Looks good OP.

Doing mine soon too, but I'm going with dark brushed metallic 3M Scotchprint.

I think it's funny the grey interior gets no love. This is my 2nd E9X and when I bought it I was ONLY looking at cars with grey interiors cuz I loved it so much on my last one. Lol. Oh well, to each their own.

How much material did you purchase? You mentioned 2 yards (6 ft), but how wide? I'll be wrapping mine in the next week or so and want to make sure I have enough not only for the dashboard and door trims, but to cover the center console and ensuring the carbon fiber pattern is in the same direction as the dash. TIA!

Definitely much better than the wood! How long did it take you?

And now that you have this done, can't help but think that dyeing your leather coral red would just make your interior pop beautifully.

It took me few days, I was taking my time and I am not big fan of dying anything, I like it original, whatever the color came with car

Anyone still have any spare fabric? I don't think Pyspeed sells them anymore.

2 questions as I'm doing mine now:
- What is the best way to work around the outer corners of the trim so that it doesn't get all wrinkly or bunched up?
- any thoughts on whether or not I should apply light-moderate heat with a heatgun over the entire piece after it's finished to promote better adhesion?

TIA!
