I think you are going to have to make that one yourself. I couldn't even find a center console removal DIY, just trim removal. Try picking up a Bentley service manual.

I think a DIY for that on the forum might just be a bit too big. I also just checked my Bently manual for you and I didn't see anything that covered entire dashboard removal there. I may have missed it but I'm not seeing it. I'll look again later tonight and if I do find it I'll post back here.

Didn't notice you don't own an M3 (wrong forum ), but it's crazy to do that even on a 335. Wouldn't have been cheaper/easier to just buy a car with iDrive/nav???

This is the guide I used when doing my extended leather retrofit, it was spot on accurate. I did not have one leftover fastener of any kind and everything went very smoothly.
