Carbon Fiber console

I'm thinking about getting the carbon fiber console but have never seen it installed. Does anyone have some pics of theirs.
Thanks

First off dude you don't know what you are talking about, it's real carbon and if you don't like who cares. Whatever BMW you might own I may think sucks. Who cares.

Thanks for sending the pics

I love how people try to knock others' tastes down when all they can go off of is an iPhone pic. It's not your car, and if we wanted boring, run of the mill M3s like the next legal professional, we can easily have those.

I was just stating a personal opinion. It's hard to have that much CF in any car, whether it's real, fake or whatever. The point is, I have an opinion. Not knocking it, just don't like it personally. I had no idea an opinion was a crime on this forum.

Why don't you all talk shit to the other guys on here that have said they didn't like it. Don't get offended from an opinion. There are plenty of them out there, and you take them all the same: respect all and do your thing like a chicken wing.

But it's okay, I'm free to beat on.

it would look better if it matched... that is what makes it look the worst. Also, the steering wheel trim makes it too much imo

This is a real BMW. Doesn't mean it looks good, though. Again, opinions. There isn't anything wrong with them.

And you very well may think my BMW sucks. That's your opinion, and it really wouldn't bother me. I don't need to justify my purchases to you. Just like you don't need to justify yourself or anything in your car to me.

Opinions. Get over 'em.

Opinions are not a crime. I personally can care less about what people think of my car, I mean, it's smurf blue for god's sake! I was just providing a pic answer to the OPs request. My next mod is to either get LSB interior dash trim or BMW perf cf trim. I need to get rid of the cf leather, as that clashes most. and I will most likely get rid of the steering wheel trim and give to my friend for Christmas.

LSB is a sexy-ass color, though. Ain't nothin' wrong with that choice. The CF leather trim is the best, to me. It's unique without being too flashy. I love CF, but I think it's too much inside the car, in most cases.

I do like the idea of body colored interior panels, though. Now that's unique for an LSB M3 to have! It might not look so hot, though...

That interior just has too much going on and nothing matches. He has carbon leather trim with CF console, alcantara e-brake boot and leather shift boot, maybe its not finished but he needs BMW Performance CF trim and alcantara shift boot with white Motorsport cross stitching and get the e-brake boot cross stitched too match the steering wheel and shift boot. Also it looks like the steering wheel is dry CF? if so that should be "wet" CF to match the other CF parts in there...IMO

The BMW Performance CF is almost here, it has been on order for a bit. I am waiting to decide which steering wheel I will have to replace the shift knob leather with alcantara and matching stitch. The steering wheel matches the center console. They don't match perfectly with the doors, but will match the BMW CF as it was used as a model. Pics will follow...plus I have the leahter center console coming and that will contrast nicely with the CF console as opposed to the stock leather one matching the extended leather. We'll see how it turns out, and if it sucks, nothing is permanent!

I did the same from those guys. Evan has been extremely responsive and helpful.

I also ordered some OEM Performance CF trim. Hoping it matches the pieces from Flux Autosport as well as I think it will (fingers crossed).

I'll post up some pix assuming it all comes together as planned under a new thread.
