Interior Damage

I am just starting to clean up the car, and the interior trim pieces are pretty messed up. Can these parts be cleaned without being destroyed (I was thinking of using something like a "magic Eraser". It appears that the finish is similar to the wheels: three stage. I think these are too far gone. Can they be re-finished? Replaced? Is there a kit....open for suggestions.

Thanks for any help.
Joe

I do not think there is any salvaging that. Go carbon fiber wrap

I'm not in my car as I type, but the stock ebrake lever is a black leather or synthetic. It appears that your lever is an aftermarket and not stock. It's typically supposed to match the shift knob and wheel.

That is stock. Titan line trim came with the e-brake handle as well as the shift knob in titanium. However bmw no longer carries the part so when they replace, they replace with leather pieces.
