    That would be something I would have to see in person to get a real feel for.

    Well, this is just my opinion, but there is a reason no production car comes with suede on the wheel. It just wont wear well, and doesnt look right on the wheel anyway.

    Many high performance production cars DO come with suede wheels...

    As for the headliner, I'd need to see it in person to get a feel for the look. If it were a darker headliner, I'd definitely be all for it...

    I love it! I've always thought the light gray headliner in our cars seemed out of place in a black car and really only matched with the light gray interior. I'd do this in a heartbeat.

    I assume you painted all of the plastic panels (lights, handles, etc.) in the headliner with black vinyl paint?

    Whoever did the work did a good job. If I did it I would have to go a black suede for I have the black and red interior..
