Lightbulb Interior Trim in blue?

i have no idea what i should do with my interior. If i had black interior i def would go white with my trim. But i have not really an idea what to do with grey
Thought of the BMW Performance Carbon trim but that is ridiculously priced and everyone (many) has carbon trim. Now i wanna wrap it.

Maybe carbon blue? To match the outside color?

the upper left.

Or Brushed Steel Blue (3M™ Scotchprint 1080 BR217)


It didn't match perfect but i think it's ok.

And gloss black for the center console.

My interior, sick of Wood


Suggestions are welcome!

to me the colour of the trim needs to match the inside of the car more so than the outside

when your interior trim looks like it was paint/vinyl color-matched to the outside, it then looks like a beetle or mini or fiat 500. LOL

the gloss paint looks tacky but the brushed steel blue might look nice, and i assume you would wrap everything that is wood? cus just the dash trim looks out of place, you need more matching compnonents

I agree with the glossy paint looking tacky. I've seen some bmw's with the aluminum trim and it looks sharp!

yup, everything that is wood had to go. But not sure if the center console will be gloss black or blue too.
Or all black... decisions, decisions.

Looks extremely tacky and cheap. Don't do it.
