well, way too much red. but aesthetics aside, the work appears to be of a very high quality (i mean, a lot of aftermarket interiors are replete with too much carbon fibre, crooked stitch lines, etc.).

if i were going to go to that much work however, i think i'd be a bit more creative with the colour like ruf does ...

Interesting to see how various people approach their ownership of an older Boxster. I will be the last to pass any judgement. Lots of fine detailed work here. I’m into performance mods that will increase my enjoyment at the track. Others take pleasure in making aesthetic changes to their cars or updating accessories. It’s all great fun! Happy to share with you guys!

I can't believe anyone would do that to an interior

Nicely put!

Myself I just enjoy tinkering around small projects that could be easily removed or reversed. I am doing the non-performance mods at the moment while I decide which performance mods.

As far as these interiors go too much red for my taste, but to each his own.

Me too, all that red wrap gave me a headache after driving it awhile. Now:

Exactly what I thought. The interior color was a lot of work even if it doesn't match with my eye's taste. The e-brake though, that hurts to look at.

That e-brake is just happy to see you!
