I didn't remove the trim.
It was really easy to do it .
The front console was the hardest to do.
Also I have never done something like this so I'm sure everyone with a little bit of skill can do it .

Thank you guys .
I'm not sure if I will keep the trim wrapped in carbon fiber yet.
The only reason I did this was to see how the g30 will look like with carbon trim .
I think there is no photos available and no one is selling the real carbon trim for g30.

I'm not usually a fan of CF wrap either, but that is a great job! It suits the car very much, especially with the red ambient light setting.

Iím soooo tempted to try this when I take delivery of mine in 10 weeks! Looks great

One question Drtjxtz what trim did you place the wrap on? I have the rhombicle trim and a little concerned it wonít be smooth enough
