I'm down to swap with you! I just picked up my z4mr two weeks ago and I don't really like the wood trim I have. I was about to take them apart and get them wrapped in carbon anyway. Where r u located? I'm in the orange county area. Hope ur not too far away!

Before getting the M I was sure I wanted carbon leather instead of walnut. But now that I've lived with the walnut for a little while, it's really grown on me.

Good luck! I'm sure someone will trade you

^^ +1 The walnut does grow on you. I didn't care for wood in a "hard core" sports car, but now I can't imagine having a completely black interior. Still, I think the walnut would have looked better on a lighter interior. Good luck w/ your trade.

Haha, what, do you have the AL or the lighter wood?

As much as I'd like to save some trim from getting carbon-wrapped, I'm working a deal with another member via PM -- will let you know if it doesn't work out for some reason. Sorry! (I'm about as far away as you can get and still be in the US, btw).

Thanks! I'm a longtime woodworker (typing on the cherrywood desk I made myself ten years ago, in fact), so wood has always mattered to me. I was looking for one of the 13 ILB/LS/WM cars, but jumped on one of the 19 ILB/LS/CL cars when it came up, but still feel a twinge when I see the W/M trim on another's car. No more! Haha, this forum is great!

i'm still pinching myself whether i should've bought the sepang bronze roadie with light sepang interior and madeira wood trim when i'd flown into houston to buy my interlagos m coupe. at the time, i was definitely a little put off by sepang (it was the centerpiece car on the showroom floor) and sitting in the cabin gave me more of a luxury feeling as opposed to a sporty feel. thinking back now though, it was among the nicest combinations and would've seriously set me thinking had i more time to think about it.

hope the madeira swap happens!

You people are nuts. Wood belongs on a boat, not in an ///M. It looks awful.

As the owner of a woody, Madeira does not look good in pictures. If you haven't seen it in person you cannot make a judgement on how it looks. I personally love it but beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Aluminum and carbon leather is so banal.

+1 I was dead set against wood because in pictures it looks bad. However after having it in person it really is beautiful, much darker and richer than in most pictures.

Now I think the interior wouldn't look nearly as cool in all black with carbon leather; wood adds some really nice warmth and color to the interior.

Edit: thinking about it more, I think the best trim is the one that looks better in the context of exterior and interior color.

Yeah I was shocked: several PMs and in thread interest.

I personally don't care about adopting any particular "look" beyond "what I like!" And I likey the wood.

The Z4 with a tan interior and pretty much any kind of wood trim looks terrible. Now a black interior, with saddle brown trimmed door cards and seats with wood trim looks rather classy.
