    Question V70 interior bits?

    Guys,

    I wonder if any of you have changed the lovely shade of beige sunvisors, grab handles and sunroof switch panel for something else? I think I read somewhere that the v70 interior bits should slot straight into my t5r?

    Right or wrong?

    I am looking to replace the headling as it's minging and just doesn't look right at all in a yellow car, so am considering something to match the alacantra colourwise. So, second question, I assume that somewhere out there are V70's with interior colours other than beige?

    Any thoughts?

    Regards,

    Al C.

    Speak to TheFlyingBanana, he fitted a black headliner into his Yellow T5-R a good while back(IIRC), you can also get the greyblack sun visors and sunroof panel/controls.

    870

    I have seen a 850 made into a v70R (870), some chap over swansea looks really good.
    But he said it was not easy.

    Well, he sort of made it into V70R, he put all the bits on, but the engine was an NA 10 valve I think. And he resprayed it bright green.

    Thanks for info guys.

    To be honest I wasn't aiming to turn it into a V70, I like the 850 as is, apart from the TOG styleee interior, well the bit above your head anyway. So was just aiming to crispen the look by changing colours.

    Cheers,

    Al C.
