Sooooo decided on wrapping parts of my interior trim as I wasn't a huge fan of the standard silver parts. It was a toss up between black or carbon fibre, however went for alcantara as seen by the MWerks 135i a while back. This included the trim surrounding the CC unit which I really liked!

So got had an afternoon of gutting the interior and sorting all my tools out, and it wasn't as bad as I expected- took around 30 mins to completely take the trim out including the centre console.

Began wrapping yesterday and it isn't the most forgiving to work with, having no stretch compared to vinyl.
Image
Did involve having to drive to work with no interior, but tonight I've finally finished and I'm happy with the results!
Image
Considering this is my first time wrapping anything, I'm rather pleased. It's not perfect by any means, but I'm happy
It's pitch black so I can't get any decent pictures, I'll try tomorrow and see how they turn out!

Used up the alcantara, think i'll be taking off a few bits to balance out the interior.

A little has changed since the last post, kinda tidied up the interior as well as getting a set of coilovers to sort that ride height out. Image
After the coilovers and the longest weekend of my life

Keep changing my plans at the moment, but I think I'm set on leaving my 261s as they are and saving for some new wheels. I'm getting kinda bored of the OEM look!
BBS LM or similar, but want to go with something different such as Roti KPS or even some BLQ. We'll see??!!
