    A few other bits i have already done;

    I restored all the exterior trim with C'techniq C4 - I used this on my 3 series and its permanent, wont wash off or fade

    They look good as new now

    Before:


    After:



    I also tidy'd up the intior trim,

    I wrapped the door handles in 3m matt grey vinyl from ebay as they were chipped and scratched, and i have sprayed the ash tray as i couldnt wrap it as the shap was too hard

    And the gear surrond not only had a hole drilled in it, all the clips had been broken so i have ordered a new one

    Before:







    After:




    Thanks for looking

    Looking really nice!
    If your looking out for a piece of round plastic to cover the key hole in the boot, have you considered deleting the keyhole altogether?
    I assume that you have a button on the key to pop the boot like E46's have don't you?
    It would make it look really smooth I reckon!
    Just an idea bud!

    P.S the carpeted garage rocks man!


    Despite the high cost of living, It remains popular!

    Never bullshit a bullshitter, they'll just bring you down to their level and trash you with experience!

    A mate of mine recently admitted that he was a brake fluid addict! When I quizzed him about it he insisted that he could stop any time.

    Thanks

    Lol yea the garage is good with the carpet in, keeps the dust down and makes it warmer. They are just off cuts

    I have thought about completely deleting it but I don't really want to incase I need to get in the boot with the key for any reason

    The plastic can jus be removed
