Question plasti dip instead of spray paint?

I want to paint my interior, like other members have done, and I just wanted to get an opinion from you guys. I was thinking of maybe trying plasti dip in stead of using traditional spray paint. I think the texture of plasti dip would feel cool and it could be taken off if I don't like it. So, what do you think?

Sounds good. I'd try it and see how it goes. You can also try and get the interior off an 2009-2011 1.6.

Is there any difference between the 2008 interior and the 2009 interior? I mostly want to do the center console and the panels around the guages/side vents (they are silver in my car and feel really cheap and are scratched)

The area around my A/C vents(not the gauges) is flat black but thats because I have the 1.6 model, not because of the years. Hopefully Rob will chip in and comfirm this.

By the way, the 1.6 model was introduced in 09(reason why I said 09 and not 07 or 08).

The area around the A/C vents should be silver, unless you have the base S.

Actually, it is silver. Same with the steering wheel...silver and black:

We have the same color so I've noticed the difference. And thats cool. I love the black trim features.
