Carbon fiber interior

Hey guys, want to wrap my interior trim but I need your opinions as a base for color. I have beige interior and I want to know if silver, white, or black carbon fiber would look good with the beige. Thanks!

Does the black cf still look good on beige interior?

I think it would look good, it will still match your dash/arm rests and such. OR if you skip carbon, you could wrap in plain silver or something lighter.

I also recommend looking through this http://www.e90post.com/forums/showth...light=interior it will probably give you some good ideas

i have no idea what makes you happy kat, dont mind my opinion. some ppl like poplar/alum/cf/piano. I think leather/suede wrapping looks inviting and sporty.

I understand where ur coming from with the cf and beige which is why I was asking what looked best? I just don't like the wood. I mean even a simple black or silver would look better but I just feel like they are so plain Jane :-/ In the end it is my choice just figured other ppl had this issue too with beige

I tried vinyl and, well, it looks like vinyl. Removed it within a week. I know a lot of people here use it, but people also use Plasti Dip.

If you must, then maybe go Gloss black. Usually can't go wrong with black.
