Gary, now that is a deep, rich, red I love. For me the brassy, fire engine, bright reds hurt my eyes. I can still hear Ricardo Montablan(sp) shilling the "deep, rich Corinthian leather" in one or another Chrysler product. The preceding is not an endorsement of any Chrysler product domestic or foreign.72 bavaria
Love the matte finish of your wood. I wanted the same treatment but Madera advised on a gloss finish to better show the grain of the woodwork.All I can offer so far is a test fit of a rear window panel and it wasn't even snapped it.
I have only had the car to drive a couple of times. I have not used the cup holder. Your suggestions seem like good ideas. To be continued....I will definitely check with a local upholstery shop for a leather match. I have a comment and a question on the armrest.
1) I wish it had a support under the drink holder, so a cup or water bottle didn't rest on the handbrake (I put a terrycloth under the drink to absorb condensation). I wonder if you could adapt one of the dash-mounted cupholders from an e90 (not for the swing-out action, just the drop down cup support).
2) Doesn't moisture from a beverage get into your USB outlet? I put a power plug in my glove box, which requires a USB converter and a longer cord, but is out of sight.
Anton stopped making these. I’m not sure why, but he did confirm. He is still in the BMW game, wrapping up his CS restoration. He’s local and we stay in touch.
