Question Whats the best interior colour on a R 35?

In your opinion whats the best interior colour on a 35?

I am not a fan of the red & black seats myself so thought I would ask.

I think Black and Red on the Black and Red GT-R's.

On the Greys, Blues, Whites then the Premium Black interior looks better.

So I guess my preference would actually depend on the car colour, but in summary my opinion is that said the standard Black interior suits all whereas the black and red doesn't. (Especially the Yellow GT-R at Le Mans last year with Black/Red interior eek)

Quite agree, except for the problem colours. Wouldn't put the red inserted interior on a yellow or blue car, but looks great on everything else.

Thing is, on the 2011, the non Recaro seats are no where near as good looking, and the grey roof lining makes the interior less sporty.

So much so that aft spotting the difference, I specifically looked for a black roof lining on my Audi a3 too.

I quite like the light coloured premium interior. very different and a nice contrast to the usual blk/red interior or the full blk. Again it would only suit certain exterior colours though.

When I first saw the Recaro seats I wasn't sure on the Red trim, but it's grown on me.

To be honest there is no nice R35 interior
They are all rubbish, because they have been designed for prospect caucasian buyers, who all live in the world of Audi TTs, SLKs and Boxters . . .
The leather trims on the dash and doors are not nice, so are not the plastics, which brings the question to the surface, why they have bothered adding so much weight in the interior, when a sky-like material, alcantara and carbon fiber would have made a better looking cabin. . . . or they should have gone for a Audi R8 cabin, adding a few grands to the price of the car!

Best R35 interior seen yet, was at a shopping-mall in japan: Black R35 with red Bride ZETA seats, complete Type-R like red floor carpet cloth, full door, dash and sealing black alcantara trim . . . and the cherry was a simple Nardi steering-wheel . . . that was the BOSS!

Not only can you not write English, boss, but you clearly have no taste/class, delete as applicable.

IMO the black edition seats with the red bits look nice in a black or red car. The premium seats look best in a white or grey car.

The light seats look naff in any colour car, because the rest of the interior is not matched to them, making it look like you bought them on ebay from another car and slung them in.

Have had 3 GTR's and had all three set options...would avoid the grey as marks so easily and after 2,000 miles when I got rid of car the seats looked grim...Westover told me they really struggle to sell cars with the grey interior

I actually really like the lighter seats as they make the car look bigger and different from everyone elses
