bmw thumb BMW Customized Interior UpgradesIf you think only the outside half of your BMW counts, think again.  Though visually many people will focus more on your BMW’s exterior, when it comes to friends, family, guest passengers, and yourself, the part that really matters is the interior.  If you’re unsatisfied with the appearance of your BMW’s interior space, consider utilizing some aftermarket BMW interior accessories.  From replacements for mildew-laden floor mats to stylish seat covers that hide rips in your car’s upholstery, there really are no limits to how you choose to improve the appearance of your vehicle’s interior.

If your car’s main problem is upholstery damage, you’re probably used to seeing rips, tears, and stains on your vehicle’s seats.  Your BMW is supposed to be a luxury vehicle, and screwed up seating doesn’t exactly scream ‘luxury.’  A few options are available to fix this kind of damage.  For a quick fix, try using some BMW aftermarket seat covers.  These covers will easily hide damage, and some of the higher end ones are also high in quality.  If you want a more permanent, customized fix, go with an entire seating upgrade, such as the installation of BMW racing seats.  You can even pair those new seats with racing seat belts for a unique interior look.
