Looks cool, but having the ABS, TCS, Airbag, and CEL lights on reduce the cool factor for me.

That's an easy fix, remove the bulbs. I'm going to look into this too honestly. Anything I can do to update the fisher price interior of the 94-04 is good in my book. Although this would probably cost as much when as is said and done as a Florida 5.0 cluster with all Autometer gauges pre-wired and ready to go.

Although I shouldn't talk bad about the 94-04 interior. I've spent a LOT of time in them and I have grown to be very fond of it kind of like you are fond of an ugly dog you've owned for a long time.

^ yeah I love my car but everyone I know has a newer vehicle and the interior of theres makes mine feel so out dates... This kid has such a nice set up with the 2005 pod that it looks possible... not sure how much work switching the wire harness would be or the fit but today I will research this and post findings on this thread...

Meh. It looks nice, but I'll stick with my retro style Bullitt gauges (or switch to the Mach 1 one for the 7k redline)

yeah i mean they add like 10-20 hp a piece id search ebay and create a collage of stickers that describe you.. But on a serious note it seems like one of those things that would be harder than its worth. But if you could do it id expect a writeup with really good pics!

This really ahs nothing to do with the illusion of horse power!..
The 99-04 mustang is a very nice car, however the interiors are
cheap and starting to look dated compared to newer vehicles!!..
With the updated gauge's and a few minor changes to the interior.. The new edge mustang would be timeless imo

I actually really like the majority of my interior. One thing I would change is the material of the dash and those trim parts that everyone likes to paint.

The interiors are functional and, for the most part, have no issues with cracking or peeling or warping like some other cars. Definitely not the worst interior out there and the 01-04 console really helps make it feel a little newer since you can drive to work with a coffee that ins't a bump away from being in your lap.

I have an 02 and a 12, and while the 12 looks more modern, the 02 is actually more comfy and roomy.

I definitely think my 02 interior is alright I sell cars and ill tell you I have yet to find an 02 with as many miles I have and the interior is still together not faded or cracked. And in all reality who buys a mustang for fuel economy/ creature comforts or for a "modern interior" I know I didn't or I would have bought another Volkswagen.

no one mentioned fuel economy..
and I don't need the "creature comforts"
I just think the interior isn't great at all.. sure it is functional and isn't hideous or anything. However if there is ways to improve it without adding tacky billet accessories or painting your plastic pieces body color then I am all for it.
If there are ways such as how you can put 05+ seats in a new edge and keep a "stock" like appearance but have the car improved then why not.

and no I didn't buy my mustang for its accessories, I bought it because it suits my driving style.. I drive my car the way it should be driven and I also use it as a DD, so yeah I care a little about the interior since I spend a lot of my time in there.

Omg THANK YOU! I knew I wasn't the only one out there who can't stand the billet everything ppl put in these cars. Nothing beats a stock clean interior. Billet looks cheap with the exception of a few factory pieces.




When I got my car (and this isn't even as bad as a lot of them).






After I de-billeted it and pulled the godawful trim rings out of the cluster. I also did a few other things...

No hard feelings sorry if I sounded rude but i didnt feel like typing a page long full post to sound nice. But a few things you could do is get some custom seats done maybe black leather with a cloth insert of blue on the inside so you don't slide around and its subtle but a very nice touch

The tighter fit of my 12 keeps me feeling more planted, especially around curves. but overall, I think my 02 fits me better. it just feels more correct and better for a longer drive. My 02 is just all black inside. clean and simple...thats how i like it.

There is nothing wrong with billet trim pieces, as long you don't go over board. If you are just gonna do the light switch, ac knobs, e-brake, and shifter handle that should be enough. That's what I did. It just brakes up the monotony of the all black in my case, and trust me black on black is allot of black. Now on the other hand exterior wise all black for me except wheels.

Boostr post a picture of your billet interior..

I think the rings that go around the gauges in the cluster and the ring that goes around the shifter are the only two pieces I would like to have... However I would paint them black lol .. I just feel like the pieces are meant to be there but not in a flashy way.

Yours is not bad. What I was talking about when I posted is billet EVERYWHERE from gauge rings to door switches to defroster switch to steering wheel switches etc...

My 04 has a billet light switch, sterling tilt, and door locks. I'm definitely switching it back to stock parts eventually, I just have bigger fish to fry at the moment
