Default Show me the best C5 interiors.

The interior of the C6 is the ONLY reason why I'm considering it.

If someone can show me some nice interior mods and upgrades to the C5, it will be no contest.

I want to see seats, dashes, and an integrated sat nav in particular.

But show me anything you have that looks good!

As always, thanks in advance!

Here's mine...

Started out as a standard, all-black Z06 interior. Turned it into a half black, half tan, full quality re-do. I didn't want to do anything to make it look "unstock"; I just wanted more quality and less black.

It now features:

-Vette Essentials door pulls and steering wheel;
-Carskinz center console lid, ebrake handle, and shift ****;
-Corvette Motorsports seats and boots;
-Lloyds Mats w/ logo.

Here's the before-and-after:

Your interior is SUPER nice, tan and black looks the best i think. I dont like the c6 interior for a few reasons, the switches in the c5 are really nice, the c6 goes back to crappy plastic switches for window and door, and then theres the door button instead of a handle. And the worst part of the whole thing is that crinkle cover that slides over the cup holders, i cant stand that, the dash on the c6 is nice, thats about all i like.

Odd...that's the only think I don't like about the C6. It looks too much like every other car IMO.

Of course If it were up to me, the interior would look like a cockpit. This is what it looks like at the moment:

Thanks.

Coincidentally, I just dropped Matt an email earlier today at VetteEssentials reporting that I have had this interior installed for over a year now on my DD and it still looks like the first day I put it inservice. I thought he might be interested in getting some feedback on wear characteristics since these were the first seats he had done with this newer CF-leather supplier. Of course, I treat them with extra care, but I also treated the stock seats with the same care and they were showing signs of wear after one year.

Those Caravaggio pieces are incredible. How much was that stuff? Does anybody even elsecome close to this kind of quality on these pieces?
