Smile Why is it that there is so little done on the interior ?

I was wondering why no one posts improvements
on the interior ??
Or is it that as soon as you install an aftermarket radio you mess up the centerconsole...
Are there people that changed the interior drastically ??

?? Let me know if anyone is interested in a European centerconsole ( for DIN 1 size radios ) I had some shipped to the US...
<until now the best change in the interior >

Did anyone put a light in the glove compartment ?? if so please fotos !! :-)

Regards, Herman

That is the reason I usually don't ask questions around here. Whats with the "Newbie" shoutin? This is a message board. If people didn't ask questions, where would we be?

As to the question, I would love to modify my interior, but the problem is that many of the interior dash kits are of a horrible quality, and I really don't want to paint my parts. There are some pics in the members section of the site, its fun to just browse state by state and see what people's styles are.

Have fun, and welcome aboard.

Jim

I to have looked at other members car pics they can give you a good idea of what can be done to your RS.
I do not remember at the moment who's car it was but the interior of ti was done in white with blue it looked awsome. I think that if you have to spend alot of time in the car might as well make it to your liking.

Also welcome aboard

I think that for me, the interior just doesn't matter. I have a Legacy GT wagon, and it's just fine. The stereo sounds really good, and everything is where it needs to be. I dunno, I think that I'd rather put that money into performance, although once my coilovers arrive, I'll have pretty much run out of places to do that....

Now that you mention it, my seats could be better....

Welcome to the club!

As for interior mods, here's my list:

Recaro
New stereo/speakers
V1
"Fold down rear seat" mod, but not really
Took warning labels off sun visors
Bugs Bunny road trip companion buckled in the back seat
Trunk bunny (Like a trunk monkey, but faster response http://www.trunkmonkey.com )

Cosmetically, I'm not going to alter my interior. IE: I'm not going to paint the parts, or change fabric. I use my RS for ski trips, and I'm certain all the mud and salt and grime and ski gear would make a mess of things.
A lighted glove box and trunk would be nice, but I lack the motivation and electrical skill to take on that kind of mod.

Drive smooth.

I have a genuine Corinthian carbon fiber dash kit! Got it off Ebay a long time ago. I didn't realize until I got it that it wasn't REAL carbon fiber, but it matches the checkered seat and upolstry pattern and looks pretty cool. I get compliments all the time.
