Carbon Dipped Interior Trims - Look

Got my interior trims finished on Friday, and fitted them. I love the finish, what do you guys think?

Thanks for looking

WHOA!!

Leaps and bounds above OEM!! This isn't "dipped" though, it's a wrap with a special clear coat, not so?

Yes these are carbon dipped (water transfer printed) then a special gloss applied to them

Haha, I realized that after I posted. When I had my A4, I was considering the option, and I've been really interested in ordering a set from oCarbon since they're in the US. They used a three-step wrap/resin/sanding process to get the finish, that's why I asked. The trim for the Audis are reasonable, but pretty expensive for the e90!!

Your steering wheel is on the wrong side.

This looks like hydrographics. Can you pick any film to have dipped? How do the inside corners and tight radius areas look?

Might be a good option if someone was able to truly order whatever film they want. I have only seen mass production operations stateside.

I was going to say the same thing, I have looked into similar things for other projects never thought of the trim
