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.

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

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

I'm liking number 1. Honestly I don't have enough balls to do this haha. But it could turn out to be a good idea. Very unique. When will this installation occur and are you doing just the headliner?

fabric is not usually too expensive. I suggest buy more than you think you could possibly use. because in my experience 9 times out of 10 if you do need/want more, when you go back they wont carry or have it anymore. I say go for 3 yards or more if you decide to do more than just the headliner in it.
