I think as far as colors, your options 99% of the time are black or shade of gray, including silver.

Depends on your interior I guess. For wraps, just google interior wrap E9x. tons of threads.

Had carbon got sick of it(everyone does it) You can wrap whatever color you like I think white looks nice on black!



A lil hard to keep clean but dirt rubs right off on matte surface

Yea think it depends on a few things -- what kind of look you're going for
What color is your interior now?

I have Jet Black E90 328i preLCI w/Grey leather interior.....it had the walnut burl trim -- I covered it all w/3M 1080 high gloss black - MUCH better!

Shoot a pic of your interior and post it up here and I'm sure you'll get suggestions....I didn't want CF either - it's overplayed for my liking...

I was going to do mine with a metallic blue since I'm a Cowboys fan (ducks!) but wasn't sure it would have looked good so went w/black

Brushed steel 1080 3M. That's how I did mine over black dakota leather, stunning!

I was between this and piano black. Decided on the Brushed Steel since piano black wrap does not look identical to a painted trim, it is harder to keep clean, and scratches easily. Very happy with my choice.

Any recommendations for what would match nicely with the saddle brown interior?

+2, where did you get it from? Easy vinyl to work with?

Is this the same stuff?

And how much would I need to do the wrap?

Yes, that is the same stuff. I did not do the wrapping myself, since I considered the work was worth the $130 they charged me. Although I did not wrapped it myself, I was a full week with two sample strips that I moved through the whole trim. I think its a very easy material to work with. I don't think you even need a heat gun since the material just sticks as contact paper, but you still should ask about this last point.

one of the things i will do next. But right now i have no idea what wrap. Carbon is cool but every car has the carbon look.
If i had a back interior i would go white. Looks really good!
But with grey interior & blue car?
Maybe i will try blue to match the outside color.

You should definitely use a heat gun (low heat) or hair dryer to work with vinyl - otherwise the corners will be much more difficult.
I did the gloss black 3M 1080 and got it from metrorestyling on eBay
Very fast shipping and great to deal with
Looks good w/grey interior...

Agreed everyone has done CF and it's a bit overdone for my liking...plus with a grey interior wasn't sure I'd like the look -so went with high gloss black
but my exterior is Jet Black -- I kind of wanted to do a blue on interior, mainly because I'm a Cowboys fan lol and if my exterior was blue I would have
Black just seemed logical choice
I haven't found that it scratched easily like someone else pointed out
I would say you do see fingerprints on it if you happen to smudge them across the vinyl for some reason so I try not to touch it lol
But I'm VERY pleased with how it came out vs the wood trim - definitely much better
Good thing about the vinyl is it's pretty inexpensive (spent $50 and had plenty to spare - which I would recommend if you've never done it before)
and you can always change it later if you see something else you like

Good luck

Vinyl is just easier to do and I think the look vs time involved etc would be about the same....
In a perfect world I guess I'd get the black set from Tishcer for about $450 but I like that I can pretty easily change mine down the road if I decide to
Don't think I've ever seen anyone paint their actual trim and have it look very good - on this forum or any other but maybe I'm wrong...

Well, if you had it professionally done, that's another story.....
Did they clear coat it also?
If you don't mind me asking, how much did they charge you?
