    hmmmmmmm, i wanted to do this also as my previous car, Golf GTI Anniversary, had the black lining and it looked very good. Let me know how you get on with finding material spray! What would you do woth sun visors, grab handles etc? Spray them too? (obviously! LOL)

    I've had mine done when I had speakers installed into the C-pillars.
    We dropped the headlining out, retrimmed it & the visors with Alcantara then got all the plastics sprayed black.

    Has made a real difference, actually makes the inside feel bigger.

    Had it all done a couple of years ago, not sure what it would cost to do now. With the way the pound/euro is at present Alcantara is now costing nearly twice what it did then.

    Sorry, don't have any pics to hand.

    My 2008 Sri-t came with black headlining standard.

    It seems that the Aussie version have slight differences than the europe specs then. My sri-t came standard with a bodykit very similar to the VXR. The only differences are the rear bumper insert, front grill is chrome (not body coloured) and rectangular slats in the bumpers inserts not honeycomb..

    and sorry for hijacking the thread.....black headlining looks 100% better
