Picture Request: Your GRAY Interior

So, after looking for a E46 for a while now. I think I am going to buy this TiAg 330ci, with gray interior. I've been avoiding gray/tan interiors during this whole process, but it's been too hard to find a fairly low mileage, stick, 330ci thats well packaged with another colored interior.

Anyways, let's see your gray interior!

Here's mine two toned. Not that hard to do and gives the gray interior a little pop...

That definitely looks better than all gray. How much you pay for the door panels?

The door panels were spray painted with duplicolor vinyl paint. Here's the DIY http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthr...light=two+tone

Pretty cheap and easy to do. Just avoid the speaker grill area. The plastic on it didnt react well to the paint and it still doesnt look clean after many fixes. The cupholders were sprayed as well. I sprayed the armrests with leather dye (this is an older pic), bought the floor matts off of tischer (needed new ones anyways) and a new shift knob leather. Two tone complete!

Grey and tan are actually my favorite interior colors, ha!

NorthJersey 3er, your car is beautiful. I actually have another shot of your interior saved as my modding inspiration.



Here's mine:





next step is an M3 dead pedal

Dish, thats awesome I changed some more things up inside since those pics. The previous owner only put 20k miles on in the time he owned it but he had a kung fu grip on the lower portion of the steering wheel

Yeah I noticed the wear on the stalk of the wheel, must've been one stressed out dude ha. Changes or not, it looks great. What color is that trim, titan shadow? That's the only thing I'm still debating with mine: I actually like the dark wood trim, but I think some of the metallic ones look a bit nicer.

And to the OP, I got my shift/ebrake boots from shiftstyle

You could always change your interior if you don't like it.
