Good DIY. Fortunately my body shop took care of all of this for me, but they do make a huge difference in the appearance.

Nice write up. I thought you had to pull the panels to do this, but I guess you could see in the dark.

Found these handle covers on rmeuropean for $13.54/ea, and $15.05/ea for the rear if you have a 4 door like me :halm: . Don't know how much your dealer charges, but if you order $65 or over parts from them you get free shipping. They sell oem for real cheap. Apparently also more you order faster shipping you can get for free. Sorry for the thread jack, but thought it might save people money.

Also, while im in here talkin about trim. For the rear window i need new trim, that something a window installer (Safelite, etc) would do?

Awesome writeup thanks, I def have to do this!
