    Hey guys,
    I'm looking to upgrade my current standard dark grey cloth interior to some plush leather but would some opinions as to what colour would work? The car itself is orient blue metallic, the seats are dark grey as are the carpets and the headliner/pillars are very light grey almost cream. I love red and beige/cream as I think they would look great in contrast to the orient blue but not sure they would work with the current carpet/headliner. I don't want to have to change the headliner and pillars so do you think some variation of grey is my only option? Opinions would be appreciated, cheers!

    It can depend on what the colour of the car is. My car's silver, and I think that black or dark red works best (I have black leather).

    For darker coloured cars, like blue, dark grey, black, yours, then I would say a cream leather/beige would look best and be a great contrast

    Cheers Joe, i think cream/beige will look great, i had toyed with dark red but that would have meant dying the carpet/headliner black to make it work and id rather keep it standard. When I get it and its installed ill post up some pics

    There's a dark blue E36 locally with full leather interior in white/cream... It certainly looks a helluva lot better in that colour than if it were black. It stands out and contrasts really well, I'd say!
