It stands out too much I think. Other than that the stitching on the wheel looks good.

I like the originality, but doesn't quite flow IMO. Need more red inside.

I like it, just the trim needs the dip in it the M3 has. With the level of aggressiveness the actual wheel has, it sucks the trims makes it seem a little more dull because the shape

But I think matching trim would look awesome

change your roundel with red instead of blue, the blue is just not agreeing with all the red

You want to add color, but not too much. You also don't want to do too little or shapes or locations that look out of place. It's a fine line. I'll dig up some pics of the parts of the interior I painted in my Rabbit to give you an idea.

Normally I would flame you, but I think you might have something here. I don't think the pictures give it justice. I bet it looks good in person. When I saw that I thought of a couple Porsches that I have seen with the interior painted in the exterior paint.

this would be great... i toyed with the idea of painting the interior trims all in body color. this was my little test piece before i take the plunge but it seems like its not that popular.

Hi Montreal Red,

If you have itchy hands, try the CF Wrap. PM me if you are interested, I'll hook you up just to stop you from painting it. J/K =)

I think the Matte Titanium Carbon Fiber Fabric will be awesome with your interior.
