I did think about that before i posted.

The centre console looks like its an extension of the carpet which i like. I just think the alcantara looks a little odd on the dash. It might be a little out there but what about dark wood (the shiny black one) inserts? and keep the centre console the way it is??

hmm a possibility! but as standard all the trim pieces are all the same! i wouldn't be a big fan of having two difference colour themes/trims going on in my car! i think it just wouldnt flow well enough if i did that!

cool suggestion though but i dont think im brave enough for that!!

Thanks for that, Not sure I would be brave enough either would love to see your car in the metal. Are you going to the ACE meet? I'm going to try and make it (bring my 07 330D se banger) lol

That thought has already crossed my mind! It looks lovely. I've only wrapped the dash in gloss black so i won't have wasted too much if i did re trim.

So did you trim the side door trims in alcantara as well? Can't tell with the pics

Hey man, where did you get the box to fit the w7? It looks similar to the zenclosure box but I'm not sure. I'd wanna run the 10w7ae in there, only thing according to zenclosure, it only has a 7.75 inch mounting depth and the w7 needs 8 inches. I was considering running a spacer to get the extra depth, but I'd rather get your input about this.

hey bud!

its actually quite clever how its done, from the front yes it looks like a Zen closure but...its actually a full width box going across the whole width of the boot enclosure and then the front is just a front panel made to fill the gaps!

i hope that makes sense lol!

BBS? the red lip gives me the 'vag' feel, not sure why. Are you going for the Euro look?
