    Revamp an STi interior

    I love the STi, but I can't say I love the seats and the blue on the door trim.

    1) Is there any way to make the blue on the door handles simply solid black... or does anyone have a better idea? How much would this run?

    2) What would be some seat ideas? I remember seeing a company that did leather WRX seats a while back but I don't have the link anymore. Has anyone done anything like Recaro's in an STi that you may have pictures of? I just like the look of solid black or something like the stock Evo 9 seats. Would the 06 leather seats of a WRX work?

    Thanks in advance

    do some research. there are companies that can reupholster the interior. if you don't like the blue, do that or research permanent fabric dyes. if you want different seats, well, theres a huge selection. a lot of people would like better lateral support, and there's quite a few seat manufacturers with a bunch of styles and designs to choose from. sparco, cobra, bride, and a whole lotta others i can't remember rigth now. sparco is probably the most widely known.

    edit- leather is overrated. i'll take alacantra any day.

    A STi once traded an interior with me...you may want to consider the same. That way you can make some money off your interior and then use that to help offset the cost to dye the fabric to whatever shade of black you want.

    Your only option if you want to keep your side airbags is trading with an 04 wrx or dying them(sounds tricky). Iv been wating to get version 7 seats for the longest times but i reaaaaaaaaaally wanna keep my side airbags.

    Leather seats

    This is the link that you were looking for I think. A good choice! They are the company that I am going to get my seats covers through when I am ready!

    im pretty sure the special edition ESX STis (the 425 HP one) is only gonna be sold in red with the white strips down the middle(cause those are ESX's trademark colors) with those krazy painted rims too.

    you could always paint it black afterwards!


    but ya that would definatly look sweet, i remeber seeing a sweet S2000 all black but with a red interior, looked really nice
