They can also wrap your entire roof in carbon fiber which would be different (considering it normally reserved for M-Series vehicles).

Notice how the gear shifter which is real OEM (normally sells for $250, but I found it on the web from an eager Bimmer dealer and only paid $187.99 delivered) matches the i-Drive panel. This is a great indication that the stuff used is the real deal. The pics were also taken at night in my garage. The contrast of the brushed aluminum is more striking in daylight.
I really like the way the carbon contrasts with the tan interior, in all honestly its really a unique look, I don't think BMW lets you get carbon trim with tan interior regardless

Forget Me Now Looks pretty good in the photos. how is it in real life? Is the carbon fiber actually carbon fiber, or is it just made to look like carbon fiber? Was it expensive?

Carbon Fiber Interior Wrap...

While this may not be for everyone, I was not a big fan of the OEM carbon fiber trim parts mainly due to the "M Performance" suede piece and the lack of a contrast so I sought out something different. I found a local company which wraps autos and trim parts. Check out the pics... *There are no cracks on the vents, it's just the strobe bouncing/reflecting off of the plastic.
