Vehicle owners may want to change the interior trim of the car doors individually. In the standard equipment of the cars, it is usually a matter of carrier parts made of plastic with different fabrics or in higher equipment variants also with leather, which cover the metal of the door from the inside and accommodate numerous other components. These panels are shaped in such a way that they are then usually an optical continuation of the dashboard. In older vehicles in particular, however, these interior panels can be rather unsightly, as they can wear out comparatively quickly. Then it certainly makes sense to replace these panels - either with new original equipment or directly with a personal, individualized variant.
Added value - new interior door trim?
A technically perfect, individualized interior cladding can look great. However, as with all tuning measures, it is essential to ensure that it does not make a bumbling or unprofessional impression, otherwise the visual added value would be lost immediately.
Worauf ist zu echten?
The correct formation of such components can be a considerable effort (time and depending on related materials also financially), so that one should think well about such a project. Depending on the equipment of the vehicle finally some other components must be integrated into the panel, such as the technique of the door opener and the (electrical) Door lock, armrests, handles, the buttons for the electric windows and the mirror adjustment and also speakers or storage compartments, can holders, ashtrays or depending on the vehicle and construction, the air outlet vents of the air conditioning. This means that essential functions must be considered in the design of these individual components. Of course, such a modification of the interior must not limit the airbag functions!
Alternatives to the new door trim
An alternative to the complete redesign of these components may be, for example, repainting or remodeling with other surfaces. Here then very high-quality components and surfaces such as carbon, metal, fabric, leather, etc. can be used. These design measures can then be made on the dashboard, so that here a harmonious overall impression can arise. After all, very few tuners will want to redesign the dashboard itself from scratch. Therefore, most of the individual redesign of the interior trim will give preference, because a complete exchange for an individual trim is as already said very expensive. The integration of optically very attractive lighting elements (LED, etc.) is also an issue in the interior door paneling sector, offering endless design options and giving the tuner's imagination free reign.
Of course, with all these measures modifying the vehicle, the safety aspect should never be neglected! This means: if you redesign the interior door trim, functions such as opening, closing and the functionality of the airbags must never be restricted!
Lightweight construction instead of luxury
Of course you can only replace the door trim with the background of lightweight construction. Covers made of carbon almost always come into play with only one loop to close the doors and the handle (or another loop) to open. The rest is designed for convenience. Frequently, competition vehicles are equipped with it. But also for road cars like the BMW M3, such carbon door blades are available. We hope that you the info report on the topic / term individual door trim (further names / keywords: Carbon door trim, carbon door board, carbon doorblades, custom door cover, lightweight door trim, console trim) from the field of autotuning.
