    My configuration on my GTS is Blue TDF with beige tradizione. Leather inserts, stitching and cavallino are in Azzurro Santorini.

    Was debating making the seatbelts blue as well vs. leaving them standard black. Thoughts on that? Will it look cool or out of place.

    I also vote for blue, but,

    Just keep in mind doing them in blue makes the seatbelts another attention point- vs- in black they are just seatbelts and you will ignore them.

    Looks like colored seat belts are available for the bargain price of $956...I'm going to take a trip to the dealer and see what the blue looks like. Sounds like lots of you think it would be cool.

    Staining and dirt maybe an issue. I say black. You could spend the $959 another way?

    While that trivia, amount could be wisely invested in women or alcohol… you’ll later spend more than that changing a part to carbon fiber, so go ahead and get the cool seat belts now. :)

    @cmargosi It depends on whether you're doing the dash, rear wall etc. in blue. If yes, then blue belts. If standard black, then stick with black.

    seat belts are like a light switch on a wall. they should disappear. seat belts are not a design element.
    do people routinely have white walls with red light switches and wall sockets?

    I went with Cinture Rot (Red) seatbelts on Rossa Corsa with Nero specific design seats with red leather insert seats GTB. It looks sharp. However, for my incoming GTS, I chose to stick with standard black seat belts. I did this because while exterior color is still Rossa Corsa, I chose to go with cuiou racing seats with red leather on the center. To keep the focus on seat, I chose not to go with any colored seat belts. In summary, choose based on where you want to draw the attention and whether the contrast makes sense.

    I have Blu stitching on Cuiou and Blu seatbelts. Looks fantastic I think. It is a dark blue belt, though. I’ll try to snap a picture and post if you like.

    Thank you for posting this, super helpful. I am not doing the rear / dash in Blue as I thought it was a bit too much in the configurator. I don't know if the blue belts will then stick out. That being said, it looks sharp. @jumpnjohn, a photo of your car would be helpful if you have the time....

    Another couple of pic's for you including Azzurro Santorini leather this time. This is a very bright shade of blue leather and in anything other than bright sunshine it looks a very different tonal shade to the TDF paint which looks much darker in duller lighting conditions.

    Are you perhaps thinking I might be better served with a different accent color for seat inserts? If so, any suggestions?

    It's all personal choice. I stopped bringing the outside colour into the interior several years ago as it's something I had started doing in my cars around 1999/2000 so it had run it's course for me but I can fully understand the appeal for others. I try to use more neutral accent colours now on the interior. It all depends on the look you are wanting to create and which seat type you are going for.

    Here is TDF against Santorini in duller lighting. Santorini is quite a bright shade of blue against Beige Tradizione.

    Kind of wondering if I'd be better served with Blu Medio on the leather inserts...that blue is very light, it certainly didn't look that light in the configurator at the dealership.
