Restoration doesn't always mean new.
I have previously documented how poorly the E46 M3's interior ages and decays upon planning and beginning my interior restoration of the Phoenix.
Nothing embodies this more than the easily scratched rubberized black coating that BMW used back then.
Repairing and restoring can be an expensive process often reserved to professionals, in these cases buying new makes more sense.
Unless you know the right people.
Read my Build Journal Entry on my experience with Alex's Interior Trim Restoration service for the E46 M3.
Superior Technique & Materials.
Alex has perfected a technique that allows him to recreate the exact BMW matte and soft-touch finishes with much better durability. He no longer offers Gloss due to the VOC chemicals.
He uses much superior materials to ensure the finishes will last much longer. This applies to all other finishes he offers.
That, along with the reputation for quality he had built over the years, convinced me to give this a shot.
- Alex will contact you to validate your trim restoration options and color if applicable.
- You will need to ship your trims to Alex at the address he provides in the PayPal invoice.
- Once your trims are received, expect +/- 5 business days to complete the work.
- Alex will get a quote for shipping the trims back to you. He will invoice you via PayPal. You have the option to provide a return shipping label as well.
Notes on armrests:
The front & rear armrests restoration service includes the top painted restoration and bottom soft-touch black section along with disassembly and reassembly of the armrests.
