Yup just the front seats... I'll take my time on it... The in-laws are coming to visit so I cannot work on the car while they are with us because we need to entertain them... I plan to put the grey seats in for now while they are here... Might be also a good time to drive the car to get the fluids moving and to check if everything in the dash works...

Just finished cleaning my interior with Meguiars interior detailer... I took some photos but the interior cleaner made it a little shiny. Once the cleaner dries out and gets absorbed, it should go back to matte finish... I installed my grey front seats to be able to drive the car and see if there was anything else that we forgot to connect... So far so good... All the controls, dash lights and ac vents are working... Only problem I had was the sport button mode. I tried pressing it and I just did not feel the pedal sensitivity that it normally gives. The light for it turns on so its not the fuse or connection. I even texted m3freak86 (Chris) and Josh about it and also tried to contact EVOLVE... Finally I got the answer from EVOLVE... The battery of the car was disconnected for 2 weeks to avoid the airbags blowing up on me. Sal at EVOLVE told me to give the car to adapt again since the adaptations get reset if you unhook your battery for that long... So for all of you guys that have the EVOLVE Tune, if you do plan in storing your car over winter, get a trickle charger. I have a Trickle Charger but like what I said, had to disconnect the battery because of the airbag... So all is well!!! Right now, the car looks funny because of the grey seats up front but it felt good to drive the car yesterday and today and hear it! Damn I hate driving my other car!!! LOL!

DETAILED PHOTOS FOR BRANDON... (He asked me to take some to see the stitching/pipings)








REAR SEATS ( Still need to install the middle part)




HOW THE CAR SITS AS OF NOW...

Did you read my post? I said I put the grey seats for now to be able to drive the car and check if all the dash controls are working. I have to put the project on hold since my in-laws are here for about a week.

thanks! Do some more researching... I tried to be as detailed as possible in this thread. Hopefully that helps you out. The most important thing that I will tell you is do not rush it. Take your time doing this project.

Updates: I was bothered by the A pillars having that covering at the bottom part starting to peel off so I took the covering out and tried to re-wrap them with some felt fabric that I got from Joannes fabrics. It came out good but as I was installing the A pillars back in, they would not fit right because they were thicker now compared to OEM. I got frustrated and just took them out and threw them away. LOL! I just ordered a new set of OEM A pillars and their covers in Tulley BMW and will be picking them up today. I also placed an order with COBY WHEEL for a Black Alcantara Tri-stitch Steering wheel and a shift boot that will match it. I just wanted the steering wheel to be plain black alcantara with no time attack stripe since to just make it clean and simple. I will take some photos when the pieces get here.

THIS IS COBY WHEELS' PHOTO... ( I hope Mike does not mind me posting it)
This is what I exactly ordered...

Thanks... It's the exact Imola Red color from Leatherique. Color in the photos are sometimes cinnamin or orangy because of lighting. But in reality, its more of a deep red color..

Its held up pretty good. I wiped it, sat on it and tried scratching it but so far so good. The Rit Dye was purchased from WALMART.

So i say, the rit dye would also work on headliner and the pillars right?? Also i am not sure about DubliColor but i have heard great things about ColorBond. I was gonna do the interior color change anyway. Now that i see how yours came out.... i better f ing start it soon! ...and also mannnn your car sounds like a god damn racing car! I love your car and i appreciate a man like you who takes care of his car and does tasteful mods. Props to you man!!

Thanks man! If you put too much of the rit dye, it will make your headliner rough... I suggest that you look at some other dye options...
