Pictures of CR interior cars with a wrap?

Im very curious to see if there are any pictures out there of anyone that has wrapped their car a non-conventional color when having the Coral Red Leather interior.

My car is AW/CR and id like to try a wrap out, but cant for the life of me think of what color I would want.

Any ideas or pictures would be greatly appreciated!

I tought about this too, and have the same combo.

I think only colors would work and worth doing would be matte white, black or matte black and matte grey, like the vivid racing 135i they had some time ago.

I alwas liked the laguna seca blue in the e46 M3, but it would look awful i a car with CR interior

Same situation.. was thinking of a bright color but the coral red might clash!! But I don't want another dark color since I have BSM.

Im glad im not the only one having this "issue", lol.

I would really like to go with a color that stands out, but the interior seems like it would clash with just about anything i can think of except white, grey or black.

I absolutely LOVE my interior, dont get me wrong. Just hoping there is some even ground i can find with the exterior.

Since I am in the same situation as many of you. I would PERSONALLY do any of the following colors as long as they were the correct shade. Obvioulsy black,white,silver and gray and any shade or form of those. I think some shades of blue would look fine, including Laguna Seca. I would even dare to do yellow and fire orange. I really want to do army green as well

proof army green and red look good together IMO and it doesnt look like xmas.


everyone says this looks like Ronald Mcdonald but with the right shade of yellow and black accents this looks sporty to me!

Hulkamaniacs or Superman....hmmmm, lol.

jk.

Yeah i do actually kind of like the yellow, with the right shade and maybe in a matte or pearlescent matte could look pretty good.

This might just end up being a trial and error thing. Maybe we can get some people to try around the door on the side with the door open in a few different colors just to see how they contrast with the CR, lol.

Still searching for a combo that works just right.

Wonder if there is the perfect shade of flat grey or charcoal that would look just right....

The F82 (excluding the 1M) is not something you will want in extraordinary color ways. It will just look plain stupid. I would go as far as matte (fill in your favor color), anything beyond that say orange or Porsche green is hideous

the best thing to do is to get a bunch of your top choices, and put a peice of the vinyl on different parts of the car so you can see how it would look.

then drive around for a few days, get to see the car in different lights, time of day, angles, etc - and you should be able to narrow it down.

i will admit that the superman combo is not a top choice for me, but if i were you, i would for sure give matte orange or tangerine a try - it may compliment the CR interior really well!
