Looks pretty average. You can do way better.

Brushed steel wraps look pretty good.

Agreed on the brushed steel wrap. Black brushed steel would look the best imo.

Just buy factory brushed alloy trim, looks more sporty than all the other options bar carbon fibre.

Keep an eye on gumtree/ebay etc for a decent second hand set of trims. You should be able to pick up a set for a few hundred if you're patient.

Get it properly wrapped by someone.
I had carbon wrap. Looked just like e92 guys have, very close to OEM.

I'm sure you can get like brushed alum finish etc

I had it carbon wrapped but I took it off because it looked cheap and put this stuff on. Bit tomorrow I'm going to take it all off again and return it to the brushed aluminum

^^^ thats only the dash set, does not include the door trims, well priced tho, Jimmy your other option is getting your existing trim professionally painted , it will be identical to oem
