Wink two tone interior or black interior

I have a jet black facelift sedan with smoked corners, sides and red/smoked/red tails.

i have black:
alcantara seats
trim
bmw alcantara knob
alcantara shift/e brake boot
zhp alcantara wheel
center console with leather armrest
dead pedal
floor mats

currently have black and tan door panels.

rest of my interior is tan

now my question is keep the two tone that i have now and add a black carpet

or

buy black and cloth door panels and convert my whole interior black with a grey headliner and pillars.

looking for advice since im deadlocked on the decision.

thanks

If you have tan carpet and other black trims in the car for sure switch the carpet(if you mean the actual carpet not floor mats) i was doing the two tone and switched my grey carpet to black and it made a huge difference/but by your list its hard to tell what you have /it says i have blk alcantara etc.etc. then it says down at the bottom i have two tone doors everything else is tan?? look in my garage for my interior switchover if you want but you really have to go all the way with trims etc.to make it look complete..

I'm not a fan of tan or any light colored interior.
