Our BMW E46 real
carbon fiber interior overlay trim kits are an excellent addition to your BMW,
giving it the sporty look that only real high quality carbon fiber can.
These AutoCarbon trim kits are different from all others on the market. These parts
are made by true carbon fiber craftsmen and are made from only top
quality materials using the newest DRY CARBON technology. Dry carbon
technology creates very consistent weave on these parts and allows for
an extremely thin part. This technology combined with professional
clear coating, free of drips or blobs creates a perfect looking kit
These overlays fit precisely over the existing trims, and are attached
using adhesive tape. The CF quality of these parts is incredible, and
you will be surely pleased. All parts are easily removable if required.
Our interior trim kits overlay all of the wood, aluminum or plastic style trim that your BMW E46 came with (number of pieces varies depending on vehicle type.) E46 Coupe (8pcs), E46 Sedan (8pcs) & E46 Convertible (6pcs).
NOTE: We chose to offer our customers overlay trims as opposed to full trim
replacement kits for a couple of reasons. First, the cost of an overlay
kit is much lower for our customers than full replacement kits. Second,
full replacement trim kits use fiberglass to replicate the OEM trims,
onto which a layer of carbon fiber is added for visual effect. Given
the production process required to create this fiberglass base,
maintaining the tolerances found in OEM plastic trims is not possible,
not only that, but the added thickness of the fiberglass base on full
replacement kits makes the panels not sit together flush at the points
where they meet / overlap. Finally, the fiberglass base of the trim
panels are not as strong as the factory plastic bases. On load bearing
panels, such as armrests and door handles; over time, the underlying
fiberglass will eventually weaken and crack, making the pieces fall off!
that due to the curvature of some of these parts and the nature of
carbon fiber, it is very difficult to produce these products in carbon fiber.
While there are not seams, tears, blotches, folds, bumps, gaps or
twisting of the carbon material on these parts (as we have seen with
imitation kits), there is an unavoidable change in pattern density in the
carbon in the edges or strong curves. This is still a natural look for
carbon, and is not a defect. Returns are not available for this reason.
