Not sure about the key slot or headlight switch. But the shift boot is nice and the ebrake boot would go well with it.
I'd wrap the wood trim.

Yea I would try to get the carbon leather trim in there. If that isn't possible, those matte carbon vinyls sure look awfully similar to the OEM carbon leather.

As far as the alcantara, what color was the trim underneath? To me there is too much going on, brown wood, blacks, beige and all isn't meshing quite as well right now.

It has potential, and I like where you're going with it, but honestly the wood trim (not my favorite, as I think it has no place in the M3) and the lighter tan color (also not a fan of light color interiors) throw it off. I wouldn't have wrapped the steering wheel trim. Maybe go all out and wrap the tan and the wood grain? Alcantara is sexy, but it has to be done right. It's tricky in your situation because you have a very light interior and it clashes with the alcantara.

you certainly get an A for effort.

Oh no worries, not offended at all. I think i am going to wrap the wood in alcantara and see how it looks. it may change the whole look for the better. This whole thing started off because my steering wheel trim was peeling and i was like....... i have a bunch of left over material from my ol' zhp so oh what the hell, why not. and this is where I ended up haha.

I think if you removed where you currently have alcantara (assuming those parts are bamboo underneath) and then wrap the wood trim in alcantara it would look a lot better.

I actually like the stock wood + beige interior
Not every "sports" car has to be filled with CF and alacantara all over the interior.
but in this case, I'd rather keep everything stock if you are sticking to beige interior.
brown suede would look sick on this lol

All the wrapped pieces are just black underneath lol. Like I said I was bored... out of my mind haha. I am going to leave them as is and wrap all the wood grain and see how it looks. we shall see stage 2!

Please sell me that sycamore wood trim instead of wrapping it. I even have some trim pieces that I can trade you. PM me if you're interested.
