From what I saw in the brochure, the red/black option comes with red seat inserts, red door pannels, red steering wheel left/right sides, red stiching on the shifter stick and it looks like the instrument needles are red also. But I saw a lot of pictures everywhere else that showed a red dashboard. Is the red dashboard for real or only an early concept? Does anyone know for sure?:confused: :confused:

The red dashboard was a part of the early non-production models. Im not sure if the insturment needles are different either (anyone know?).

It is strange that the Opel pre-production images also feature a red dashboard even though chances are it will go the exact same way as the Sky. It may have been an intention to never have the red dash but it looked too good on the concept to not include it in promotional images.

Simple enough: If you buy the red/black, the dash will not be red, at least not at this point in the Sky's production (red line? 2008? who knows?).

red dash = fade

Not sure about glare, but red seems to be the quickest color to fade. Dash boards tend to fade the fastest of any interior component. That could have been the reason to omit the red dash. :eek:

Well to reasure anyone as an owner of the red/black interior, there is no red on the dash so no concerns over fading.:thumbs:
