**Don Nguyen | 3M 1080 Gloss Carbon Fiber - Wrapped Interior Trim - F10 5 Series**

Iíve had requests from people to post some more pictures of interiors that Iíve done. This is on a BMW F10 5 series sedan that originally had brushed aluminum/silver trim accents in the car. The interior trim on this car is different than most other cars, since the interior trim pieces have an edging around the trim pieces, which you can see that I left unwrapped in the pictures. Also, most interiors Iíve done in the past were with the 3M dinoc matte carbon fiber material, however, the owner of this car wanted me a finish that was slightly glossier and blacker, so we went with with the 3M 1080 gloss carbon fiber finish. In addition to his interior trim, I also did his rear bumper diffuser piece in the same material. The owner of this car was from Pomona and drove out to me in Anaheim Hills, Orange County to have the work done.

Thanks. I am not usually a fan of cf or real cf personally, but I do like the way this looked and turned out.

It holds up fine. It's actually designed to be used on exteriors of cars.

Price depends on the exact car and trim level, since every car is different.

If you're interested in materials or getting it done, feel free to PM me with more info and I can get you some pricing.

Thanks.
