Pic & Opinion Request: Hartge CF interior w/ Silverstone leather
I searched the board for a picture of someone who has the Hartge carbon fiber interior pieces on the silverstone leather interior and I found none. Lots of pics of the black leather w/ Hartge from water34 though:
Installing Hartge handbrake lever and Pedals
Hartge Steering wheel, handbrake lever and Pedals (pictures)
Silver Grey with HRE 843R and Hartge interior pieces (more pictures)
My M3 is Steel Gray with black interior and needless to say the CF interior blends in perfectly (should have pics in my gallery if they've been approved).
My M5 however, has a very light color motif: Alpine White exterior, light grey (Silverstone) interior, and the currently aluminum trim. I think it looks great, and will post pics of the interior soon in this thread. The question is: should I even bother changing the trim and wheel out? Spending a few G's to customize and be different only to feel your car looks worse afterwards is a pretty bad feeling.
I am almost ready to make my big Hartge purchase from Will @ Turner but can't decide if the black CF will look good on my interior (steering wheel and dash/door kit). I also hate that the SMG shifter base and the shifter itself remain aluminum / satin silver against the CF -- looks so bad to me. I know Evosport made a custom CF shifter for Cerberos and he mentions them developing the base: Almost complete (pics)
, but I have yet to see it. I'm looking to you all for opinions and better yet if you have them -- pictures!!
Oh and does anyone know whether or not my Eisenmann race will fit with the Hartge rear diffusor add on?
