    What colour your car? There is a set of piano black inlay for sale on eBay. I'd wrap them, a few members have wrapped them in a carbon fibre look wrap. Do a search looks quite good.

    Edit: meant colour not car

    i wrapped my piano black trims in carbon they look 10000% better i think but if you cant do it yourself then there is companys out there who do it but beware they might charge alot to do it

    I'm moving over to alum myself, the black looks not too bad but slightly cheap looking & can get marked easily.

    i think you could get away with Alu in a beige interior, but not a grey one.

    i'd probably swap the light interior out before i considered the trims tbh.

    I wrapped mine, but have a friend who does wrapping for a living so had plenty of guidance to get it perfect! Feels a lot nicer than spraying IMO.

    you should really use the primer when using 3M DiNoc as its not suitable for vehicle wrapping, as it can shrink back :)
