I think there's a thread in the DIY section on this from a guy who took his door trim and side mirrors off of his door ... a quick search should find it.

more importantly, how did you get your hands on Euro-trim for my E92? I've been searching without luck so far. Hook a brother up!

No kidding. I _really_ want to get a set of the pianoblack for my TiAg/Lemon E90 335.

Which dealership? EBay?

To remove the trim, you can use a stiff plastic spatula. I've used a triangular-shaped hard plastic spatula that we got with our cuisinart to remove the center trim panels from our X3 when I installed the Sirius receiver. It worked like a champ. Strong enough to pry the trim out, but not abrasive.

Wedge some credit cards behind the surfaces you want to pry. Pry with a screwdriver or butter knife in between the cards. That way you don't scrape everything up..
