I'm going to pass, looks kind of 1980's era arcade-video game-ish?? IMO makes the car look cheap.

I've never seen a C63 in the steel and never looked closely at the seats. Are the backs of OEM seats like that but black? Don't know if I like it and I am a big Star Wars fan.

yeah, the seats kind of reminds me of the Arcade driving/racing game seats. They look cool!!!!! BUT don't really match the interior of the car.... sorry, no go for me.
Is that aftermarket?

Oh, i also noticed that rear fender spoilers. What do you guys think about those??

Makes me think of hauling kids in the back seat and their shoes marking the back of the seat. Bad enough without painting the seats white!

Didn't notice those. Not to sure if I like them, maybe if they didn't cross the fender line.

those rear fender spoilers are required by law in the EU and Hong Kong cars are EU-spec. For 18+inch alloys only though, not required on the 17inch AMG 6 twin spokes.

What purpose do they serve? They add maybe 1/2 inch of width ... is that enough to cover the tire?

the seat backs are just normal black. The owner was matching the seats to his exterior color, as the original interior was just a sea of black in the C63.

Here is the inspiration from a 997 Turbo:

the EU requires that when viewed from directly above the car, no tires show beyond the edge of the fender area. Beats me if it's really useful or not

I kinda like this mod. I admit it makes the car a tad ricer-ish, but I like it nonetheless. I like the Porsche example as well. Something different, and yes, the C-class interior is indeed a "sea of black."

I have no kids and I very rarely take passengers in the rear seats, so getting them dirty wouldn't be a concern for me.

Sounds like you wanna go all-out CF with your car. Planning on CF body panels?

i don't think it's rice. it just doesn't match anything in the interior. on the 997 there are way more silver trim pieces to brighten up the interior. If there were only the seat being white I think it still wouldn't match anything.
