OEM CF questions

Hello everyone, I have a question regarding BMW OEM CF pieces.

First, is the BMW CF Trim, as seen in the link below, real CF or is it just the CF Leather trim? I have the CF Leather, but am looking to upgrade to actual CF.

Second, is the center GTS center console, as sold by IND and seen below, actually OEM? If so, what is the part number?

Thanks.

Thanks.
To answer your first question, it is real carbon fiber not carbon fiber leather.

And to your second question don't bother asking because you are not goin to be able to buy it at the dealer or any part distributor.
That's why IND is selling them!
They have very good connection in Germany, that's how they are able to get them. If you thinking of buying it, I would suggests buying it from IND.
It will be alot faster and easier for you.

Before u ask, it will be a lot better if you do search and then ask.

If I sounded offensive to you then I am sorry.
But I didn't mean to.

Thanks for confirming the first part. I did search, but I did not find anyone asking either specific question. I ask about the part number to verify it's actually OEM.

Not a problem.
Well then you could of searched for item descriptions. Lol
There are few about them here.
Anyway, that center console is oem. You can verify by contacting IND!

Having the part number won't help you. US dealers cannot get Euro parts. Even in Europe the GTS parts are hard to get.

It's actually OEM, unless IND is lying and selling fakes which I highly doubt.

Let me know on your carbon leather. I am looking for that. PM about some real carbon trim pieces I have too and maybe we can work something out

Its OEM, I have it installed. Favorite mod to date.

The Console is also included in the "Edition" Models that were released overseas
