Also replacing the buttons since the color is gone on volume button and light comes through the corners.
Dang!!!! Do you leave your car parked in the sun? What products do you use to clean/protect the interior? Something like 303 AeroSpace Protectant blocks UV rays - might be what you need.

Yup spends a lot of time in the sun, as we don't have shaded parking at work. I have tints which are suppose to block UV rays. The cleaner would go on the trim? I always clean my car at one car wash which is very good (always has nice cars there), other parts of the car seem fine. Also would like to not that my car has done 114k KM so that might have contributed. I think I will just buy some front windshield shades similar to this one to put on while the car is parked at work.

303 is safe on all interior surfaces including leather, vinyl, rubber, plastic, weather stripping, etc. I would use this in addition to the windshield reflector.

http://www.303products.com/303r-aero...tant-32oz.html

303 is THE LEADER in UV Screening Technology. 303 Aerospace Protectant really is like "SPF 40 Sunscreen ... For Your Stuff." Regular use gives 100% Prevention of UV caused slow-fade with regular use. No other "protectant" beautifies as intensely, protects as powerfully or lasts as long.

The World's Most Manufacturer-Recommended Product:
Because of its enduring cosmetic properties, the resistance of 303-treated surfaces to dust, soiling, and staining, its water repellency and unparalleled protective characteristics, manufacturers worldwide recommend 303 Aerospace Protectant.

303 Aerospace Protectant keeps UV-sensitive materials "like new" year after year.

Use on Rubber: Tires, neoprene, latex, door and trunk seals, weather-stripping, EPDM rubber roofs, CV boots, waders, wet suits. Vinyl: Convertible tops (and the clear vinyl windows), isinglass, marine seating, tonneau covers, car bras, covers, spa covers, pool covers. Inflatable boats: Hypalon, PVC and urethane blends. Gelcoat fiberglass: Boats, RV's, snowmobiles, jet ski's.Plastics, acrylics, polycarbonates: LexanŽ and acrylic panels, windows, , windshields, covers. Carbon-fiber/resin composites: Fishing rods, "nude" bike frames. Finished leather: Upholstery, motorcycle leather, trim, tack, fine apparel. Pool & Patio: Plastic furniture (not fabric), pool inflatables, slides, covers. Sailcloth: DacronŽ and monofilm.

Most auto detailing places carry it.

BTW I had Llumar Air 80 tint installed on my windshield. It's a very light tint but reflects 99% UV and offers 43% heat rejection. Link: http://www.formulaonetinting.com/win...rotection.html

The most high-tech accessory on your car has no moving parts. The incredibly advanced AIR Blue film uses nano-ceramic technology to achieve its extraordinary level of protection. This protection has been specially designed with your car's electronic accessories in mind: Air Blue film does not interfere with cell phones, radios, radar detectors, or global positioning systems.

Thats the one I actually have on my car, had the dealer send the car their before I received it. About detailing shops, we don't have many good ones over here unlike the US . I will ask around though and see.

PS: Mohammed I think you should also wrap your speedo/instrument hood with Alcantera too - to give your car that extra touch. ala 1M look.
Is there two types of M trim?
If you would look what our cars have and real M steering that piece where the M logo is its deeper on M cars

Yes, the M3 & 1M trim piece is slightly different from a 135i (M sport). Like you say, where the M logo goes the trim is recessed more and blended in a crease.

I think this is(?) the M3/1M trim piece part: #32307845940
I think I paid around 63 euros for it. The M3 steering wheel ran me about ~370 euros (w/o tax). Then my dealer charged me 20 euros to install the steering wheel!

The trim piece on a 135i is more smooth with just the M logo at the bottom. Like what comes on a 135i with full M sport, seats, alcantera headliner, M sills, steering wheel and shifter.

M3 tri stitched wheel...

I went with the M sport, just looked cleaner to be honest. The are the same price on getBMWparts.com weirdly enough the alcantara trim is actually cheaper by 56$ or something

I switched from my M Sport to a PerformanceII Steering Wheel one and a half Years ago (it still looks like on his first Day!) and i it. If the Alcantara is eventually ugly/gone i bring the Wheel to a Saddler and let him wrap it in Leather.

Does the stock non-M trim fit on the Alcantera wheel? I want to get the blue wheel and add paddles to my car but keep the stock trim since it isn't an M car.

My 135 is DCT, so if I wanted to fit the M3 wheel, I'd need to get the M3 DCT version, but will the 135 OEM DCT paddles fit this wheel or would I need to upgrade to M3 paddles as well.......??
