    Hello Beadt owners. My interior is getting a bit worn looking with some items chipping and breaking. Any advice on best place for replacement parts besides outrageous dealer prices? eBay seems to have a bunch. Anyone replaces their full Carbon Finer trim yet? Thoughts? Looking for new switches, dash buttons, etc.
