What mods have you done to the interior of your car?

I must admit that mine is pretty standard apart from a set of car mats I got from ebay. Sadly they were cheap and creases have started to appear in them.

1st up the Passat W8 interior light
gauge din panel installed
carputer installed in place of gauges and CD player
2 gauges reinstalled in a customised lower centre console
1 gauge and 1 blanking plate in the handbrake cover.
have thought about ditching the rest of the walnut trim for the aluminum but cant justify the cost. approx £200 for doors and climate control and £97 according to VW for the gearknob

But there is still such thing as bad taste! At least when he grows up he can look back and laugh! Not being mean, just being honest. Sounds tacky to me but we've all done it!

heres some pics





its not that over the top. im gonna get some blue bucket seats next. also i dont mind what comments people put because i like what i like and you like what you like. if people like my car then yay if not then owell. not to sound horrible. i may look back and laugh but then again that will only be because all the painting is done with a paint brush and not spray. and i will do it properly second time round. lol .

nowt like being patronising is there!

just cos he says he has lots of blue in his car doesnt mean he is a chav or being imature.

personally i like it barring the blue light tubes (maybes a couple of led strips hidden in the footwells would look nicer - and would last longer) and not keen on the glovebox decal but apart from that i like it. So well done for doing what you want and sticking 2 fingers up at everyone else. :)

I have near enough every blub inside mine blue, luminous yellow/green wheels so if that makes me a chav and i need to grow up then so be it

doesnt look too bad. not a fan of the glovebox or the vents - infact the lightblue areas. but the dark blue isnt as bad as i thought. but as 2fast said get the neon hidden away behind the lower panels

yup. i have planned to hide the neons away for the last 3 weeks now . i have never got round to doin it.

i hav only kept the light blue on the dash because the seat covers and mats are light blue . but i may paint it dark blue at a later date

I also have blue LEDs in my dome light and trunk light, glove box and door lights. I blacked out the Mazda symbol in my steering wheel with Matt paint. Armorall makes everything look better

C'mon guys back on topic. I've just fitted an EK9 gearknob. It's really smooth, but it's always cold in the morning! :lol:

What materials does everyone prefer inside? Alcantara? Leather? Cloth?
What's your favourite colour combination for the interior?

mmm leather! :D
seriously though, i binned my old seats in favour of some huggy half leather ones, ive got my alcantara fix from the custom made gear gaitor and handbrake gaitor. Ive gone red and blue leds in the dash, white leds in the lights and installed led door lights too. Ive illuminated my arm rest cubby and ive got a nice metal gearknob from a GSi.

My steering wheel is a OEM Irmscher one, it matches my titanium trim nicely too.

next on the interior is sorting my ICE out, and build a new boot install. I also need a boost gauge, and oil pressure/temp to match my volts gauge. Ive lost nearly all the functions on my trip computer since haviong teh turbo installed, so i may bin that in favour of something else. I was considering buying a sat nav that can take an external antenna and be controllable via remote and fabricating a mount for it instead. It would be behind the clear plastic that protects the speedo and rev counter, hence the need for remote control.

any one else tried something like that before?
