After deciding that the standard interior looked too dull, I decided to paint some console trim parts up, although I used vauxhall burgundy, as it was cheaper than getting hyundai burgundy specially mixed up, and it won't be a direct colour match anyway. Also got a better pic of my red interior light.

Colour match? Its vauxhall (sorry about the language) burgundy. Had gone around carparks parking next to burgundy cars from other manufacturers and vauxhall was closest. And honestly with the interior you can get away with minor shade differences.
And don't bother with the poll, got no plans on a Gen3 yet, providing it doesn't get too rusty I'm keeping as long as possible, may even drop a V6 into it if the engine dies.

Nope, just found out what burgundys halfords stocked, (getting it mixed would cost 2wice as much and probably be a worse match) then compared my options.

They make the whole car glow red, Donna got blue in the Puma, but thats because she was able to get Blue LED bulbs to fit, the Gen1 is an odd size bulb, and I couldn't find any LED one that fit, so did that instead. Also used same brake light tape to give a red tint to my T-badges.

They will fit where the back seats used to be, driving the back axle! Now thats a project for me, may take some time though, will have to remove car from the road for a while. Then I'd need another Gen1 as a daily drive.

Not twin engined, a just 1 V6 in the back. Thats a nice plan that'll just be too much for me to pull off.
