Hi guys, I'm in boston too and want to wrap my e92 m3 center console in CF to look like my CF leather trim. Do you know which wrap resembles it the most? can u wrap the center console even though it is factory leather wrapped? and does anyone know someone who could do the wrap? unfortunately I have no experience

Having worked with a number of products, I'm really not a fan of the di-noc for the interior. It's great for exterior use though. The fabric I use is a semi-gloss black cf and compliments the rest of the interior very well. No complaints so far


Where can I get this and who can do this for me?

How did you wrap the ash tray cover...does the silver piece unscrew? Looking into doing this myself.
Thanks!

First, remove the lid by unclipping it from the rotating assembly. Turn the lid over and you'll see the silver piece is pressed to fit then glued to the lid. Carefully remove the glue then apply an even force to both of the pegs. It should come right out. Installation is just the reverse. Hope this helps!

Sorry to bring up old thread but Ive ordered some 1080 series semi a 5 x 2 roll and plan on doing this. My question, is how do you ensure the vinyl carbon lines all match up on each piece? Meaning, the direction or flow of the vinyl all match? Or am I not thinking of this the right way? Thanks!

With the fabric if you apply a resin clear coat is this really any different than doing real carbon fiber trim?

@ Cyphr - I flipped mine over and you cant see the back of the trim. Mine (from an m3) has a solid black panel. Any idea how to remove the metal trim?

You have to separate the piece from the assembly first.
