For me thats YUCK YUCK YUCK !

The seats look good but the beige dash and fake wood inserts are simply YUCK !

Why was the hand brake lever and air-con knobs surround spared the beige / wood finish ?

All was looking good. Then I saw the wooden finish on doorpads, centre console and AC vents. Fell off the chair and fainted out of shock. The wooden finish looks hideous KP.

umm- sorry to say but it completely goes against the character of the car

and those fake wood panels look a bit too jarring ( Getzish) . the seat covers could have been fitted better. looks a bit loose.

again sorry to not have any positive comments

What is nice: Steering Wheel Cover & Seat Covers
What is not so nice: The fake wood stickering.

All OK but that wooden finish on the ac vents,dash,door trims is spoiling the look, and why he had gone for that funny combo beige with grey.

Viddy and NC !

No hard feelings here. Even i'm not a big fan of beige interiors.
Will be getting carbon fibre finish for my Getz soon.

Cheers

The beige actually looks nice and so do the seats INMHO. The wood trim is really bad. It may have looked nicer if it were not so yellow. It could have been a darker color.
The middle of the steering wheel looks out of place now. Was the dash and surfaces just painted ?

Even I might be interested in getting that done for my Swift! How much will it cost for a black and silver type combo ?

The color treatment looked fine till one lays their eyes on the trimmings on the center console as well as A/C vents. They look horrible, and more like butterscotch icecream.

The incomplete treatment to the stering wheel also takes away from the positives. Besides these, it looks ok to me.

These mods were done on a white Swift? IMO, black interiors suit a white Swift more, while beige interiors would certainly suit a red Swift.

i like black/grey interiors on swift more or can say we are use to seeing it in black/grey, probably that's the reason this beige interior is looking awkward

I wonder how long the paintwork will last in the summer heat. But all in all, I would say it makes the interior look fresher and lighter than the all-pervading black original. Just don't look at the wood finish.
