I've been lookin at a 300M Special, but I'm leary of the fine detals of Chrysler interiors. Seems the interior of the 300M (NOT C) is comparable to my car....I bet the smaller Chryslers make an attempt at a nice interior similar to the relationship between the Intrigue/Aurora...know what I mean?
The interior is very nice IMO, for a base model sedan. It is tight-fitting, the seats are comfortable (Sebring has optional leather seats with suede inserts too. I test drove one with those). Gauges look nice, chrome trimmed bezels, plastic does not feel/look cheap. I like the interior better than the Alero I looked at in terms of dash and trim. Plus I've read about peoples' problems with the dash board wrinkling in the Alero. I don't have to worry about things like that with this car. I also noticed that in the Alero many of the buttons/switches were worn already. Both cars have the same miles too. I think GM probably did a half-a$$ job on the Alero from what I've read. The Aurora on the other hand, is much better.
I think my first mods are going to be in the interior. I'll probably add the leather wrapped shifter/ e-brake handle, chrome door handles, and other small accents.
I have a 60/40 split folding rear seat, 3 point middle seat belt (not that that matters to me really, just something different), two-tone black/light gray interior, power driver'* seat, CD player that looks AND sounds nice (buttons are not cheap looking). I'll show it to you soon. Until then, here are some sample photos....
PJ, thanks for the compliment
I've always liked the newer Sebring/Stratus styling. I like the Coupe models too, but I prefer 4 door so I went with this. I am more partial towards the Sebring than the Stratus too. The styling is simpler and a little more refined (no extra taillight/reflectors on the back like the Stratus).
