at first I thoguht: Tacky..tacky...tacky...tacky..

Then I got to the picture with the door open. If the trim matches the door, your OK in my book. First picture is horrible though, looks way out of place when you only show that little piece.

100 Percent BAD, It would have been better if you painted to match body color. CF is played out

i meant the pattern, not the piece itself. The pattern just shouts with the picture that close. Looks pretty good though I'd have to sit in it to really see it.

Initial impression: not so good. It might have a shot if the 2 reds matched (CF and MR) but I'm not feelin it.

If you like it though, that's all that really matters.

sorry dude, too much.
don't sell your c/f trim and put them back on.

or is that real C/F with transparent red vinyl over? then take the vinyl off. will be so much nicer.

If you're going to do something pretty different and against the norm go all the way and make it unique else you look like a chump
Good job with this, I'm a fan

I like the trims on the side. Makes a nice accent. On the dash, it's a little too much for me.

But, do what you like best. Only your opinion really matters.

Did you use flash? I think maybe its the flash thats making the red CF pop out too much. I could believe that it looks much better in person and without flash. Its always good to try and be different and pull it off. Props to a fellow Melbourne Red owner. Check out what I did when I had my E46 M3.
