Am I right in thinking that the leather interior on the F is better than on the TF? Hard to explain but I recently saw a photo of an F's interior and the quality looked far superior to anything I've seen in a TF....was it a customised interior?

I have no idea, all my experience is with Alacantra with just the leather bolsters. Much nicer in my opinion than sticky leather :)

I have to say i did like the leather seats in my F, they had the MG logo embossed on the headrest and the little map pockets at the back, it was the singed thighs in summer that i didnt like!! Of course there was no leather cubby hole like GG has though.

No, I'm not talking about the seats....I'm more than happy with my lather/alcantara seats as they're gorgeous!..its Colin WW's interior (F Reg board)....the cream leather with contrast stitching down the centre....see attached pic (hope Colin doesn't mind!!!).Its drool-makingingly gorgeous! I want it in grenadine leather in Aphrodite!

Is this a rather expensive mod he's had done?

I don’t think any F’s came out the factory like that.
So its something Colin has had done himself??? It looks so classy and beautiful - I love that look.

Ah yes, that is aftermarket, i cant remember how much it was, not as scary as you think seeing as how much time and effort goes into doing the job!!

Colin's looks like a Mike Satur interior retrim. Have a look on Mike's site for all the details & prices. Basically he can retrim your interior in almost any colour combination you want. I beleive Mike also did the interior trim on Scarlet Fever.
Some bits are not that expensive, but once you start covering the dash, doorcards and centre tunnel etc the labour costs involved increase due to there complex shapes and the amount of stitching needed.

I was under the impression that colins interior was a tester done by the mgf centre. They have done a lovely job tho. Talk to victoria!
