    Which interior with Slate?

    Which interior with Slate Grey exterior? Natural brown or cocoa? Will have ceramic brakes (yellow) if that matters. I am quite indecisive about it, looking for opinions. Natural brown offers more contrast (I think), though I really like cocoa...

    Help!

    Ps. Sorry for multiple posts on various versions of this obsessive topic for me.

    Re: Which interior with Slate?

    Natural Brown, the quality of the leather is much better than with Cocoa and IMHO its a much nicer color. Cocoa has that weird marble look to it.

    Interesting, I've never been clear on the difference in the leather quality, thanks.

    Yeah, the Natural Grey is also that same higher quality and may be nice with Slate...

    Re: Which interior with Slate?

    Black looks best!

    Re: Which interior with Slate?

    While I agree the Natural brown is very nice looking and is a high quality leather, with Slate the best looking interior color BY FAR is the Cocoa.

    Re: Which interior with Slate?

    Natural brown can look a bit yellow. There should be plenty of cars you could see with natural, so I suggest you check it out. Personally, I would go with cocoa or natural grey, and if you go with natural grey, get a few touches of carbon.

    Have you actually seen that combo?

    Pictures?

    Re: Which interior with Slate?

    Natural brown seemed to look a little yellow on the cheaper looking 996 interiors, however I have seen several 997s w/Natural Brown and there is no tinge of yellow at all. The appearance is like the leather of a nice baseball glove. IMHO one of the best choices for grey/black/midnight blue cars.

    Natural brown is beautiful in the 997's.

    And RED ... like mine!

    Re: Which interior with Slate?

    My slate TT will come with classic (if not boring) black. I almost went with cocoa but I decided against it because of the "marble" appearance. It looks a little too phony, almost like it was painted on. But the COLOR itself is perfect for slate IMO. Ascot would be the ideal choice but too much $$$ for me (for just cosmetics).

    Here's a few shots of mine:

    Agreed. Cocoa seems to make the car's interior look the most expensive of any of the interior colors.

    Re: Which interior with Slate?

    Definitely check out the brown. The quality is in the top 5% of all the leathers. (That's their figure).
