    Yeah. was always suspicious of "Not removable - welded instead" advice, as far more expensive procedure than 'insert tabs'.

    My SS came with that horrible looking glossy 'carbon fibre' trim pictured in images on the first page. It looks super fake.

    2015 and 2016 SSV came with nicer matte carbon fibre look trim (pic. Below).

    2017 redline had piano gloss black trim...

    That is much nicer. My 2014 R8 has the same glossy grey "CFRP" as yours. Its not nice, but got used to it now, the suedette distracts from it a bit!
    Good luck in your trim adventures.

    I have the matt look, it's pretty nice (MY15 Redline).

    The glossy does look pretty nasty in your pics, is it everywhere (dash, shifter, steering wheel, doors as well??).

    Gonna say that getting a set may be a case of coming across a wreck.

    In my car (2016 SS black edition) it is on the dash, shifter and front door trim. The rest of the trim is piano black

    Hi Ron
    Yes they are all removable.
    I changed my fake carbon fibre calais ones to the black woodgrain from a cream interior series one calais.
    Easy job, but the door trims need to be removed. They all just unscrew. Nil plastic weld.
    I posted before and after pics on here somewhere
    Ill see if I can find the post

    I even changed the gearshift surround and 3 dash pieces. They are all available separately from Holden without purchasing the door trims. From memory the whole set is around $600 for the 6 pieces

    So the door trim pieces can be purchased separately to the whole door trim ?

    Yep they can.
    Each piece is separate. No need to buy the whole door trim
    When I got quoted, I had to supply the VIN
    Just found a cream interior calais on carsales and used their VIN. Holden them gave me the part number for each piece. You could do the same if your having a hassle getting part numbers.
    Ended up finding them at a wrecker as the new ones were a bit expensive.
    And yes the door trims need to come off which is easy. Just take your time removing them and putting them back on so you don't give the retaining clips a hard time.
    Oh and I remember I had to peel back the soundproofing on the door trim to get to the screws then a good quality contact adhesive or hot glue to stick it back on. Don't have to rip the whole thing off, Just enough to get behind to the screws.

    I was hoping that someone with matte carbon fibre insert could look up the part number which is underneath.
    Good chance to clean all the dirt around the shifter during the process ;)
