Interior trim color/wrap options

Okay, I am thinking of changing my interior trim from light walnut to something metallic with a vinyl wrap. I was thinking of a dark carbon fiber, dark brushed aluminum or brushed steel. What do you guys think? Here is the interior now.



Thanks for the help/thoughts.

Please do anything but not carbon. You can still see that it is not real which makes it look cheap...

Unless you get it wrapped professionally in real carbon fiber.

I don't think carbon fiber will look bad at all, but something dark for sure, seeing the interior is so light

Talking Updated interior trim with 3M Brushed Steel vinyl.

I decided to try vinyl wrapping the trim myself. I think the results are pretty good.

Nice job! Huge improvement. I would have gone with a different color to give more contrast to your gray interior.

Thanks I think the flash from the camera washes it out a bit. I'll get a picture with natural light.

A better picture. I was going for a nice transition between the light grey leather and black dash.

Macflyer516 - that really looks so much better! I really like the way the silver trim on the AT shifter and steering wheel pull all the accents together.

way better than the stock trim. I'd love to see it in some contrasting color. in silver it just gets to be a bit... homogenous

Bought the 3m vinyl through Amazon. It was the 12inch by 5 ft size. I used about 1/3 of the roll.

Is it just smooth silver or is it a carbon look silver?

Thanks for the link, so would 1' x 3' be enough (I'm not cheap, just a huge difference in shipping cost to Canada) ??

Thanks
