I love how the interior is all black with red stitching on the SX, but has anyone ever looked up and seen the roof? Its so misleading to me... All intense and black on bottom then one glance up and I am instantly bothered!

Anyone had the same idea?? And if so how should one go about solving this problem??

reupholster the headliner... im lucky cuz my family trade is autobody repair.. so ive learned how to paint cars and fix the body and even reupholster the interior. thats really the only thing you can do. shouldn't be too expensive..

Putting in a dark roofline will make your car feel and look dreary and gloomy - leave it the way it is. Theres nothing wrong with it after all - it convinced you to buy it in the first place. :)

Ever seen a car with a dark / black roof liner? Man looks really good and make it look sportier IMO.

I personally don't mind the lighter roof liner, would I prefer it black? yes. Would I pay to have it darker, no. Also, what the about the pillars with the air bags? How do you deal with those?

Disconnect the battery terminals and when prying them off be very careful not to pull on the airbags themselves or to puncture them.. Also may sure your not giving a lot of static electricity or you could set them off....
