    Wrapping interior!


    I decided its time to get rid of the timed wood grain in the 5 series. Ive never done this kind of work before, but i feel that patience and time will allow for it to come out great. I plan on just using a heat gun, plastic card and a box cutter/blade. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

    currently the car is so blah:


    Ive got a roll of this on the way

    I've also seen a lot of people who get it painted or change the color of the actual wood. Post pictures after its done.

    Don't they make brushed aluminum trim from BMW? I know the E46 had the option. Either way it should look pretty clean. I like the wood trim myself but it the pic looks clean.

    Ryan.. Yes. You can buy OEM trim that is brushed aluminum. Its the same as the e46.. but i like the darker tint of the titanium.. also the OEM trim is $900 lol this roll was $25

    start with your flattest area first then work towards the more difficult curves. also you shouldnt need soap and water like most people think.
