Lets Talk Interior

Hey guys. Long story short, the majority of exterior mods are complete. Now time for the interior. Does anyone have suggestions on what to add? (Besides new steering wheel ). Please excuse the messy car. I've got some flyers from a few shops i've been to and some change of clothes from interesting nights

So far I have LED interior lighting, performance shift knob and boot, and performance ebrake

Here are some pics

I don't have any experience with wrapping. Could I do it myself easily?

meh, maybe I'm weird, but I think that BMW did a pretty good job on the interiors to begin with... so my "mod" is going to be saving up for a full detail in the spring to make it look like new again.

I would look for a good used sport wheel, that will make a nice difference as well.

yes you can! i just wrapped my interior, vinyl is a little hard to work with but you can do it. Removing trim is pretty easy from car. only thing is removing vents from the trim.

Alcantara is man made suede
It's better for UV protection. This is my headliner and will have no UV exposure. My car is garaged 95% of the day so the pillars will see very little sun during the time I own the vehicle

Keep watching the classifieds, they show up every now and then. Not often, but sometimes.

Which vinyl would match my beige interior the best? Gloss black or carbon fiber?

I was just about to swap my wood color trim for carbon fiber, I have beige interior as well, but I didn't go through with it because I decided that the wood color with beige is more classy and looks better than carbon fiber.
