Seems like this is quite a common issue, i had mine replaced under warranty for peeling isses last year altough I think then simply replaced the trip panels not the entire wheel istelf for me.

Just got a call from SA .. The patient is doing well .. On the recovery room ... But they really changed only the trim ...
BTW , saw the M3 with the Carbon Fiber trim there .... Why in hell M5 does not have this options ???

That's an aftermarket piece on the e46 M3. It does not come standard, nor is it a factory option.

Not sure about the new M3, but I doubt that it's a factory option.

Yup, mine barely started peeling there. Then I went to the dealer to look at another M5 which had less miles than mine, and it was peeling much worse.

Can you say factory defect?

My wife's rings are tearing up the wheel in her RRS. I think I'll keep her far from the M. ;)
