    I'd go for hydrographics (aka carbon dipping), rather than wrap - looks better and more durable, in my opinion.

    I have already thought about carbon wrapping the wood trim and putting some chrome trims on the dashboard , on the vents , and I thought abut alloy pedals too . But I want to make my car more modern , more luxurious . I don t want people to perceive it as an old car but rather as a car with style .

    I thank you all for your answers .

    I also thought about putting dashboard light at the back of it to illuminate only the letters and numbers and not the whole dashboard as usual . Does someone has an idea about how this can be done ?
    Thank you !

    It already is a car with style!

    The big danger is that by "modernising" it you cheapen it and remove the style and elegance it was built with.
    There is a certain chic to the interiors of older cars - I much prefer the interior of our 1993 SL to the interior of the 2002 SL.

    Google "w124 plasma dials". You need the new dials to match the old ones (rpm, mph etc...)

    Post a few pictures of the interior - it'll be easier to suggest something.

    I've modified my own (2006) interior substantially, but I'm with LK on older cars - it's a very fine balance, and needs to be done with utmost respect for the original design, very often the old charm is far better than today's fad ...

    Hi Vlad, welcome to the forum. :) If that was me I would leave it exactly how it came out of the factory. But that is only my opinion :rolleyes:

    I also agree , a mint looking older car is much more of a talking point than a chintzed up one
