Hey Guys,

Its been awhile since Ive been on this board, not due to anything outside of my recent engagement and the mentality that if im on here posting - then im not exactly making things for customers... Which usually is not ideal.

But I did want to take a moment to showcase some customer images we have received and taken ourselves regarding the Bespoke Trim services we offer now officially.

Pricing varies per set of trim due to fiber types (we offer twill, hex fiber, colorshift fiber, combinations of Alcantara/Perf Leather (yes on trim) and various logos or stripes added)

Twill Base pricing for an E82 Trim is $500 shipped back to you.
Twill Base Pricing for an E90 Trim is $600 shipped back to you.
Twill Base Pricing for an E92 Trim is $650 shipped back to you.


- Adding stripes to trim parts is $50 more and Hex Fiber is an additional $100
- Adding Alcantara/Perf Leather to half the main trim parts is an extra $120 and includes a free stripe color. (Dash, L/R Door Trim)

How does this work?
  • Send us your trim! Its that easy!
What does all this include?
  • BMW Full Interior trim
    • E90/92/93/60 is a full 9-12 parts front and rear trim including the center console, ash tray cover, both door trim, rear door trim, rear center console, rear ash tray cover, and dashboard trim.
    • E82/88 is a full interior trim 4-6 parts including center console, ash tray cover and both door trim.
  • We will repair damaged trim and level the surface. Fix cracks or dents that occur through the life of the part (but we do love getting non damaged trim too!)
  • Level the parts with particle blasting to ensure perfect bonding of the new fiber.
  • Priming the part for infusion.
  • Once ready the part will enter our vacuum table and the fiber selected will be put under total vacuum allowing for a perfect lay down of the fiber onto complex curvatures while evacuating any trapped air pockets or bubbles.
  • After total vacuum is attained we then introduce Epoxy Resin into the part via our bleeder system which “fuses” the fiber onto the part. This is a step we do that nobody else does since most shops use a wet layup.
  • Once done, we move the table to a cure booth where direct medium wave Infrared Light cures the part inside out for 8-12 hours.
  • Removing the part from the vacuum table we then build the top layers to give it a deep finish.
  • After we trim and level the surfaces it receives a 2 part automotive UV clear coat followed up by pneumatic wet sanding then a final 3 stage polish.
  • Usual turn time is 1-4 weeks. (we do sometimes go longer as we get many orders and complexity vaires)
Educate me on what makes your parts so good?
  • Well most all other shops do not use a vacuum resin infusion process. While that is the ideal methodology for parts that are made using a mold; we have perfected it for refinishing parts that usual female molds cannot do. In this case the complex rear pins and slide points for trim are a great example.

  • Wet layups or “laminating” exposes the part to air and various floating dust particles that under a 12 hours cure time can get trapped onto a part creating a very fine haze to the part. That prevents/deflects light from entering which dulls the depth of the finish. Once the part is mated with fiber you now run into the usual “air bubble entrapment” which is when air pockets are created under the surface of the fiber layer. When this occurs eventually the part will start to separate around the bubble and with ambient heat causing the fiber to eventually separate from entirely or crack along stress points. This is not only bad but ruins the base part, destroys the carbon fiber and is a huge headache for the customer since they now have a part that lasted a short time and must have it redone.

  • We use a HVLP gun to apply a true 2 part automotive (4:1) clear that is cured in our paint booth under low frequency quartz/IR lamps just like any paint shop would. This enables our parts to cure inside and out with INSANE gloss and strength. Doing this is very costly but its night and day against our competitors.

Not sure why my time with Aje at Bluewater performance matters, but it was a nice visit.

He was very pleasant and TBH that picture on my thread is sorta odd...
Gabe at BW is a good guy. Only one I know. Do you have any pics of any of the alcantara work? Carbon work looks great.

Gabe is fantastic :) - and the Alcantara option was added this week, we are developing it now to showcase but are starting the forged carbon trim tomorrow so it maybe a little. I will update here once everything is picture worthy.
I'm excited to see it all.

NRW: Do you have somewhere where you detail your steering wheel options? I'm looking at getting mine done, all scuffed up.

Looks nice, but why is it listed as sold out on the website?

I purchased a complete cf set on ebay, im fairly sure the seller just sends it to you and it gets sent to me.
