CF Interior Mods - Teaser

A little CF interior teaser.

Sorry for the crappy iPhone pic's once it's installed I'll take better ones with a proper camera as there are a few other parts of the dashboard I'm thinking of getting done as well.

No it's not the BMW CF interior, its been wrapped in a 3M CF material and then heated so it conforms to the shape of the original parts.

One of my clients that's located in my building did it for me locally in Sydney.

Yep, all those things

Actually it's replacing the Piano Black trim (I had my original Alum trim wrapped) so it's a tad lighter. Just installed the 4 x door trims and the RHS vent trim, looks great so far

Looks great. For the people bitching about weight, its like 1m of fabric. Its like the difference of peeing before a drive or not.

I did mine and love it. Especially because i had the ugliest wood trim ever conceived before.

I installed most of it last night, looks awesome

I need to get the ashtray cover re-done + I'm going to remove the trim around the AC controls, DVD and short cut buttons and have that wrapped as well so it flows through the center of the console.

Once it's done I'll post some pics.

Oops - guilty as charged. At least I don't have a sunroof

Seriously though, great idea WOPALX - I like my Al trim/black combo but it is a little prone to damage and I imagine the cf will look as good and be more durable.

Some quality pics once the installation is complete will be good

I've had the same stuff on my iPhone for months now and it's very durable thus far.

I have a few more trims to remove that I want to have wrapped and then I'll take some pics.

I can help you remove your trims mate but I'm not doing the wrapping myself. The guy that did it for me will offer the service, his office is in Alexandria.
