Thumbs up My small interior project - pics

As much as I love my grey interior it seemed a bit too plain, The only thing that was adding to it was the wood trim and the black dashboard. I decided to see what it woudl look like if I transformed the interior and tried to achieve a clean two-tone look, black and grey. I got a set of four door panels (black) off eBay for $60! took mine off, took the grey inserts off and applied them onto the black panels. Kept the grey speaker cover. Put them back on, and below is the final results. What do you think?

Door before:



Door after:



(BTW I also swapped the steering wheel)

Looks nice, I would get the black wood trim or maybe the ZHP black or almn. cube trim. To me the burrels(sp?) in the wood mess up the smooth lines of the door panels. Maybe add the black armrest too.

I actually have a silver trim, which I think I will put back on. Thanks for the advice. Before burlwood looked good with grey, but now I see your point. I just need to get a new shift knob to match it all.

I'm thinking about the armrest too. Not sure if I want to do it entirely black. Was thinking of swapping the grey bottom part and just keep the grey leather piece.

Thoughts?

Have you heard of or tried with Bavarian Auto Recycling. Not sure where you are located, they are in Rancho Cordova, CA. They have loads of parts for almost every BMW.
