I would like to replace all of the little faux-chrome trim pieces in the interior. They do nothing but cause sunlight to be reflected into my eyes.

Before I get a trim removal tool out and start pulling on these, is there a diagram on how they are clipped in?

Specially the trim around the gauges and the center console.

I would be happy to pop them off and plastidip, but if another trim level has black pieces instead of chrome I would prefer to buy those.

Same here. Hate all the chromed plastic. Looks like a pimpmobile.

I would think that the easiest/best course of action is wrapping in place. I would also like to remove mine, but am unsure how to do it.

Lots of vids on youtube for removing interior pieces. Main take away is on the narrower bits go slow.

I know this is an older thread but the glare on the interior chrome drives me crazy. I didn’t find much out there for a fix. I took 3m matte black vinyl wrap and cut into a thin strip. Then I used the press tool that came with kit to press material into tiny grooves and carefully trimmed excess with exacto knife. I’m doing the door handles next. I’m too scared to use a blade around the leather areas. Worst glare for me is the trim strip and door handle.
