Like I said, I do not know of one. If there is one Europe, you will probably need to get one from overseas.

Got most of my cf trim installed thanks to Dan. A few more shots of the ashtray removal. Sorry for the crap phone cam quality


There's two torx screws you need to remove from the underside to remove the center console.


Pretty much lift up the center and shift it to the right and left to reach the screws.


There's six tabs that hold the ashtray to the center console. I believe I pushed down on the back side of the ashtray to dislodge it from the console.


The ashtray trim surrounds the cover overlapping the edge by about a quarter inch. Used an interior trim removal to pry up on the edges around it and it came out easily.

Hey Andy, great write up. Do the door trims and dash tirm just pop off with clips or or do you have to remove the doors to get to some screws?

step 1 and 2(shown in pics on page 1) are enough to remove the ashtray+trim, or do I have to remove the whole center console to get there?

Links got screwed up when the site from a standalone 1addicts to becoming a part of bimmerpost. I don’t have the time to go through my posts and correct them, if you do a search you will find them.

The e-brake handle needs to be pulled even further up. Pull as hard as you can.
Pull until you think you are about to hurt the car or even yourself. Then get some leverage and pull harder.
(BTW - make sure the shift lever - manual or automatic - is in the center position.)

I had the same experience as you are having, for several minutes. I worked and worked at it. I ended up turning around 180 degrees, facing backward and pushing the lever up.

There is at least one more click that you haven't yet found. It is there, I promise.

Are there any special considerations if you have an iDrive?

If I recall correctly, no. All you need to do is unplug the connector from the underside of the I-Drive controller.

Cool thanks. Ripping apart the interior seems like a bit much just to get to my ashtray, thanks BMW. Does anyone have any trim removal tools that they don't need n e more?

Take a pic of the problem area.
I just spent a week tearing my console apart to install gauges so I can say that I have some experience in the area. My arms are full of cuts to prove it!
