Boot carpet colour option

Did the E92 only came with grey boot carpet or was black an option?

I prefer to have black boot/arch carpets but from most of the e92 braking I have seen have only grey carpets?

Also does anyone know if such thing as carpet dye/spray exists?

I remember seeing years ago on wheeler dealers where they had a grey parcel shelf on a peugeot 205 and spray painted it black to mathc the interior. I dont really want to use normal spray in case of the smell coming through/burning the fabric because of the solvents etc

I have used something similar but not on this scale and it covered a milk stain on carpet however the smell was quite strong. I would imagined you'll gas yourself if you do the whole boot!

If you have a beige interior then you get beige boot carpet - but that's probably not what you're after

They probably avoid black fabrics as they show all marks and are very hard to keep clean.

Isn't the boot grey the same dark grey as your interior carpets? It is on mine - do you want to spray the interior ones too?

I made a post similar to this a few weeks ago, but without luck, I have beige interior but grey boot interior and it's getting on my nerves because the carpets inside the car is black so I've got a tricolour.

Similar position to you and likewise really annoying me as I have boot trays that were grey but I have sprayed them gloss black and would like the carpet to match

so far i can only see dye'ing the carpet as an option, there are quite a few black dye's on ebay but I have decided for the time being to leave it as it is as i am a bit scared of messing it up

Maybe if I can get my hand on another bootcarpet may give it a try..
