    I have a 98 SE with the nice old man wallnut trim.. i want to change it for the ali or carbon trim... 1 part per door.. tip lever trim... one strip on dash and ashtray...

    anyone managed to do this??.. is it even possible to separate the trim from the door cards and other panels without major damage or heartache??

    this is really easy, i went from metal look trim to walnut so i must be getting old!!

    Basically just get a flat head screw driver and leaver them off, it really could not be simpler

    cool, u know u can get film to put over them in alu/carbon design, may be a cheaper/easier option if u can get them off.

    .. I don't have enough posts to trade yet but this I guess is one more....

    If there is anyone out there who fancies a change from carbon/metal/alu to wood in a 97/98 A6 C5 then let me know... maybe we could do a straight swap.. worth asking I suppose..
