If the cost turns you off consider buying a stock wood trim (can be found for ~$120 on ebay) from any E39, take it to a local paint shop and have them spray it with a color of your choice. What color is your interior? The piano black compliments the caramel/black interior beautifully, but with an all-black interior something like a titanium gray would look good imo.

My interior trim is color matched to to my anthracite exterior. I love the way it looks and I get compliments all the time. I highly recommend it.

When I got the car the brushed aluminium trim on the drivers door was slightly worn where the driver had been resting his arm against it.

So with some chromosol metal polish, cardboard, polishing cloths and some elbow grease have started to polish up the interior trim to a chrome look.

Sorry, not a fan of the chrome. I hope you do not get blinded by the reflection of the sun from those trim panels at the most inopportune time and crash.

Some of the new 3M Dinoc wraps look very good imho, and I would be interested in either DIY or paying someone a reasonable amount to complete for me. For the $400 i've seen quoted for the job locally however, I'd rather buy new trim.
