Hi Paul

You're like me - don't like the Dark Tempest.

With all that I have done to the interior of the Berlina, the one thing left that still looks ordinary is the grey centre dash and switches etc. I'm looking at painting the surrounding section of the centre stack in paino black, and the rest of the centre stack satin black, the ame as the Calais, but leaving the buttons grey because of the lettering. Can't be fussed trying to get a black 6 stack CD player as the current one works fine.

I noticed that on Calais, with the black dash, the fold out cup holders are still grey, so leaving the radio buttons, air con controls and lights/trip computer switch grey, might look ok, if not, black switches can be purchased. The instrument surround will also go piano black.

Pics to follow once completed - at least I know it wil be different to any other interior treatment I've seen on this forum.

Precisely the reason I want to change over, too. My kids' Exec and Acclaim have the same colour and since putting in the leather seats, the old centre console looks too cheap and "Exec-like".
