For refrence, this is what the interior looks like on a Fusion Orange Holden Monaro:
Originally, I thought that's what I wanted to do, but after seeing pictures of those interiors from Australia, I'm not a fan of it. To me, the colors are off. I love red, blue, I've seen a yellow interior with the full seat inserts and it looked GREAT! I don't know, but when it comes to orange....None of the above. Copy the Fusion Orange Monaro style.
I assume your car is orange?
I voted for option 1. I prefer stitched seams vs. piping, and the orange inserts look good.
I could also go for option 3, but change the piping to stitching.
WOW! I really like it in blue! With the matching interior panels, that really sets your interior off. I imagine that looks better in person. Unfortunately, I don't care for the seats when they are in the Holden orange color.Here's what I went with. Same company.
If you go with lseat instead, you get full leather and gto embroidery. They might be a bit baggy though.

They do have both copper and silver stitching available. I'm probably thinking that will be a good choice. I'm also going to contact a few local shops and see what they would charge for a custom job. I'm sure it will be more.Have you looked into lseat? Maybe they could do the silver/copper embroidering you want. They definitely do black.
Either that or orange hexagonal or diamond stitching. The only thing wrong with the diamond stitching, is it's kind of a fad right now. There are a few Aussie's who have done some custom interior work and gotten diamond stitching. There are quite a few cars I've seen who have it-especially on car show circuits. I believe there were some Holdens, where diamond stitching, but I think those were on the VE / VT platforms. I don't want something too CRaY-crAy. Just the area where the insert would be.Orange perforations! Keeps it subtle without eye bleeding orange inserts imo.
Those monaro seats are fugly
This was my first inclination. What I'm probably going to do is either orange insterts, or I may have orange & tangerine hexagonal stitching done for the insert (and then for the door cards - to match).So why not do it like the example posted above where it has orange inserts but the top insert in the back is black? Best of both worlds from what you've been saying you want.
Those would breathe better! I'd bet you could get some sort of seat made using some sort of cloth. It would probably be cheaper and easier to install.Diamond isnt my thing. But my preference is perforated (id rather have cloth seats any day). Like the hex pattern though.
