Natural Brown Leather + what color to change wood trim to...

Purchased my first E46 as a daily until I find my perfect M car.

2004 330i Alpine White, Sport, Premium, painted trim and natural brown leather.

I'm not a fan of the wood trim. What other wood trim color options can I swap to or what color do you think would look good if I wrapped them? Silver? Metallic black?





Dat color

Hey, I have a Nexus 6P also, awesome phone!

Hosting your files on imgur, you might want to add an 'h' after the file name, to bring the original picture size (hu-f-ucking-mungous), down to a respectable size others can view and enjoy.

Code:
example: 
as you have the imgur file:

I like matte silver. I'd also want it in real CF. Here's a horrible shot of the interior. I made a somewhat recent thread in the showroom with a better pic of the door open if you want to see that one.

I'm liking that Brown interior, looks good! I think the silver trim would look nice. Like the pic bartender posted, but I'm not sure if i would do the steering wheel. That's just my opinion though

I have debated this for years. Maybe piano black. Silver trim looked great on a black over black coupe. Silver with natural brown Montana reminds me of my Mom's Honda minivan. I do like the wood trim now. You can't go wrong so whatever you like.

Wood goes great with natural brown. As far as change there's a set or two of sedan piano black trim for sale on eBay, I think that'd look good too.

Although we have silver on the e46, I'd rather it be black cube, piano black, or carbon fiber wrapped (high gloss). And I am not a fan of the silver on the steering wheel being silver either.

Nothing I can't change for a few bucks...

I think satin piano black would look great. Silver and brown not good

I was thinking a high gloss black. If I don't like it I can always peel off the wrap.
