Carbon Dash

Hi.

I have a piano black interior trim in my 18' M3. I want to change this to carbon, which will include the dash, the driver air vent and the trim around the idrive wheel. Been quoted just shy of £700 from my local Bmw dealer for these three items.

Does anybody know if this is about right, or if there's an aftermarket version that is of the same high standard as the Bmw parts?

Better still if anyone's selling a second hand genuine Bmw set let me know! The 2nd hand items on eBay are all damaged in one way or another.

Also, is anyone has an install guide / video it would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Have you considered carbon skinning? I got mine done from this guy https://www.facebook.com/ABCarbon/. Fantastic job and using BMW carbon fibre cloth. I had Dash, Air Vent, both door handles, Gear knob, gear knob surround and the piece below the gear knob surround for 450 all in including return postage.

I highly recommend UKF30 for carbon skinning. As you'll see, he's on the forum.
I've had several items from him, which are superb.
IIRC he may have had this set you're after fairly recently.
Send him a PM & he'll probs send you his number for WhatsApp...

I wouldn't be surprised if you found someone who wants to swap their carbon trim for your black trim. I would love to see some pics of the piano black.
