Default STU STI legality concern

I'm considering buying an 05 STI that has the entire interior converted to black. The carpet, doors, headliner, plastic parts, etc. The plastic parts are from a JDM S204, The carpet is from a WRX, the door cards and headliner were redone with black Alcantara, and the rear seat was upholstered to match the fabric used on the front seats. It all looks stock, just black. Would these things be protestable at nationals? Does this fall under confort and convenience?

Thanks,
John

I could consider that being legal under comfort and convenience. I wouldn't worry about it, unless something is done to make the car weigh less.

Yeah, I certainly hope not, coz I did the opposite. The rule says, IIRC, C&C is okay as long as it does not result in "material weight loss" or something like that.
