Burl Walnut Trim is so hard to find undamaged!

So my entire wood trim minus the glove box is all cracked (hairline cracks).

Looks like it's just the coating itself that is cracked but the worst of all is the driver side its lifting, cracked, chipped and what not.

I've been searching for 2-3 months now on ebay, facebook, craigslist and all I can find is the Bamboo and not the burl walnut.

And if I do find the walnut it's either worse than mine or the same conditions.

I'm about to just order a new one from ECS or something unless someone can point to a better direction/option?

I don't want to wrap it in CF as I prefer the wood finish look (must be getting old lol, I used to drool over anything CF)

I like the wood trim too, but I am not sure why your wood trim is cracking - is your X out in the sun a lot or something? I don't want to jinx myself, but I have never had a BMW trim piece crack...yet.

I have the same issue too. The trim on my doors has cracks along the length of the trim piece. I do not know if I should go and try to replace the two pieces that have cracks in them, or replace the whole interior with carbon fiber trying or something else.

My car spends a lot of time in the sun during the day. It wouldn’t surprise me if that played a role in cracking.
