lorinzo - looks good!
mdosu - it's not plastic, it's leather that has been textured.
I've had CL on my Mcoupe some years back and it was nice and easy to care for, but yea, not much contrast. My e90 has the AL which I can't stand... running my fingers across it gives me the nails on a chalkboard feeling. It looks pretty nice, visually speaking, much better than what Audi had in their B7 series S4, but it's cold and cold feeling. I'm shopping for a full CF, real CF, replacement, or I'm going to wrap with CF. The trouble I've run into, however, is that there is no good CF wrap. It all is fake/printed CF, rather than a weave on a sticker.
Anyone find a good quality wrap? And no, the 3M stuff people are using is not CF.
