Personally, white face gauges arent that cool. They are just a bit cooler than the ones that came with the car in the first place. Im in the same boat as you, I want something more in my interior. Im going for some real gauges to replace the stockers, a racing steering wheel, corbeau seats/belts/brackets, a new carpet, maybe some subs (gotta do something since the rear seat is getting ditched) and maybe a stereo to go with it. I want my car to be as light as possible (all in the name of speed/performance) so I wont be adding anything excessively heavy even though I'll drive it often.
You can always paint or dye your interior to be different, just a thought. Ive seen some all black interiors look sick with the trim pieces painted silver. Ive considered ditching my 2-tone black/gray interior for all black with that silver painted trim, I like it that much.
Let us know what you do and please give us some before and after pics,
