Steps
1. Remove a row of Philips head screws.
2. Pull top edge carefully out of invisible cut outs.
3. Sand lightly.
4. Spray matte black.
5. Reinstall.
I did it months ago and it's holding up fine on the road and in high pressure car washes etc.

Change: relocate control for rear door and heated steering wheels, bigger coverage of the rear defroster

I don't like black wheels but I'm getting why others may choose them. These BMW's generate brake dust like no other car on earth. My 19" wheels look terrible after two weeks if I don't clean them. This winter they will just have to look brake dust black until spring.

Blind spot indicators and a less stiff horn (you really have to press it hard on BMWs).
