Is it illegal to paint your car interior?

Hi there, I just bought a 2016 suburban with a black interior and I hate it. I want to paint it yellow. The seats. The dash. The steering wheel. Everything. My only issue is if it's legal or not.

    Your car, do it if you want. However, you must be sur eyou want to keep it for a long time, becuae you will make it virtually unsaleable. I've only once been in a car with a yellow interior, (a Lambo at a track day). It looked awful although it was very dirty.

    Depends on the law where you are. Which country or state etc do you live in?

    It might be bad to paint the seats, you might ruin the covering. Get advice about anything soft.

    It is perfectly legal.

    You can do it with out the heavy hand of the law grabbing your collar.

    But you are going to make your car look like a complete mess and utterly trash the value down to a big fat zero!

    It is legal, but MOST of the interior can't be painted effectively.

    It is legal but I think a dumb idea.

    Not illegal, but stupid. There's not a paint you could buy that would stand up to the flexing of the seat. Getting anything to stick to the steering wheel and not have it rub off would be extremely difficult. Buy seat and steering wheel covers.
