Hi people,

After I get back from Vegas I'm planning on swapping the interior out on my 330d I mean the current swade type ones are v comfy but don't look very nice hence swapping them but Im not sure what colour to go for the car is topaz blue , I always wanted red leather before but that was on my black 46 not sure how it would look on blue. Any suggestions on color? (if it comes to it I have some black half leather ones in the one I'm selling so could swap Thoose)

:)

Is this easy enough to do I saw some tan ones on a thread somewhere they looked great. I'm good at spraying and such just never tried anything like this before, I'll have a look for the thread

That was Sive who recently coloured his tan brown from black. Pretty decent result by all accounts.

I remember I had this on my old e36

I had grey and wanted black

then I found a guy who had black and wanted grey.

 

he had his own bodyshop

so seats/carpet/dash/doorcards/pillar trims/horseshoe flap (he even painted it my cars colour)

I drove to him,all his car was stripped,then he stripped my car and rebuilt it with his black interior.

done it all in 1 day,and I drove back with my black interior fitted.

 

so everythings possible

Good choice try champane, cinnamon (like DJ Syxx ) or Saddle brown ( thats what i got.) or Tan 

 

That was Sive who recently coloured his tan brown from black. Pretty decent result by all accounts.

 

Yeap thats me  :thumbup: . Its all about the prep mate, if you want any pics inbox me and i will send some over.

 

Get some grey ones, then dye them whatever colour you want :thumbsup:

I really liked the beige interior in my car, and so did everyone who sat in it.

Mind your sick, its not nice having to swallow it back because you have nowhere to spit it :lol:

Everything I post is my opinion. If I don't know that you disagree, I won't argue with you :)

I have beige & black contrasting interior & think it works quite well. You can always due yours topaz blue so it matches the exterior! You might think that's abit much though. But topaz blue dye is available if you need it :)
