I gave this a shot with the 1080 film mentioned by deansbimmer . I also tried to wrap the shift knob but it is tricky around the curved parts and I had trouble getting some wrinkles out.

I have a cf cover coming for the shift knob that was mentioned in the general forum that I'm gonna try.

Thinking of trying to wrap the shift knob as well, only the silver area. Not a fan of the silver color.
Yes, it has to be removed by cutting the tabs (only the melted part so you still have some tab left). Once its wrapped install the idrive trim and glue it.

I didnít remove the idrive trim. I wrapped over and then cut around it with a sharp exacto blade.

Your right if you're using the 3m stuff and have a steady hand. I used a fabric and spray glue so it was necessary.

Just my opinion but, you will have a cleaner, more factory like finish if the trim goes over the wrap.

My trim was painted by iND so I assume they took the black controller trim off to paint it and then glued it back on

a fellow M3post member thompsac25 wrapped my center console trim and it came out great.
if any of you guys want to have this done id def recommended asking him to do this for you. he had it done in a day, great guy to talk to and the charge for the job was surprisingly low, which included return shipping and materials.

^ Looks good! Matches the rest of the trim well with the clear coat.
