that looks really nice! i recommend gloss or matte black for your shifter... the silver throws off the look IMO

I love blue so too much is never enough (yet I got a black sapphire with coral red )), but that IS a lot of blue
I find it highly pleasing to the eye though personally, and could appreciate the hard work and love that went into it.
So long as you love it every time you take the helm, that is all that matters right?

well I was certainly expecting a mixed reaction from everyone, but at least I am happy with it

yeah I hated the wood that used to be there...

that blue on the trim like that reminds me of those cheezy one piece colored seat covers by APC lol
Thanks for your honest opinion.

What size did you get to wrap the trim? I wouldn't mind trying this out but shipping from metrorestyiling kills it for me.
I got 48x48 from there, and shipping was only a few dollars, where do you live??

Id say your car would stand out with a different set of rims. Either aluminum or black wheels, but the blue puts it over the top.

If you like it though, that's all that matters! This coming from a guy who likes the simple looking upgrades for a more clean stockish look
thanks, to each his own :-)

yes, i was hoping for something a little more original!

yeah my first try, I got much better towards the end, but the corners all looked good when I was done, then they turned back into the stretched bad looking corners :-(

I consider trying blue carbon on a Deep Sea Blue car. But in my case your specific blue will not work well... I wonder if they make it in darker colors.
yeah I have not seen it in a darker color, but maybe you could find it somewhere!

ha well, not everyone can be a fan :-)

well I thought about the shifter ,but then there are the paddle shifters on the steering wheel which look impossible to wrap, so I just left it to match the paddle shifters.

I usually hate the fake stuff and stick to real carbon or something like a plain color wrap, but this looks really interesting and unique on your car. Approved by a true carbon fiber addict.

I didn't like it very much until I saw that your car was blue. So great job on the work and I like the theme. I love that it's unique. Not my cup of tea, I would've done regular carbon fiber. But it's your car, and your opinion is the only one that matters. Good job OP

Looks dope! Was figuring the comments would be 50/50 but I would definitely copycat if I had black interior. Good job!

I'm kinda diggin it. I opened this thread thinking "this should be entertaining..."
It looks really bright blue in some pics and pretty dark in others. If it looks darker in person, count me as a fan!

And there's always gonna be haters. Just do you!

Honestly, it looks great!

Another option, if you ever get tired of the blue CF, is the scotchprint 1080 brushed blue metal vinyl. It looks great, and it's a very neat blue color. If I ended up with the Blue M-Sport 328 I would have done up the interior in that...missed opportunity
