getting started on my car, first thing thats needed doing is the seats cause they were ****ed and failed their safety tests

I got some black/grey seats from a more modern e30 (did you know the damn mounting points aren't the same? spent all day cutting bits off the new seats). My interior is cream though. What i want to know is should i change the interior to match or do the two colours go sweet together

btw i paid 350 NZ dollars for the seats, 300 ish canadian

sorry the pics were taken on a cell phone, looked way better on the phone, but it gives an idea of the color

Huge improvement!!!!!! Looks nice!
I never knew seats played a role in the safety...

yeah man our cars will fail their WoF (warrent of fitness) if everything isn't in shape.

My seats were so routed they would dip heaps under breaking, the back passengers couldn't get out and they were really off centre with the steering wheel.

I think it'd look better if the colours matched. However it looks pretty good the way it is - 100x better than your shit-stain seats anyway. :P

I would think that if you matched the door cards to the seats, it would look a lot better.

hmm the contrast is growing on me


i guess for 150 bucks to change all the sides it ain't that bad.
