    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'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 :)
