What are your thoughts on the interior?

So my wife likes the black interior, but I'm on the fence with black or saddle. Now that the restriction will be lifted on Feb. 10 I was thinking of changing my order. What do you guys think?

Definitely saddle... but I think mineral gray/saddle is the better combo. Silver screams 'rent me,' I think...

Re: What are your thoughts on the interior?

I was all set on the Mineral / Saddle combo but after seeing a mineral / black combo that's what I ordered. Although the saddle is very nice I think the black with the wood accents and the gray piping is a classic look, one that I won't grow tired of after the newness wears off.

Not to upset anyone that likes silver but it does scream "rental car" My order of preference, if I didn't order and had to shop off the lot was Mineral, Black, White, Charcoal, Red then Silver.

I too went with the mineral gray/black interior. Was on the fence between it and saddle. Then the sales guy tried to convince me that beige was the way to go (this ths was a couple weeks ago, and I think he had a heads up on saddle not being available). I went with the beige initially, but chnged to black after seeing it at another dealers lot. I think I'll be glad I did, especially since that was my wife's first choice.

Re: What are your thoughts on the interior?

My opinion... I do not think the saddle would look so great with Bright Silver, paired with Mineral Gray I think it looks sharp. And, I think it is too drastic with a Black exterior.

If I was set on Bright Silver, I'd go with the black.

Re: What are your thoughts on the interior?

I think silver exterior kind of hides a lot of a cars features. I like a car that blends in a bit but not so much that I can't find it at the airport.

If it was between black and saddle I would go black. I hate the hue of the saddle leather, I just think its an ugly color. I like the darker browns in some other cars (like tobacco leather in BMWs) but this brown is too orange.

And I thought I was the only one here that thinks the saddle looks bad/cheap. I too prefer the darker browns. The saddle/black combo just doesn't look right IMHO.

I'm going to order Dark Charcoal exterior and frost interior. Black interior would be too dark. I generally like the browns but I agree that the saddle is on the orange side of things. Would be great to have something between frost and saddle. Oh well. Decisions, decisions.
