Alpine White painted trim pics

Did anyone paint their interior trim alpine if so any pics? I'd love to see how it would look with black interior and obviously alpine white exterior

The pics of the AW with fox red extended is my car, I bought the trim from IND and I'm having some other interior trim pieces painted to match soon. The AW trim with black leather looks good it breaks up the interior.

As quality as the IND pieces look...that price just isn't justifiable to me. Way to go is to buy some used wood or shadow trim...then have a body shop paint and clear them. $150 bucks tops to paint those...and that would be a lot.

A relatively inexpensive experiment. I'm on the fence about it. Porsche pulls it off all day long in the 911...so why not? I think it's just b/c we're not used to seeing it.

That was my plan actually to do that!

When i saw the trims in white i was like WOW that shit just looks so nice. but then saw it in person and i was like OH, ammmm thats weird and awkward.

i guess having bright trim makes the car looks cheap this also depends on the color of your interior. and to be honest the exterior color doesnt really matter on what color even having to match that color with your trim still looks and makes the car looks cheap.

I say do it piano black. the only thing i would consider on doing is

Piano Black
Leather Carbon
Dry Carbon
Brushed Aluminum

Yea, that's my thing. It can look like cheap plastic if you do it the wrong way or get it a weird color. I think the Piano Black is nice though, but that's the only exception to the rule I think. I mean it's all a matter of personal preference though.
