Interior Carbon fiber vinyl! New thread :)

As a few of you will remember, i started with blue, on my first attempt. I've since moved to red.. and i did my steering wheel! Comments?

(Blue is still on one part, havent removed yet was using as comparison, and my emblem isnt on yet either)

I'd go with silver. Red looks a little too plasticky.

Liked the blue better but neither look great. Needs to be a darker color to really work. Something subtle so it's not standing out like a sore thumb.

I have aluminum with some real carbon fiber accent pieces. Considered going to full carbon but it's a little flashy for my tastes.

Not sure what you expected - IMO looks bad. But to each his own.

BTW - you asked for "comments"

If you reallllllly want some red/blue in there, I'd suggest going with a normal color trim and using some of these piping strips from Bimmian:

I dont want red/blue i am going with red, blue was a test. And i dont want black carbon fiber, every single person i know who does work on their interior uses black carbon fiber. i want something different.
