Interior Upgrades

Options to consider

As with all modifications, the interior is no different, it's a matter of taste - what works for some etc...

One of the frequent questions is regarding the seats so the emphasis here is firstly on seats!  The interior is a place where you spend the most time when with your MG, so it makes sense to have it as comfortable or as efficient a place to be as possible.  In some cases, interior modifications are done for performance reasons - more supportive seats, reducing the mass, making it safer etc.  In other cases it is to make it more comfortable and more upmarket.

In fact, the interior will be a very functional place with the bare minimum of aesthetics, but maximum ergonomics.  It will not have carpeting, sound-proofing or centre consoles etc, and the back seat will probably be removed on the BGT.

Whether you choose to go the one route or the other there is no right and wrong - it's your car.  Of course, if you are keen on originality, then you won't find much of use on these pages.
