Color Crisis on 2012 GT

So I have my 2012 Gt ordered and am getting close to getting my vin so my time for making changes is drawing to a close. I have my car built as below:

gt coupe
rear sensing and camera
electronics package
glass roof
kona blue exterior
6mt


Do I go with saddle or charcoal black? i love the saddle in some pictures but others it looks downright awful. Also, I kind of feel like the door leather portions with the contrast of color draw to much attention to the cheap plastic on the door panels. Anyone have some good new saddle pics they can share? i have seen just about all of them i can find through google.

split the difference and go with black and 401A with cashmere stripe on the seats.

+1 on the 401A package. Not only does it look nice in terms of color, but the better leather and better door panel trim makes a worl dof difference IMHO. It takes the feel of the interior up a whole nother level of quality.

Personally I think the saddle would clash, but thats just me.

Actually go saddle. Definitely go saddle. Going black would be even better. Yeah. You should totally go black!


By the way that suggestion has nothing to do with the fact that the original car you described is actually almost exactly what I just ordered (with 401A charcoal and blue trim)

Ok fine, I guess we can share, but you're going to have to promise not to drive north of the Mason Dixon.

As far as clashing, I think The lower portion of the seat does it in for me. I was looking at the black/ cashmere as well. When you say better door panel trim, is that just the leather or is the cheapo plastic surrounding it upgraded as well?

+1 on the black, can't go wrong with that color and if it gets dirty it's easier to hide.

You both live south of the Mason Dixon line, so he should probably get the saddle, i would have, but it wasn't an option on the CS.

Seems like I'm in the minority here, but when faced with the same decision I went with Saddle and do not regret it at all.

I'll go snap a few pictures of my interior tomorrow to give ya some more comparisons, too dark outside now to try and get anything worth showing.

If you have not seen Saddle in person then don't buy it. It looks horrible. Black looks fine. Now if you want to be crazy go for the red. But again make sure you see a car with that interior in person.

I have Kona Blue with Saddle and absolutely love it. Everyone that sees my car always comments on my interior.

All cars have black interiors... to me its boring.
