Default New Miata owner... need thoughts on bada** interior?

I just bought my first Miata on Friday -- it's a beautiful, red 1999 with Nardi wood trim and black leather on the interior. I'm thinking about adding two Nardi red leather boots (one for the e brake one for the shifter). Thoughts on adding these?

I'm also planning on getting red accented floor mats, a Nardi wood steering wheel and a Nardi wood e brake handle. What else could I do to make this car look even sweeter?

All thoughts are appreciated!

welcome.
styling is relative, but I happen to think the red floormat and checkered boot idea is terrible beyond words
It's not 1998 anymore.

Don't forget your chrome vent rings.

I'm with 18. Don't go overboard with color matching. Get some nice gauges from revlimiter and maybe one or two other unique pieces and then leave it alone. A super clean and straight interior is more impressive than a million accessories.

I think the best way to improve the interior is to add a manual shifter.

I'd start with removing the red accented floor mats, red shift boot, all things wood like the nardi steering wheel and e-brake handle, all things fake wood like your disgusting press-on nail salon dash, and that nasty automatic transmission.
