Awesome guys!!!
I don't really do anything special to the trim. Mine just seems to have a nicer, more visible grain than most. I use Meguiars interior detailer and Meguiars supreme shine protectant with 3M scotchguard. You should see my dash when it's recently been details, just enough shine, but not too much.

Nice seats. I would love to swap out my leather interior for cloth/alcantera. I don't think it would be too difficult either, just costly.

That's either hit or miss for me. Could look awful. Could make a mess of your pants.

I assisted another fanatic with wrapping his trim this past weekend and it turned out fantastic.

Yea that's what i did, the 3M carbon wrap. Much better than the cracked up original finish, getting old none the less.

What brand floor mats are these? They don't look like Weathertech, but I could be wrong. Not finding them with a Google images or shopping search. I want 'em!
I don't know the brand, I bought them like 3 years ago at pep boys

Nothing fancy. Just M pedals and red gauge needles. Otherwise, stock, just the way I like it
