Does anyone know if the AC Schnitzer carbon fiber trim is available for the M5? I'd like to find some better pictures than the one shown on this page:
http://www.acschnitzer.de/englisch/produkte/interieur/index.htm

I'm thinking of replacing my aluminium plastic trim with carbon fiber. I wonder if their trim would look good with my interior (silverstone all leather). Where could I order this stuff in the US? Anyone have any experience working with an AC Schnitzer reseller here in the states?

Thanks,

I ran into the same problem of not liking the original trim, but I had my trim repainted into metallic black, the original BMW interior shadowline colour. Together with the leather interior it looks great.

Bavaria Autosport looked like they carried a really nice carbon fiber kit for the 5 series. Had the navagation system piece on the center dash, 4 door pieces and all the smaller dash pieces. I think it was around $1500, not quite sure. Can't find the web page with the picture anymore.

Hmm... I checked out Bavarian Auto, at http://www.bavauto.com/ , and called them, but the only replacement trim they carry was the same brushed plastic aluminum I already have. I couldn't find any other Bavaria Auto


Thanks anyway,

I got the Bruyere wood with my car; what exactly do you mean by "plastic aluminum?"

I thought it was "aluminum aluminum."

Well, the aluminum trim is made of a layer of shiny, mirror-like aluminum, coated with a layer of plastic-like substance that gives the aluminum a "brushed" look. It's not actual brushed aluminum. The problem with it is, the upper plastic layer can get scratched or worn fairly easily.

Got the bekkers catalog in as well. carbon fiber kit looks swwweeeeet. Little pricey.

All dash & door pieces $1800
Carbon/Leather steering wheel $785
Shift Knob $134
Brake lever $180

If you are interested, maybe we can all hook up a group deal and catch a discount on the complete setup. I would shoot for 20% off, if we can order about 5 complete kits.

Yes! That sounds pretty sweet -- is the carbon fiber dark or light? It looked pretty dark from the picture; I think the light stuff looks kinda tacky. If I got it, I don't think I'd get the steering wheel replacement -- I'm not convinced it would look better than the M5 steering wheel or be a drop-in replacement for it.

Anyone else interesting in buying this stuff?
