    The faux carbon fiber door pillars on my 1999 c230k have faded to black and I want them replaced. Does anyone know that part # for them and approximately how much they cost from the dealership?

    Thanks in advance for reading!

    Hi,
    There are at least two different patterns to these trims that I know of, prefacelift and facelift I believe.
    They are approx. £50 each and that was a few years ago now so expect a price hike.
    As previously stated get them wrapped.

    thanks for the replies everybody =)

    I've long forgot what the fake carbon fiber paint looked like on the door trims, was it more of a matte finish or a glossy finish?

    Which one do you guys think look better? From what I recall, I think door pillar ones were more glossy? But I'm not sure anymore, there are no remnants of it whatsoever left!

    Let me know!

    thank you for your responses =)

    From the video tutorials, it doesn't seem that difficult to wrap myself, is there any particular brand out there is best quality or that you prefer?
