Opinion dyeing interior, which color?

Hello fellow fanatics! I have had my M for a couple of months now and absolutely love it! It's the tiag/metallic silver with IR interior! I have found a whole grey interior locally for only $200 and am deciding to pick it up. I am really hooked on the kiwi and cinnamon and cannot decide between the two. What do you guys think ? I may later down the road paint the car AW, but with current MS which would look the best, in your opinions? Thanks a lot for the feedback in advance!

Since you already have the most desireable interior anyways you should do something out of the ordinary with the new one. If you like the Kiwi go for it, I personally think that nothing looks better then Imola red for the silver exterior.

Opinion dyeing interior, which color?

I'm doing cinnamon to my car this summer! I would love to do kiwi but it doesn't work well with the gray green exterior.

It can turn out really well if you are willing to put work into it and be without your car for a month.

Re: Opinion dyeing interior, which color?

I can drive without seats. I'll just use a bucket.
















(Kidding) I will probably do this when it warms up

It's actually quite an interesting feeling to sit in your car without seats.

On my e36 318is I had the interior redone and rode without door panels or pillars for a few weeks. It was ruff before....

Cinnamon, without a shadow of doubt

Especially with TiAg, but also with AW, it would look amazing

I don't blame you for picking it up for $200, but I can't think of anything better for Tiag than imola interior. Flip the interior for mod money

TiAg on Kiwi would look horrible. Cinnamon would look great - however Imola looks great as well and you already have it.

I just noticed a post with LSB leather; silver interior trim. I think it looks great, especially with TiAg paint.
