plaid? ...not my cup of tea for such a large piece of the interior. maybe door panels, but not headliner. IMO

but to each his own. if I had to choose, I say #3 with the door panels done in the same. and maybe the rear deck in that dark gray color or black.

I really like plaid for some reason. dont really like leather or suede. Just thought it would be something different/havent seen before in a cobalt.

That looks like the pattern of a rug you would throw over chewed up seats in an old beater car. Don't do plaid.

if you plan it right and have it look fairly clean, it should be fine. I don't like it, but you are getting it professionally done so it wont look bad. just make it tasteful and make sure it matches and looks right. post some interior pics of your car as of now.

personally I hate vinyl. I would do a black suede, but it's your car man. lol

maybe a checker board. that'd be fun with some 12" squares...sooo tacky, but fun. lol

#1. I'm usually not a fan of plaid but it would definitely be unique.

after looking at your garage, I definitely say #3 as long as the gray doesn't conflict with the gray in your car too bad.

the gray should mostly balance out with the touch of black.

#2 would be ok if you plan on adding red accents elsewhere, #1 looks ok, just too plaid-dy to me. lol
