2 things about this M5 that I could not stand… The woodgrain trim and the steering wheel was a little beat up from normal wear and tear. So we made some moves to get it dialed in. At first I was thinking of painting the trim flat black and doing a VividRacing logo all over print to match the wrap we will be doing on the exterior. But that would be a little much on the eyes everyday! So we went with the ole carbon fiber route which always looks classy and stylish. First we hooked up with our partners at DCT Motorsports who do custom steering wheels off of cores. This is the same company that we worked with to do our Porsche 997TT Steering Wheel. It features a semi flat bottom with carbon fiber top, carbon fiber lower grips, and at 9 and 3 hand positions extra grip.
After we intalled the steering wheel, we removed all the wood trim that came with the car. We added a full replacement kit, not overlays, which feature a high gloss carbon fiber finish. It replaced all 4 door pulls, dashboard trim, and the shifter center console trim. The complete carbon upgrade has definitely transformed the inside of the car from an old man machine to a sporty, powerful sedan. Check out the before and after pictures below…
