Love the original poster's plaid project. I had my Elise seats and door cards reupholstered in plaid last year. I bought the plaid fabric from scotlandshop.com They recommended the Polyviscose fabric for auto interiors since it holds up well and is easily cleaned. Here's a photo:

Absolutely love that interior!!! 馃ぉ
Glad to be a part of the tartan/plaid crew now!
I also looked into scotland shop ages ago but didn't Find any patterns that complimented chrome orange.

Just saw your car list, that's nice, still have them all? I could use that for half of my favorite cars list. Admittedly I'm not crazy about BMW 's, not that they're bad, just as a mechanic I think they're not as reliable as people think.
OP. Great look. I thought the fabric looked like it wouldn't fit when I saw it alone, but it look's great together, as do all the plaid picks afterwards, so obviously my original thought was wholly wrong.

I still have them all except for the Elise. I do agree with you on the E36 M3 but it was more of a nostalgia buy for me since they came out the year I graduated high school. I ended up buying a high mileage one that had most of the reliability issues addressed.
