Good choice on a car but that interior is just not doing it for me.

I agree. Argh it hurts the eyes. To each his own, I suppose. As long as it works for you.

Howdy All,
Half the interior is ok but the bright stuff is a little much.

As pleasent as neutral-color car interiors may be, after years of bland variations of greys, tans and beiges, I kind of like that red!

Happy Motoring, Mark

Yes, mark said it. The gray in my Benz gives me a headache. I only got this car because of the interior! And its the ALMS special edition... The red one had white interior. And the bite is plenty, but more on the way, as soon as I can afford something bad happening as a result to stuff like the turbo and clutch. I'll look up the jeremy clarkson review.

THe flash from the camera probably doesn't flatter it too much, I bet it looks pretty good in person.

I LOVE the body lines of those cars... And they are FUN to drive. But I've never been a fan of the contrasting two-tone interiors either.... Looks a bit too "rice-racer" for my taste....which will probably draw the ire of the PC police... but I don't care.

Mike

I'm doing it too. My girlfriend got an 84 bmw 325e, five speed. She has been very mad at me lately because I won't let her drive her car. I'm having way too much fun.
