Christmas came early, new interior!

Finally got a big item checked off my wish list, sport seat retrofit!

I was able to find and retrofit sport seats and even wire the electric bolsters to work. (something that is very difficult to do, even after following a ton of DIY's) PM me for a picture of my wiring that can help those stuck with the retrofit.

Also, I finally had 4-5 hours free and wrapped my wood trim in this beautiful Brushed Steel 1080 Vinyl. It has a brushed feel with metallic flakes! Under sunlight it looks incredibly 'premium' and in low light conditions (like my pictures) it has a very modern-metal look. I love it!

Here are the before-after pictures of my E90. Big improvement I would say.

Slowly wrapping up my mods, just a steering wheel improvement left!

In the interior I have done;

LCI Cup Holders
LCI Radio Knobs (Part Number: 65129119423 for pre lci models)
M3 Speaker Grilles (Part Number: 51418045695)
Performance Pedal Set
M3 White LED Cluster Mod
Brushed Steel Vinyl
Sport Seat Retrofit + Side Bolsters Wiring


My old interior just looks dated in comparison!


Thanks for looking.

What's the process in wrapping the trim? Is it easy to take off? I have wood trim as well (which drives me crazy on how easy it scratches) and I'd really like to get Carbon Fiber or brushed steel look that you have.

Pop the trim off, and then heat the vinyl once you stick it on the trim to get perfect edges. Its a process, I recommend following the DIY's or watching a youtube video. Then order extra to test/learn.

**********s ages ago!

They were 'non-ZSP powered' to 'ZSP powered + bolster' so I just had to wire the bolsters.

In the before pic? I did have a sheet of carbon fiber vinyl covering up the inevitable peeling, but it ended up wearing worse because it had no real edges to wrap behind and it didn't stick to the material that well.

Thanks!

Great upgrades, I went with the brushed steel aswell, soo much better than the wood. Where did you buy your m3 rep bumper?

For me it is the easiest piece! I have taken my interior out maybe 7 times now, just pull it up and remove the gear shifter, and unclip 3 cables beneath.

Upgraded radio knobs and speaker grills? I never even knew they were different.

Upgrades look great.
