As others have said, the seats look great but the color in all of the photos, even the video, look desaturated to the point where it almost looks cinnamon. White balance off maybe?

Read this whole thing. Very tempting to do. Excellent work.

Hello,

May I ask how you got these separated? Last time I had my trim a part I couldn't figure it out but I was rushing and I had no other ride to work the next day.

Any tips, I haven't found much online. It's all about just the door handles and such.

Thank you in advance!

Very nice project here man. I was wondering, how did they dye hold up? I am hoping that sometime down the road I can do the same thing to my Non-M

Sorry for replying late. I've been busy lately but I just recently took some photos of my interior last week. Still holding up well.




And some eye candy!

You will just have to pry them open. You
Might break a few clips. Just be careful. It's really hard to separate them.

Thank you for the reply!

I'll attempt it again, I really want to finish my wrap.

New Question- I'm contemplating swapping my interior for some alcantara and getting some Recaros. Is it difficult to make the transition to recaros as far as electronics and mounting? I've never done anything like it so I'm trying to find out the level of difficulty I'd be getting into.

Not too hard. It's plug and play...
