OK, I'm 99% decided on the grey paint, so I just have to decide on the leather, then I'm done, and can lock-in.
Are there any good photo's of the grey leather? I've looked at all the threads that mention 'grey leather', but aside from a couple of shots of the stand-alone seats next to each other, I can't find any good shots from actual production models.
My resistance to black is that it's kind of a boring color (I've always had black, except for a red in an early SLK), and will get hot in the Texas sun, as my car, during the day, will be outside in a very exposed parking lot. I think I'd like the grey, as long as it's not too washed out in color. I'll be going with the matte obeche trim, so I don't want the car to look 'dull'. The tan, I think, is just too orange for my personal taste. I know the design studio is way off, but in many of the photos I've seen, I'm not sure how well it would go with the grey exterior.
