Well, it seems I may have FINALLY nailed down a VT but nothing is 100% yet.
It a blue VT with the grey trim. I find it strange that the Blue car does not even have the option for the blue trim so I would like to see if anyone would be interested in a trim trade so I can end up with Blue on Blue.

Anyone done anything like this.. It seems to only be the front seats, door panels and center console, none of which should be too hard.

Holy cow, I have ironman silver with blue trim. I would probably be more interested in grey.

TN to OH is a little far.. But yeah, I think a LOT of the interior combos they released were dumb..
Blue / Blue was never an option and dammit.. if I get a blue car I want the blue trim, lol

Yeah, I made myself like the blue. I have yet to see another vt in all of East Tennessee.

oh man I would be all over this.... but Im in Toronto Canada. I have a Matte Grey with blue interior. I kinda like it, but I think it would look better if it was grey. All the door pannels and rear seats would have to be switched as well. There is blue stiching on everything.

I think there is a lot of people that could benefit from this..

If a couple people to get together and write a "How-To" to make this swap quicker for the masses that would be great.. If Im not happy with the interior I get I will write the tutorial when I find a trade.. But anyone that can beat me to it, have at it!

well.. Dealer called today and asked me what color I wanted and said my Blue one should be here next week.. Any serious takers on a trim trade?
I live in Marion Ohio, will travel to you if you have a place to do the swap.

This subject was a big thing for the turbo! The combos were a little odd 4 sure but i think they were more testing the waters with turbo . I dont think hyumdai realised how well the turbo would do !?!

any tips on the swap?

Im still interested in getting the blue interior in mine but havent had any trade requests.. which surprises the hell outta me.
You trade ALL pieces (Seats, Door Panels, and center console) or just the seats?

We did all of it. You dont have to swap the whole door panel the outter pieces pop off. The seats are cake 4 kinda funky bolts they are female torx. Thats the only problem if you dont have that socket. We swapped the whole console where the handles are to. That comes out in minutes 4 Philips heads, 2 10 mm bolts and 2 plastic pins. I met in a parking lot somewhere and swapped everything in about a half hour.

Awesome info man..
Is there no wiring under the seat? (For pressure sensor on passenger airbag, seat heaters, full-on if car was remote started)

Now.. Who in central Ohio wants to trade me their Blue Interior?
I'm in Delaware

Yes 2 plugs on eacg seat i believe airbags heaters lumbar that nonsense so just be careful when pulling up the seat.

Hardest part i believe i encountered was unhooking the light from the shifter(auto) not sure which you have.
