Yeah the blue dash and full blue door cards are too much.

Were there different Recaro packages for different years or something? The only parts that are blue on my interior are the Alcantara seat inserts, the sides of the center console, and the stitching on the dash.

I've seen a few references to blue dashes and door cards and it's got me scratching my head, 'cause my Recaro package doesn't have anything like that.

There was only 1 Recaro option for the Gen 2.. which you have.

Now for the Gen 3 (which this thread is in) the new Recaro interior isn't just Blue Alcantara inserts. When you get the Recaro seats it's all blue (2 tone actually).. the Alcantara, the leather and part of the stitching are blue, the other half of the seat stitching is orange. The entire door cards, dash pad and center console lid are also blue. Hell, even some other plastic trim pieces are blue.

Ford should go all in with their 70s blue theme...throw some chrome ash trays in the doors and make sure the line for gear display never lines up with the gear your in...

Let's keep this thread going. This article, https://www.motorbiscuit.com/2021-ford-bronco-changing-coolest-accessory/ gives a couple of examples about changes Ford has made before the upcoming release of the Bronco.

I have a deposit down on one and I didn't want the bull bar because of how it blocked "BRONCO" on the grill. I still don't like it how they changed it according to the picture in the article, but at least it doesn't completely block BRONCO, and it shows that we may be able to have some influence.

Keep the votes and comments coming!

The poll results are pretty clear that Recaros should be black, and 37s should be available without Recaros.

If they (Ford) are watching, they should be changing their Recaro order...lol.

Maybe the Raptor ordering and production delays are due to sourcing black Recaros and not due to sourcing semiconductors?...lol

HEY FORD! Are you getting this?
