For a lot of us, we spend around a good 8+ hours per week in our cars.

What does your car interior look like?


What my interior looks like, not my car.

What car do you think has the best interiors/seats?
Generally speaking... VAG cars...


What is the best interior you've sat in?


Probably an s2k, but my mom's S60 or my friend's GTI is pretty nice.

What would you prefer for a daily driver?

B5 A4 or E36 M3



Those Vader seats looks so nice.

Just suggestions for responses.

Borrowed from Yahoo because I can't find any good pics of my former XKR's interior:


Borrowed from Adunaphel because his pic is better than the ones I have of my Series III:

I have a sneaky suspicion that we have touched on that topic before.


On the other hand I always love the opportiny to drool over Tobias' S2000.

Note the high quality fabric and plastic skull shifter. The aged quality leather and emblemed steering wheel. The padded dash adds both safety and luxury as well. Well safety for the passenger, in a crash the driver gets a rather uncomfortable steering column in the chest, which I don't think a dash, no matter how well padded, can counter.

I have since removed the stereo console. This has saved me ounces in weight, and no doubt reduced my 0-60 times dramatically.

Oh and for effect most of the gauges fog up at night. Beat that!

If we're going for "FOCUS ON DRIVING" types of interiors, nothing beats my old 84 Chevy Truck's interior. There was a wheel, two pedals and 2 levers, and lots of metal with which to impale yourself on. >.<



Now, though, I drive around in a slightly more comfortable 94 Honda, with loads of fantastic mid-90s gizmos.



Honestly, though, my favourite interior is to be found in the 2009+ Mazda 3 that a friend recently bought. Everything just seems to be in the right place, and it's not too annoying.

Mine (super clean! and for sale! buy it!):



Ideal daily driver seats would be leather buckets... something along these lines (GT3):

Comfort and support. Yay!


VAG seats tend to be very good. MkIV R32 had fantastic seats:


Audi/VW usually have very good lumbar support too, which is important to me.
