anyone have a black/gray interior?


Recommended Posts

I live in Texas, so I don't want an all black interior, so I considered gray carpets, door panels with top part black, bottom part gray, and seats with the middle gray, sides black... just an idea, but does anyone have any interior kind of like this?

Thanks, I'd just like to see a few pictures of what I'm getting myself into..

Very popular in Europe, particularly (as Paul said) on Tourings and Targas.

Cloth centres are a must in Texas. I changed my stock cloth centred seats on the Touring for all vinyl Recaros; much better seat but real slick (wet!) in the Texas heat.

My '76 came with these seats (pics) - don't know if they are stock or what but real good in the summer.

I'm here in Austin as well and just recently did something similar. I had all tan vinyl but recently bought a set of Recaros with grey cloth and then dyed the side panels and rear seat black to match. It came out great. I've thought about gray carpet when it comes time to replace it but I am fine with black for now.

As you know, it has been getting cooler here in Austin (thank god) so I haven't noticed any real difference inside as far as heat goes. The few days that it has been pretty warm, the cloth SURELY makes a difference.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
