Alcantara and other sacrilege
After months of searching and quite a few times insulting sellers with my lowball offers, I finally found myself a GTS! Picked it up in Texas and drove it the 8 hours to Louisiana. (I'm in for another long trip to Colorado once the DoD travel ban is lifted). Pictures attached because I'm sure you've never seen a red '97 before. I'm glad to finally be a real member of the community, and I'll do my best to share whatever helpful knowledge I pick up along my way.
Anywho, my question for y'all today is if anyone has pictures of a gen2 with an alcantara dash? Looks like there's at least two cars around, but all of the pictures I have seen are from users that haven't logged on since 2016, and they are all "in progress" pictures--nothing buttoned up. I haven't quite decided if I just want to drop a '98+ dash in or if I want to do something more drastic like alcantara, but I don't want to have to deal with the easy scratching of the early gen2 dashes (or the scratches already there from previous owners). I attached the best picture I could find, but it isn't the most telling.
I also might be interested in brushed aluminum for the radio/hvac control shroud, but I don't know how gaudy that might make things look.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
