    Wrapping interior inlays or not !!

    Debating on three options to do something with the interior aluminium inserts/cd fascia/gear surround after a bit of input on this subject as the stickerbomb seems to be something everyone is doing but im not to sure it will go well only the white background with the white clocks that is so my choices are :-

    1. Stickerbomb (energy drink or similar)

    2. Gloss red vinyl (to carry on the black/red theme, i do have red interior leds to)

    3. Gloss piano black (RS4 Style)

    4. Post your suggestions

    As i posted i actually thought carbon they do the red carbon effect stuff aswell !!

    If it was carbon though id want it to be original so rather than the common carbon wrap im looking at something different !!

    They do a red carbon trim? nice! I've never seen that, I thought it was just blue and grey.

    As for keeping it original then...I dunno. Bright pink?

    But seriously, i'd consider gloss black. My b6 is gloss black and I like it.

    Also imo the red would look odd with the blue stripe of the seats.

    He has the recaro interior, so full black leather and no blue bits. Lucky sod! :P

    I thought you meant there was a genuine red carbon trim that I hadn't seen, but you mean the wrap stuff. I'm not overly keen on the wrap, so for me it's still black gloss.

    You can get loads of different carbon colours.
    What about a blue carbon to match the seats?

    I had the same dilemma when I wrapped mine.
    I went Matt black in end.

    Want to change now.

    See id probably do blue to match the seats if it was a VW with blue theme lighting to match but all the dash and courtesy lights are red, yes the seats have blue stripes but theres more red to overpower the blue !!

    Heres one i found :-

    Out of the carbon red or the solid red I would go with the solid red.

    My mate's BMW compact had gloss red inserts, as did my other mate's Fiat Coupe. I thought they both looked cheap to be honest.

    That red carbon is awesome, that or gloss black. But hey, it's not my car. Burberry it,LOL

    Mine were painted by Fran in 8P, sort of gloss black with coloured flakes metallic flakes in there. Hard to capture, but is sort of OEM ish.

    The wife's TQS has slightly brighter wrap in it.......... LIGHT GREEN

    Do it your self?

    When I'm settled and sorted the garage out I'm going to attempt some proper carbon.
    Anyone got any spare trims? :P
