Interior Trim Wrapping
« on: August 03, 2010, 12:08:41 PM »
I have the Brushed Aluminium and I was thinking about wrapping it in either a 'piano black' type finish or a 'carbon fibre' effect, has anyone had a go at doing this?

I did my dads 330d in carbon and it looks amazing .....I've been meaning to do my own for ages but it's just getting my ass into gear.

As for piano black I would get them painted by a bodyshop or diy

I have read a similar thread on this on GTR Owners Club. It seems to be a pretty simple and effective mod, I would personally go for the Carbon if I was to do it.

I'll try and dig the thread out for you.

Don't. This is one mod I was thinking of with the 3M Carbon film - see YouTube...

Mitch I'm sorry man - I laughed. Forget the old jokes this was done when you fell arse over t*t down those stairs, completely out of your face!

Seriously, don't care - just get well for the meet! Kidding, get well soon mate. Hope it doesn't affect work mate.
