G30 Interior trim in Carbon Fibre

Anyone had their interior (Silver) trims done in real carbon fibre

I mean real carbon fibre laminated in the trims not vinyl wrap

If Yes please share pics of modded interiors

I know that r33_RGSport had something in the works about 6 months ago when I was interested.

I saw a pic on their G30 and it looked pretty good. Not sure if they are still in the process or even making it.

The last time he posted on this the fitment wasn't consistent. Any update on this r33_RGSport ?

It require custom work to get it fitted properly.
So, with that saying, unless you are up to it, I don't want to offer it.

It is a stick on overlay.
The iDrive button hole opening are not the same car to car.
It can be slightly off. So you will need to manually trim it using dremel for perfect fitment.

How hard is that laminating process? What you are doing looks really slick.
