I see your NSX, and raise you an NSX-R:

nice, but i still prefer the simplicity of the regular NSX interior. i guess you have to sit in it to truly appreciate it. i also like the 5th gen prelude and integra type r interiors as far as hondas are concerned.

The abstract "respect" there is redundant with the rest of the statement. It's not that they treat something well because they respect it. They treat things well, and that is called "respect" to avoid having to describe the treatment in detail.

There's a little too much red in there for me. But I love the NSX/NSX Type R. There's 3 that go past my friend's house on sunny weekends. Talk about a distraction. I'd love to just sit inside an NSX just to say I've actually did.

Yeah, but I'm perforated...for whatever that's worth.

A 1987 Cadillac, similar to the one I had except with a digital speedometer and a blue color that doesn't look very good:

A tiny picture of another 1987, this one in my color scheme and with my speedometer:
Image

Not visible in any of those is the digital fuel economy display to the left of the steering wheel, but the digital climate control to its right is visible in the second large picture. Those two digital displays together provided more information than a ScanGauge II can in a modern car, if you knew the key combination to get into diagnostic mode.

I like the 2007 STI limited interior a whole lot more. I'm pretty sure I'd get sick of all the blue in the regular interior (although it really wouldn't be that big of a deal).

The Evo IX interior may not look very impressive, but it's simple, functional and very comfortable:

Not capable, or not willing?

I think that Mitsubishi interior you posted looks a lot nicer than the Subaru interior you posted.

Both. When I tried, I was awful at it. Often I didn't try. There may have been a bit of a symbiotic relationship between my inability and my unwillingness...

I'm both more capable and more willing now.

that nsx interior is mint. one major thing for me also is handbrake placement, beside the shifter not behind kthx. I hate jumping in other cars now that have handbrakes behind the shifter it just feels like its in the wrong place :? the mr2, silvia, nsx, supra, fd are a few but see the trend here... good cars have good handbrake placement. change into first flick the hand across onto the handbrake and launch all easy

I'm not crazy about all of it, but I love the varied thickness of the steering wheel and how the gauge cluster is perfectly shaped to be viewed through the steering wheel on the S2000.

Love the C3 Vette too, it may not get a lot of love, but I'm a fan.

I too like that new Saab interior, except for the pattern on the trim. I know it's not a carbon fiber pattern, but it's close enough to make me squeamish. Still, very nice.
