The first interior upgrade is also the most functional: a set of auto seat covers. Your upholstery can soak up sweat, dirt and other grime like a sponge. Before long, your interior reflects a dull, worn look and smells like a gym bag. But with a set of high-grade auto seat covers, you can protect your interior from spills, stains and other wear and tear that can permanently ruin your upholstery…and resale value along with it.
The new Astra also can come with a special bike rack attached to the bumper. It is almost hidden when not in use, but can be slid out from its compartment like a drawer and hold two bikes. This means you don’t have to worry about lifting the bike up onto a roof rack that you have to install yourself, or attaching any other type of bike rack.
Obelisks, sphinxes, chimera, swans, laurels, wreaths adorned every piece of furniture, from dishes to clocks to insignia styled handles and locks on cabinetry.

The influence of military tents prompted rooms covered wall and ceiling, in striped fabrics and even the trimmings in heavy fringes had a very militaristic feel.

Pompeii and Hurculaneum had been excavated earlier in the century and the appreciation for classic Roman and Greek artefacts was reflected in the interior and exterior styles.
Adding dials and gauges can actually add function as well as form, allowing you to monitor engine oil pressure, temperature, boost, economy, voltages etc… Be sure to only add the dials you will use – less is definitely more otherwise your interior will end up looking like the inside of a 1980’s space ship in a B grade movie.
