Kiwi Interior Pics

Thought I'd throw up some pics of my current interior setup before I swap it out for OE CSL. Let me know what you guys think.










If anyone else has Kiwi out there let's see what you got!

Eew, some colors are rare for a reason. Glad to see you sourced a new interior.

I liked it a lot actually, but definitely not for everyone! Thanks though

Looks great man! Carbon Black on Kiwi is a killer combo. Also that wood trim is quite rare. Is your car bmw individual?

Thanks mate.

Not that I'm aware of. It has the normal "M3" door sills, and a VIN search didn't say it was individual.

To be honest, I don't like my wood trim. I'd much rather the gloss wood trim, carbon trim or brushed aluminium.

I'll most likely wrap it sometime soon

I thought kiwi was an individual option? My car's individual and it has normal sills. What's the last 7 of your VIN?

Yeah that's kind of how I feel about it. It's rare, but definitely looks a bit odd in an ///M car. I love my brushed aluminum, swapped out my titan shadow for it.

My car originally came with grey interior, but I believe kiwi was available in other parts of the word (Australia, and Europe) as an option without individual.

My thoughts exactly. I don't think I'd want it, but it is interesting.

Kiwi Nappa interior was a standard production color 09/2000 through 08/2006.

US Individual cars didn't get Indiv sills, but other parts of the world did.

Interesting. I always assumed it was an individual option. It's a neat color, but I wouldn't personally want it. I guess that sentiment is why you rarely see it.

Thought I'd throw up another pic since I won't have my kiwi much longer.
