Not been doing much with lately due to the poor weather, I've been thinking of changing the interior or some of the interior trim to break it up a little, came across a black centre console,


Cream out black in



The cream rear tray had been scratched and damaged by the prevous owner do repaired that




I'm not struck with the black against wood trim so I took the console back out and put the cream one back in for now
And have a re think

That looks good, i know exactly what you mean about breaking up the colour, mine was all gray so I 'Car Dipped' some areas, came out well.

Can I ask what kind of driving you and mpg you get. I'm not too impressed with my 330D at the mo in the mpg area

So today as part of my plan I emptied my van to go on a small road trip to pick this lot up


It's a Full SE cloth trim
This is how my trim looks at the moment




It's going to take some time but have made a start
Changed the hook covers

Yep, this thread: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=943111

I did the rear door handles too, didn't need to go mad, subtle change but makes a lot of difference.

So for the 2nd time I took the console out and fitted a black one and this time it's staying I'm not liking black against the dark wood, but will sort this later



The cloth trim came was complete with armrest but not a split one so fitted my cream one



Next job was to strip the door panels the drill out the plastic welds to get the cloth panel off







All stripped


The repeat the proses on the cream panels







Next was to glue the cream leather panel onto the black door card
For this I used a hot glue gun and some clamps


Rebuild the panel back up



Fitted back in


One down 3 to go

Looking good mate

How difficult are the colour panels to remove? I have some Lemon Dakota rear cards but the card has no blinds built into the door! If I can just swap the panel that would be awesome.

Looking good!

Striping those door cards must have been a right ball ache...... I did 1 & it took forever, so I just gave up!
