Need an opinion..I want to get new boots but I've got no idea which ones I want..have narrowed it down to two.

Shot of interior and the two types attached.

Also while that interior shot is up, what do you reckon of replacing the black piano trim with brushed aluminium?

Personally I would go with the black one, the red one might be over-powering?

Go for the 2nd one, 1st option looks abit tacky.

If you do decide to change the trim, I'd gladly do a swap with you .

I would stick with stock personally. The options you posted look a bit too aftermarket, Subaru/MOMO for my liking.

True, thank you. I didn't bother taking a second look at the all dark red one.

Is your trim silver? I was just wondering if it would look any good, or if I should keep the interior simply red and black.

I was looking for something small to change to break up the black a bit. Boots seemed the easiest thing to do that, and I didn't like the ones with dark red stitching, they looked messy.
Can you suggest anything else that might do that for me without looking too MOMO?

Keep your black trim, you would regret selling it! I have it in mine and wouldn't trade it for any other standard trim.

Piano black is the best trim and those disgusting things you posted before that need to be installed on a wheelie bin handle. Hope that helps

Thanks John
Never been too fond of that kind of material though, I'd rather keep it all leather.
