Carbon Wrapped Centre Console - FINALLY!

As some of you know, I recently found a great match to the OEM Carbon Leather. I had a friend of mine who is a BMW tech take apart my centre console, both front and rear (around the rear vents). I took the pieces to my upholstery guy, and 3 days later

Just a teaser pic until I install it hopefully tomorrow afternoon.

The match is nearly perfect, and my guy told me if anyone wants to have it done. As long as you take out the pieces, he will wrap them. He does incredible work, I will post more pics to show the detail and workmanship.

good job!
now if you have an ipod
have him wrap the chrome back of it
that would look kick ass
esp if its a black one
come to think of it
do you think he could do it for mine?

Thanks!

yes it does, he didnt wrap over the original leather, he removed it completely, including on the door. So he wrapped it exactly as it was. Door opens without flaw!

Can't wait to see the final pics. I might want to do this. Can you provide close-ups of the BMW CF trim and the matching trim that you found? Thanks!
