AutoTecknic interior trim reviews/opinions

Ok, so I have had my car for a little over a month and am about to start some cosmetic mods. First on my list is to get a set of the CF interior trim before everyone stops making it. I had reached out to Karbonius but they say they are unlikely to make any more due to a shortage of cores. Beyond them I don't see anyone else making these except for AutoTecknic, and while the reviews I have read have been old their stuff seems to be a little hit or miss fitment wise. Since this may be my only option I would like to hear from the community prior to dropping that kind of coin. So please let me know what you think! Did it fit properly, quality of the carbon, surface finish quality, that kind of thing.

I am also looking at mirror covers and splitters, but looks like lots of people making those right now, so that will be a concern for another day.

Thanks all!!
Todd

So I am guessing a: I have posted this in the wrong section, or b: No one has ever purchased this kit, or perhaps c: No one cares.

Guess I will have to buy it and see how it goes. Hope they have a good return policy....

Thanks, yes I had read that one as well and the fitment issues mentioned there are troubling considering the cost. I was hoping to gather a bit more data to see if this was a consistent problem with all of AutoTecknic's trim bits or if that case was just an outlier. Perhaps I should just bide my time till a M Performance set comes up for sale, though who know when or if that will happen.
Thanks again!

Well, I get that, but for this car I wanted to go with the real thing. That is likely going to be the only interior cosmetic mod I do. Maybe red Start/M buttons but that is about it. Thanks

Ironically, the most beautiful and best fitting CF Trim I ever purchased I got through ebay from China. This was on my old E46.

I do have full carbon trim on my e92 now and while it's not as good, the price was right. Its supposedly made right here in the USA, but who knows but it took almost 3 months to get it. The lay the carbon over OEM pieces tho.

Send me PM. I think they are still making them. The company changed names a few times but I have them on Instagram. I'll connect you if you want.
