What can i do to my interior?

While i do love my Bimmer, the one thing that bothers me a little bit is the interior... grey non sport speats with wood trim. I was wondering if anyone had any fairly cheap ideas to make my interior nicer. Thanks

M3 seats and steering wheel. Wrap the trim yourself.

You're still about 3000k off.


To answer your original question: gauge rings.

This.

Your interior is bizzarre... you have what appears to be a ZHP cluster, a sport steering wheel with M stitching on it, wood trim and standard seats...

That steering wheel is not right. As far as I know, there was never a sport steering wheel offered with tri-color stitching like that. Also, you totally jumped the gun, why would you buy that stupid steering wheel without upgrading your seats first? Do it right.

Plus, what the hell is up with your window switches? Red? WTF?
