Im lost...... I got all worked up to do my interior, started it and now have changed my mind about 13 fkn times n cant decide on anything!!!!!!! Grr @ me buying a fkn cuppacino interior...... Well i have my dash shroud black the stereo n ashtray surround black have worked out silver as my 2nd color but am lost as to a 3rd..... Considering my interior is all done with white led's sorta makes it hard, and i think white wouldnt suit against so much black n silver. Im thinking of maybe a charcoal color??? Any suggestions would b excellent i will post some pics up when i have it back together a bit.

looks great mate very unique...yeh true having no airbag is a comprise in your own saftey and altho ya look at it like how many accidents do u have in your life and it only takes one but hey then again you could get collected from the side or have such an impact like alot of accidents where the airbag couldnt do anything to save the driver. And all the banter from members regarding legalities is sometimes funny since most myself included are driving unroadworthy vehicles anyway....so each to their own.

The banter over legalities of steering wheels and the crap that goes on over tachos' etc (ie:anything that makes your car look but not go better) is funny as hell. What is a led modded dash???? In my book thats something that makes your car look better with no difference other than looks. So does that = rice?????? Funny tho as thats not considered rice but putting a tacho on or a big spoiler is...........

instead of silver why not go with a nice fine gold then you could put a gold pearl over or in the black as well that would go nice with the rest of your cappa try and keep it to your major colour and two minor colours

Ive decided black dash surround, Anodised blue where u have your red n silver highlights here n there with a silver radio surround. Am painting/ dyeing the rest of the interior so matching doesnt matter that much. This way i can put silver n blue highlights thru the car will post some pics up tonite/tomorrow depends on how long its all gonna take me (im doing leds and paper slips for the dash/trip comp at the same time...)

Because its a autotecnica boss kit, do you have to get a autotcnica wheel? or will any brand do?

yes an awesome colour, looks very good. Get rid of the sticker of the chick on your dash, it doesn't fit in. Looking forward to seeing when you have the whole car up to colour!

Gee I don't know why everyone is so worried about the airbag unless you are in an accident at high speeds they do more damage than good. I had one go of in my face and it ain't good hurts like hell, not saying that they don't save lives but in my case I would have been better off without it. Anyway back to the topic love it mate looks really good.
