Question:

I have a friend who runs a shop here in Brisbane, Australia which chromes all sorts of things - plastic, metal, clay(!), wood(!).

Anyway, have a 2001 320ci in dakar yellow with black leather interior - 5spd manual. It currently has the matt silver trim.

So the deal is he will chrome all of the interior trim (doors, dash, gear leaver surround, sterng wheel trim) for the cost of parts only.

He will aslso do the same for my wheels (I have posted a picture of them).

Will the chrome interior be too much, or will it look sweet?

We sell OEM trim pieces with Carbon Fiber coating (for perfect fitment) - I'd definately suggest that over Chrome, which will be an eyesore in the sun...

I was trying to think if I personally would like it and to be honest, I'm not sure. On average your typical Bimmer owner is conservative and likes to have his ride remain close to stock, I'm thinking re-sale value latter on.

I notice the post above advertising the carbon fibre pieces, I'm not sure I like those. I like the matte silver trim, I like the wood trim, particularly in the lighter woods available. I have myrtle wood in my five and I think the same trim as yours in my three.
