    Should I continue to encounter problems buying a trim set, I will purchase the Carbonius carbon fiber set which does not require a wood or plastic trim set because it is 100% carbon fiber.

    Nah I asked him. He send to send $30. USPS would be the cheapest to ship if you wrap the shit out of it out of bubble wrap and then just ship it in a bag. Pretty sure it's $15ish last time I did that.

    Nowadays, when I ship out large items, I just have EAS do it since they get better rates.

    Hey I have a stripped set of titan shadow trim from an M3 coupe if you want it. Someone was prepping it for a wrap, gave up on the project, and sold it to me, who promptly hid it in a corner for 3 years. I'm obviously not going to do anything with it.

    Doesn't come with rear arm rest pieces but they wouldn't fit a vert anyway

    ZHPizza:

    I appreciate the offer but oCarbon requires wood trim instead of plastic. oCarbon conveyed to me they experienced quality issues with plastic; therefore, they require wood trim for carbon warping.

    ZHPizza, how do you know that the M3 trim (except for rear armrests) fits the ZHP?

    Ah ok I'll keep an eye out at the parts yards, but the wood trim is pretty much always cracked all to hell. The plastic seems to be the only one that holds up with time.

    Here's a quick breakdown on trim fits:

    - There is no difference between M3 and non-M cars.

    - The sedan and touring share all of the same parts.

    - Dash pieces (3) fit all models the same (coupe/vert/sedan)

    - Shifter surround is coupe specific, while the sedan and vert are the same

    - Front doors are sedan specific, while the coupe and vert are the same

    - Rear doors are different for all three


    So, for your vert, you would want:
    - Dash pieces from any e46
    - Shifter surround from a vert or sedan
    - Front doors from a vert or coupe
    - Rear arm rests from a vert

    ZHPizza:

    That is excellent information. Thank you.

    After conversing with Matt @ oCarbon via emails, he stated that the images posed in this thread are 12K carbon fiber not 6K.
