Forged carbon interior

Hello everyone,

at the moment I am working on a development of a forged carbon interior for G30. I was looking around the web but could not find this option anywhere so
decided to make one myself. Thing that interests me is - would there be anyone interested in getting one?

EDIT:

part in picture is a working progress - finished result will have a much more visible and even carbon texture

It's not literally forged 😀 just a type of carbon fiber

I've attached pictures of a finished panel to this reply. I am really hapy on how it turned out

Looks really nice! I like the dark gray interior look already so I may be partial.

The new BMW X5 G05, as expected, handles better, is sharper, the engine response is noticeably better, the 8-speed transmission is perfectly tuned with no lag, no hang-up at speed, no jerking in traffic (Mercedes people know what I mean). Review is just as good, dimensions inside and out are about the same. Took it in the test without air, the Bavarians have obviously tried their best with the suspension, it feels superior to the new GLE without air. I have pneumatic - very comfortable, took MB too much roll, I drive mainly in Moscow - adaptive mode. The engine is much improved from previous models - quiet and supple, at the same time it has a pleasant sound when accelerating, on diesel! The exterior is clear, but I liked the BMW more on the interior as well - more stylish. The dashboard and monitors are liked more (it is good that they are conditionally separated and the monitor is directed towards the driver - BMW is for a driver). Good noise, double windows, projection, 4-5 USB ports in the cabin (1 regular), interface is very tricky and works smoothly (updated to 2019), better maps, traffic jams, multimedia, carplay - all OK. Split tailgate (to load luggage the shelf slides, the car "squats").
