First minor modification ;)

14 posts in this topic

Well, I've had my 318d Sport Plus Touring nearly 4 weeks now and have been getting twitchy.

The one thing that I didn't like about the cabin was the big swathe of matte black plastic that the cupholders came out of.

So, I pulled it off (literally) and wrapped it in 3M Di-Noc carbon vinyl. I'm planning to do the steering wheel trim next and then decide whether I like it or not.

I'm sure it will divide opinions but for now I like it, and it's only 5 mins to put it back to original if I don't!

Otherwise known as "Red Robin" syndrome- please see a doctor they might be able to recommend a group to help you.

Looks alright that, I thought for a moment it would look better if it matched the silver trim, but actually, I'm not sure.

Thanks, I really like it so the headlight surround got the same treatment.

Will do the steering wheel insert and then leave it at that.

It's pretty straightforward to do. A mate had an E36 M3 with the walnut trim and I carbon wrapped it for him. Some of those trim bits were very tricky!

Looks great! I've got the nasty walnut trim so been wanting to do this for ages - was it hard to apply the vinyl & where did you source it?

I recon your captains hat peak could use a bit of that treatment ;)

Is this a euphemism? :0

Bought the vinyl from a local wholesale signwriting distributor but you can get it easy enough on eBay. Plenty of videos on YouTube p the application process too.
