I have painted plastics in the past.

Prep is paramount.
Be sure to thoroughly degrease, apply etching primer and proper plastic(vinyl) paint.
I used PPG products specifically for plastics and the results were very good.

As far as colour goes. My 3.0 came with the beige interior which were promptly stripped and swapped to black.

Be advised you will likely break tabs off during disassembly. The plastics get very brittle from the sun.

I replaced the entire interior except the dash with an OEM interior in my Z4
The aluminum trim was powder coated black

Not sure how you would do the door cards.
I had the seats rebolstered and recovered in Alcantara and leather

The interior I painted was in a 67 Mustang.
