only use as a guide. Keep in mind your part numbers may be different based on the color/type of interior you have. These numbers are for a black 2008 335i sedan with black leather interior.
Pull strap support is the interior part of the passenger door handle. Cover is the outside of the passenger side handle. Armrest is the drivers side armrest which includes that cup that is peeling (the cup was not available seperately according to Tischer).

That would be nice but my dealer said there are no recalls that affect my car for interior trim pieces. Maybe it's different in the UK???

That's great if you under warranty. That's a service bulletin, not a recall. Recalls are good even if you are out of warranty, service bulletins are not (at least not usually). That bulletin also specifies a production date before 4/07, my car is an '08 produced on July so I would not be covered. Weird thing is, I still had the issue.

Maybe BMW could sell an approved hand cream and sun tan lotion so this does not happen in the future?

Or let owners know what brands/types not to use.

That explanation in the SB is a little questionable to me.

Armrest Info

My car is a 2006 330i with the same problem. I would think the majority of the 3 series from these years share the same interior.
Part No. 51419146369
'Armrest, front left only in conjunction with' $213.29
Part number 1 in the picture. The entire arm rest needs to be replaced. Since my interior is black considering just peeling the rest of it if not covered under warranty. Replace it later. I also attached the TSB.

Reviving a forgotten thread. I just talked to a sales guy in Baltimore where I bought my car. he said there's no recall for it so i'm SOL. I'm going to look to seeing if it's worth replacing or fixing since it's coming out of my own pocket.

If you search for the steering wheel trim fix - mainly removing, sanding and spray painting you will have the best luck going this route if you have black trim.

The 'spray paint' used is a matte bumper one stage (no clearcoat) spray and I would suggest using this method on your door trims. I had really good luck doing my steering wheel trim. For my driver door handle I just peeled the trim to expose semi glossy black plastic. My steering wheel trim came out perfect.

What color is your trim?

Sorry I was expecting you to have e.s.p.

I was able to paint my steering wheel trim with matte black bumper paint. You can do the same for the driver door handle but instead you can also just peel it all away and underneath is semi gloss black plastic that looks just as good as the rubberized trim that was coating it

Does anyone know what the part number is on it or where it's found in the diagrams? Would like to order it today. I have heard of the handles getting replaced under warranty so I feel like they should be available separately.

A big TIA

.
The bucket portion of my handle actually separated from the door, so there is a gap between the bucket of the handle and the door. Its annoying because my keys always get caught in it. I can see tabs to snap it back together, but cant seem to get it to budge.
