Interior A-pillar and Headliner trim
 
Hello, I have charcoal black leather seats and charcoal interior, however the interior front A-pillars, healiner, and much of the other trim inside is "dune" or "tan" colored. Is there anyone who sells trim kits for this? It would be nice to get a darker color....

Thanks. [thumb]

See if you can order those from an ST.

^^That. Or paint it.

yea the ST's have that, but will it fit properly? I'm a noob when it comes to cars and/or modding so I need someone to hold my hand...
And if it does fit, does it go on top of the current trim or does it replace the trim? I'd be afraid to do it myself.
thanks.

It would need to replace the trim as if it fits it would mount the same way that the original trim does. From looking at the cars they appear to attach the same way, but I'm not aware of anyone else trying this just yet.

I just noticed that you have a sedan, rather than a hatch. I'd imagine that would be the only reason that my suggestion might not work...

The front pillar trim might swap over, but the head liner will not as it is different between the sedan and the hatch as the hatch is 6.9" shorter over all and it goes all the way to the rear of the car.

thread revive! and the airbags are behind the a-pillars so.... aw well.
but do I need to remove the headliner to replace the dome light bulbs with LEDs?
I have seen one guy on FF who painted his headliner black or something haha
