Default Gray interior with black seats?

I did a search, but it didn't really turn up with anything. Does anybody have any pictures of a gray interior with black seats? I'm tired of the complete lack of bolstering on my stockers, and I've been trying to find a set of gray vaders, sport seats, or racing seats for too long. To this end, I think I'm probably just going to pick up a set of black seats, but I'm curious as to how it'll look. Thanks in advance for any help.

Ah, I should've said that I've been looking for used seats, not new. I'd love to pick up a gray set of CR1's or TRS's, but I can't find any used ones in gray.

I have been thinking about the same thing, actually...I mean, there is some black in there, so I'm not sure how it will look.

I keep going back and forth between spending the extra $240 on a new set of gray Corbeaus or not, but I dunno. Since They need recovering anyway, I think I'll probably do the headliner and a-pillars in black, if I go with the black seats.

There are some DIY convert your interior to black mods, I can't really put my hands on em right now. It didn't come out looking too bad. Just seemed like a ton of work though. IIRC it was fairly cheap.

Ugh, I don't want to dye my dash, carpet, and such. I like my gray interior, but I'm at my wit's end for seats.

Well, I went back to contemplating spending the extra $240 on a set of gray Corbeau's, so I called and decided to head up to my local Corbeau dealer. I got there at 2:40, and the place freaking closed at 2. Yeah, it's a Saturday, but 2? I was pissed that I drove a half an hour for nothing.

Yeah, I'd appreciate it. If I can save $240 and not have it look like ****, then I'm sure as heck going to.

I'd be interested in seeing black vaders in a grey interior as well

I'm sure it will look fine, I am in the same boat with the stock seats. Tired of the hot sticky leather and total lack of side bolster support

You mean I'm not the only one with that problem? I want to turn on the A/C, but it's not hot enough for me to sacrifice the precious horse power
