OK...call me crazy, but I have been thinking about this. Since I've got and orange (saffron) and blue (sonic) car I've been into this blue/orange thing. Has anyone done/seen this combination? Or maybe someone could photoshop a pic with atacama floor mats against a nordkap interior.<p>If anyone wants to trade, I've got an extra set of nordkap mats that I'd be willing to trade for some atacama ones.

Re: Atacama floormats in nordkap interior (soledoc)

I might, but no refunds or returns. (Mine are new, never used)<br>That would be just hideous

Re: Atacama floormats in nordkap interior (JRL)

OK...that's 2 votes for hideous. My wife said the same thing. But I just wanted to add a little contrast. I like two tone like my old T5 interior. I definitely wouldn't got with the gobi on nordkap. I think a little orange with blue would be OK...but I can't say that until I see it either in person or photoshop. <p>How much would you be willing to sell your atacamas for?

Take a pic of your interior, and maybe someone can PS for you.<p>I know there are a couple of AMAZING guys in the c70 forum. ( I think it was there :confused)

Re: (Copeland)

I know a fellow doctor who has a V70R with atacama. Maybe I'll give her a call and set up a meeting. Ummm....how would I ask "Can I borrow your atacama for a minute?" I'm sure she'll think I'm crazy.

Re: Atacama floormats in nordkap interior (soledoc)

How about installing Gobi door panel inserts and floor mats instead. That might look cool, albeit a little unbalanced, but certainly a better combination than simply adding mismatched atacama floor mats. I think the dark blue and the creamy beige would compliment each other well. More money though, I know...<p>The one interior change I would love to make is to get a leather that closely matches the Nordkap and replace the leather on the instrument cluster. Then again there are more important things on my to-do list... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Being different is a good thing. You bought Sonic Blue after all. I say more power to you!<p>- Tryg

Something different. Hey some people got the atacama with sonic blue and it doesn't look horrible, so why not just a toucn of atacama with the blue interior themed R?<p>Still waiting for someone to photoshop this...please!

I can't find any good pics on the web to PS...<p>If you want to snap an angle of your choosing, I'm willing to do a quick PS.<p>(I'm figure it's worth my time if it will stop you from making this mistake!!!) <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (jwg)

I do like the atacama better with the grey rubber trays... Takes some of the visual impact away from the pumpkin carpet...
