My Ride: 330ci + stg2 Scoobie
Dimitri's custom interior project..

Hello everyone,

Here's a little background on my car..
Ever since I was about 3 or 4 I've been into cars.. As I got older I started working any possible way I can to save up for my dream car: a blue bmw 330ci. Finally when the day came that I turned 16 I had my car all lined up. Orient blue metallic 2001 bmw 330ci, 5 speed manual, 133k miles for 7,000 dollars. This was perfect! The only problem for me was the interior. Dove grey non sport seats leatherette. It brought down the whole feel of the car. So after redoing the entire cooling system, VCG, OFHG, o2 sensors, new tires, battery, and almost the entire suspension, I decided to start with mods..

I started simple with clear corners, led tails, and carbon fiber emblems. Now I just got hired at a great job where I know ill be making lots of dough. As a treat for myself I decided to redo my interior. I got an INSANELY good deal on these custom made diamond stitched suede racing seats.. they only weigh 68 lbs. i haven't installed them yet but i plan on doing it sometime soon. just waiting for the right brackets. I swapped my center console from grey to black, I got a set of metal racing pedals, I got Italian leather tri stitched shift boot and ebrake boot to match my steering wheel, I got a carbon fiber gauge surround, i did a custom design on my steering wheel trim, and hardwired a cobra radar Next I plan on getting black door card inserts, black rear seats, a new shift knob (haven't decided which one yet) and I plan on wrapping my trim in carbon fiber.

Thanks for looking! Hopefully my interior will come along great.

Nice start, congrats on getting what you wanted! Have you thought about changing the shift knob? ZHP knob would look good!

I was thinking either ZHP knob or somethin like this.. I love the way a circular knob feels when driving. It's just so smooth and seamless
