Default Faded seat lever solution

The seat levers on my car were extremely faded and becoming an eye sore. I wanted to share that these are pretty easy to swap out and BMW sells the oem part for about $25 a side.

Basically what you do is slide a screw driver and GENTLY pry up on a tab. Then pull the lever towards you.
