So I decided to be the guinea pig for the CarID interior kit.

Overall, very pleased. However, I didn't set the bar real high...

It really is very nice, definitely real carbon fiber, and only one piece in the kit had a fitment issue.

I ended up only using about 30% of the whole kit, as it looked like absolute, tacky overkill with everything installed.

What I really liked, was all the great flexible pieces that molded around the steering wheel, dash and gauges.

Here's the few pieces i kept:

very nicely done, looks like an expert install. which piece was most difficult to install?
Thank you very much :) I used a heat gun, which makes install much easier. I'd say the most difficult piece was the big piece that wraps around the whole armrest/console and cup holder. Fortunately, after I laid down half of it, I quickly realized it looked absolutely 'ridiculous' with all that carbon fiber, it looked worse. So I just kept the lids and the trim around the lids on the center console.

You get a LOT of carbon fiber pieces in this kit, but honestly, you probably won't use a lot of it, some pieces are just absurd in intention.

Install was great as mentioned, don't see anything that looks out of line!
I'm not a big fan of carbon fiber overlay and just not a fan of how this looks on the interior of your GLA, but as long as you're happy with it, that's all that matters!

Hi there!

Where did you purchase the carbon kit from? And is it real carbon fibre?
All of that was mentioned in his first post lol.
