Ok., I get it!

The colors may not be to everyone's liking.

I guess, if you've not nothing better to do, just hate!?!

It's an "Individual Manufaktur" build. All the updates were done with all OE materials - Leather and Thread -
sourced directly from them ("Individual"/"BMW Performance") and/or their vendors.

The "wood" was just too shiny! So, I replaced it with "Open Pore" C.F. and had the stitching mimic the
original pattern on the original leather placed on the instrument panel trim.

As with the paint ("Sakhir Orange"), different lighting brings out different tonalities of the interior.


Cheers!

It was OE to the MY of the car, although it was never actually on the car, until now.

The issue here, was getting it hooked up (behind the tuner) correctly so it would work (charge) properly.

Cheers!

I don’t think people are trying to hate on your creation man it’s just some things are pleasing to the eye and some are not. In this case I’d say the overwhelming majority consider those choices to go poor with this car.

Not having the same taste in color scheme ≠ hating. At the end of the day, who cares what some internet strangers think, it is your car.

Yeah I don't think you can improve the interior of this car much and that's tacky in my opinion, makes it look cheaper. Were you going for a Ferrari type interior?

No.

It's a Sakhir Orange convertible and I originally wanted just a "Champagne" interior, but that was too light
and too bright on its own. Then, I came across the availability of "Contrast Stitching" so, I eventually
came to choose a two tone combination.

It was finally between, "Caramel", "Saddle" or "Amaro". I was looking for as close to a baseball glove - like
brown as possible, to pair up with the "Champagne".
