i think you should stick to dark colours, like the velour in the seats, the crushed velvet would look awsome in a darker colour, but its a good visual effect!

My Dad's ED V8 used to rev off the clock. It was an auto, and totally stock.

I'm sure they qualify as a cosmetic touch, even if the stock one is perfectly capable, they add to the effect.

fair enough! But you need to look at the 'whole' picture to judge one part of the car...

the finish of the paint is top notch... think it clashes with the door trims and the centre console though... cheapens the interior a lil...

sorry to say but thats the worst interior ive ever seen. Then again im more of a stock trim kinda guy. Also, the monster tacho and oil pressure guages etc that you have custom mounted look HORRIBLE, especially seing as the gauges are already in the dash.

IMO monster tacho's and oil pressure guages are for wank factor, you arnt a race car driver, they serve no purpose and just look stupid.

lol you dont need a tacho - PERIOD in an auto. completely useless. the only exception is maybe if you manual shift gears in auto, which i do in my 3speed box in my mustang, but i do that purley to stop it from shifting into 2nd on takeoff if i am trying to show off.

Even then i dont have a tacho, nor need one. Any decent driver knows the shifting limits of their engines from gear to gear from the sou8nd and feel of the engine.

Only noobs need tacho's, and wanks need 2 tacho's in an auto.

Just my opinion.

His motor has had work done to it, it can rev to 6500, his stock tacho goes to 6. Sure the shiftlight is useless, but the tacho isn't - eg if your doing a burnout in an auto in first/second you'd like to keep an eye on the intruments/tacho. I'm not a fan of the massive tacho, I prefer a smaller tacho, but f**k, he invited you to comment on his dash inserts, not bag the f**k out of his car
