    Does anyone know if door trim inserts are removable on VF.

    These are the strips in the upper section of the door trim that match the dash trim i.e. either piano black or carbon fibre look ?

    I am looking at changing the dash trim to piano black so it would be good if i can do the same with doors to match...

    actually i think i know the bit you mean - the long strip that's under the handles and alcantara?

    this bit? haha just noticed you added an image to your OP.

    Good question actually i bet a lot of people that change out the dash trim and wheel would want to remove this and swap it for a different colour.

    here's the back of a door card, i'm going to say yes but the door card would have to come out. what colour are you coming from.

    Might be easier overall to sell yours and buy others?

    I asked Holden spare parts about these inserts a couple of years ago when I was collecting parts and they told me they weren't available separately and I would have to purchase the whole door card for about $700 each.

    I've been meaning ever since to check out the wreakers for them.

    It looks like they are removable though...
    It looks like screws hold them in from the inside of the door trim...
    If this is the case i could vinyl wrap them in piano black

    the fake CFRP look is not great, but piano black is terrible for scratches. Is there a third way?

    I'm not saying they can't be removed all I know is I was told I couldn't purchased them individually.

    On that day I bought a lot of trim pieces along with other parts for storage and the quote I was given for the doors cards and this is for a VF2 SSV Redline Ute is:

    Part number GM-92286354 $699.63
    Part number GM-92286350 $696.79

    I don't know why the difference in prices from left to right side but the driver's side card is different from a sedan as the Ute doesn't have the hole for the boot release button.

    I purchased separately all the black inserts trays and auto window button trims to suit a Ute as per mpower's post #4 as they are not included with the door card.

    Even though I was told the trim you're after is not available you may get them from spare parts now and that answer is only a phone call away, just ring a dealer to find out.

    Definitelly removable but the entire door trim needs to be removed to access the screws...
