My car had a blue interior and I want to change it to red. I called to order a carpet kit and I was presented with 2 options. Black or charcoal or red. Which one would you go with?

Polaris on the outside.

It's really just a matter of taste, but I'd go with black or charcoal. Full red interior can be a bit "much", but nothing wrong with that if you like it.

You mean the rear parcel shelf? If so I'd go black vinyl matching the other dash vinyls as originally delivered. Red is a color that looks great but can be overdone easily.

I agree with the charcoal carpet, too. I think that would be a nice combination with the rest of the palette as described.

How about all three. Imagine. Then rotate the dice, the worry beads and the rosary beads. When I was a hotrodder, drag racing my way through adolescence in the late 50s/early 60s, guys would ride through the Eat 'n Park car hop joint after an evening in the drive in with their girl friend's bra hanging from the mirror.

Ah, sweet bird of youth!

It’s not just you. I always thought my original two tone brown carpet looked dirty so I replaced it with solid black.
