I was thinking of doing the same to mine. I was gonna go with piano black. Do u know how much it's gonna cost to do it? I am sick of the wood trim and want to wrap mine as well.

I think piano black might look too plain with grey interior, CF would look good but if you don't have CF anywhere else then it doesn't match

Piano black. Not sure how a vinyl wrap finish looks though. CF is a very close contender, but fake CF is fake CF.

The nice thing about the CF vinyl is that it isn't shiny. It also adds some texture/pattern to the interior, which makes it interesting. As far as not having CF anywhere else, that doesn't really matter since you'd have it evenly dispersed around the interior with doors, dash, and center console. Piano black looks great, too, but nothing's like the real thing with that color. I think the CF look would add some interest/pop to that gray interior.

I think that a black leather vinyl would set it off.

I was going to post this same topic. I have grey leather interior with wood trim and want to change it up.

I love how black cf looks with all black interior so would grey cf look good with grey interior? Or even the brushed aluminum look?

Im looking for suggestions and pictures of grey interiors with wrapped trims if anyone has some.

Have a local buddy who redid his trim in black suede, took him a few hours on a weekend, but man it looks great. Just something to add to your list incase you are a fan of Suede too.

maybe this will help you out. Ive been through two wrapped trims. first was carbon fiber fabric from PYspeed along with 3m adhesive glue. Second one (current) is gloss black vinyl. Let me know if you have any questions

Decided to go with the carbon fiber. Much better contrast on my interior. The piano black just didnt seperate well and would of just looked dull on the door trim. I am happy with this color combo. 3m carbon fiber was used.
