X5M Trade Piano Black trim for Carbon Trim

I am in Nassau County, NY would anyone local with a X5M want to trade interior trims? I am picking my car up this week (new) and it has piano black trim and I would like to trade for the carbon trim. Let me know
Thanks

I accidentally posted this is the e70 forum and practically got a flamethrower up my butt

Isn't that kind of an involved swap out? Removing from the door panels especially. looks as if it might be glued therefore difficult to swap out.

It is an easy removal besides from the center console pieces, dash and door trim is all held in with clips. I believe the center console pieces are screwed in from the bottom but am not sure.

I will get the diagram for them when I am at the dealer picking up the car.

I'd be interested in switching mine out to the carbon leather as well but I can only imagine that it would/could be quite pricey.

I really like the piano black especially with the black paint but it does show finger prints smudges and hairline scratches. I am constantly cleaning it, which isnt a bad thing just I do like the looks of the carbon leather and even the aluminum now.

I have never personally had the piano black but I've had the carbon and really liked it. I haven't even seen the interior of my x5m yet only pictures of ones that are the same.

Thanks Lemansx5.
Can you link me to where you pulled the pictures from?
From that picture it looks like you can unclip the panel below the trim, then unclip the front of the trim and maybe access the screw that holds it in without taking the center console off.

I saw you on south oyster bay rd around a week ago, your car looks really good.
The dealer who had this car actually sold it before my dealer could secure it, so I ordered a 2012 today with carbon trim.
