Anyone know what the right part number is to get the light brushed aluminium finish (as was standard on per pre-2008 Breras and 159s) centre console trim? I.e. the one that gets scratched if you leave house keys attached to the key fob :eek:

I think this is the right page on EPER but I have no idea which one is the correct finish, and for a right hand drive car. I can't see prices either:

FIAT ePER

Thanks for any help!

You might want to look at wrapping or dipping.

I got lucky and got a new one for £100 on ebay, but I'm sure it was north of £350 at the time....

Well I'm trying to get the dealer to pay for the part as part of the sale of the vehicle, as the existing trim had been battered with a set of keys :mad:

I'm happy to fit it myself as Wynne has posted a handy guide in this lounge :)

This is because they ended up forking out £900 to buy the trim and replace on a previous car. No idea why it cost them that much, don't really care,just want the part...

Best to enter the chassis number on eper and see which part number it suggests.

Found the part - costs £248 for the full interior aluminium set (which tallys with earlier posts on here). As there's just a bit of key pitting on the centre console, but it's not awful, I've agreed to go halves with the dealer for a full new set. That's good as I'll have spares of the rest of the alu trim in case it gets damaged.

Thats a good result. Bet you are happy with that. :)


Now, if only someone had done a "how to" step by step guide on changing the centre trim, that would be really useful right now.......;)

All the parts for £248? Including the door/glovebox/steering wheel?

And if only there was an easy way to read it on your phone so you could refer to it whilst doing it... :(

£248 is bit with vents etc only
Makes more sense. A single door strut cost me over £90 for my original Brera!

Would have considered getting a set to change the plastic bits in the new Brera at that price.
