There are a couple of reputable shops that do it:
Sekan skin
ReStyle it

Not sure of locations, I think restyle it may be in Markham.

Would be interested to see if any others or independents also do this work... Maybe at a discount to the larger shops.

I found a place close by me called New Image. I'm going to give them a try.

Once I get the interior trim back I will post pics and report back on their quality.

Honestly I didn't ask. They are repairing the side bolters on my seats (top and bottom) (which I was quoted $700 for). Taking them interior trim was an after thought. I will let you know what they charged and post pics once I get everything back.

Blank cheque, kinda scary eh...LOL

I think the going rate for interior trim wrap should be in the range of $300-$350.

Keep us posted on your quote and the finished product if you get it done.

Also see if they have the gloss CF wrap. Some shops used to carry it, but stopped because it was harder to work with.

Cheers!

Carbon Fiber trim

Just get the actual carbon fiber trim from an M3. I picked it up and installed it myself. Local places charge too much to wrap in carbon fiber. I know a guy who was doing it for 30 a piece I think but I went with the m3 trim and plasti dipped the shifter part black.

Going range on wrapping is correct. I am getting this done as well in the summer. Difference is I'm getting white carbon fiber instead of regular carbon fiber. My friend is helping me with the process thank God I am just ordering a couple rolls on eBay I'm paying for the rolls as he offered to wrap my trim if I bought the rolls so he could wrap his trim. I will post pictures when done but its a hefty job

They never made an OEM carbon fiber kit for the E46 M3 that didn't start until the E9X

My trim is ready however I haven't had a chance to pick it up yet. I will be sure to post pics and let you all know the cost.

You guys should join our FB group if you haven't already. There are a few members who do it on their own and do a very good job with better pricing then vendors.

However, if you use SekanSkin (Britannia/Dixie) or Restyle It (Richmond Hill + another new location) I'm sure you'll be happy.

Which FB group? I'm aware of BMW TN and MaxB... Are there others we should be aware of?

With a bit of time and patience, this is not difficult to do yourself. The trim is mostly easy to take off, with the trim around the shifter being the more difficult piece.

The actual wrapping can be done in less than two hours. Just buy the wrap from kijiji, and use a hairdryer when applying.

I had 0 experience doing this and was very successful at completing the interior wrap on my e46 and e90.

For vinyl work, there are a lot of shops in the GTA that do it... Restyle IT, GTA Wrapz, Krown Lakeshore, Auto Links, etc.

I used New Image interiors back in the day when I reupholstered my front and rear seats, as well as the door skins. They did a great job.

Was this your first time dealing with vinyl wrap?
