    Interior Color Switchout?

    Possibly crazy question but....

    I've been searching awhile for an '09/10 4.2 coupe in Daytona/Oxygen with black interior. Almost everything I've found in that exterior combo has either red or (mostly) Tuscan interior. Is it crazy to consider swapping that out for black seats/door panels? Is there a market for parts like this? Thanks.

    Surley it would make more sense to get the car with the interior you want and then wrap it? Would workout a lot cheaper!

    Funny... I'm looking for red interior and I keep finding black. We should talk if we both end on with interiors we didn't love haha

    Maybe not so funny. Keep me in mind. I really don't know how realistic this is but seems like a pretty simple replacement. Actually, I know of a car in my specs with a red interior right now. Want to talk about it? Do you know anybody on here that replaced seats?

    I am utterly jealous. The nearest professional interior specialist that I can find is a 1,000kms and two countries away. Was hoping for something stunning in red but that is destined to remain a rabid fantasy.

    I am in NE Ohio, near Cleveland. I never thought of the wrapping option either. Can anybody provide some insight on how much this costs and how it holds up over time?
