Smile My interior swap from Black --> Coral Red

So after a year and 4 heartaches (couple forum members fell through on the swap) i finally was able to find a local forum member to swap my black leather interior for his coral red leather interior.

It was definitely PIA to remove some of the side panels and back seat (top part) but i'm glad my buddy Rob (Cyphr) was there to help me get through it and it's finally over....

That was really nice of the guy to swap interiors with you. Looks good. I wanted the red too, but I figured after several years, I'd be like "What was I thinking" or get sick of it. I ordered Saddle Brown instead.

Not feeling the BMW shoulder pads in the back...

Awesome, I've been wondering about doing this... so the seats were a complete swap and the panel pieces just had to be pulled out?

I'd love to do a swap but I don't think my interior is in good enough shape. I'd probably have better luck finding a donor car and just buying the pieces.
