**Don Nguyen | 3M Dinoc Matte Carbon Fiber - Wrapped Interior Trim**

I get a lot of requests for pictures of interiors, so here was a BMW E90 335 sedan that I wrapped over the factory wood interior with the 3M dinoc matte carbon fiber vinyl finish. I donít typically get a chance to take pictures of the installed/finish product in the car, because most peopleís interiors that I do are non-local and they just ship me their interior pieces for me to wrap.

However, the owner of this car was local to me in Anaheim Hills/Orange County and came by to have me remove his interior trim pieces and also wrap them. Overall the results turned out fantastic and the owner of this car was extremely happy with the results. The cool thing about the dinoc finish is that it has a good feel and texture to it as well, so it doesnít make the wrapped pieces feel cheap or weird in any way.

looks great except you wrapped the center console with the pattern going the wrong direction. You should wrap the shifter trim in it as well to finish it off. Ive wrapped my e90 with brushed steel metallic and it turned out nice.

The two pieces were far enough from each other that it was a non-issue with the owner of the car and it saved him money on materials cost, so that was the direction we went with it. If the two pieces were right next to each other or touching, then we totally would have gone with same pattern/direction for better flow.

Good eye though.

Varies from car to car, cause each car has a different amount of pieces that needs to be covered. Even a E90 to an E92 is already different.

PM me with more details about your car and I can get you a quote.

Majority of my interior wraps are for people who are not local to me and ship me their trim pieces to have wrapped.
