Default Which interior is your favorite?

What color interior is your favorite? Mine has been changing, with torch red being my favorite, and it always has been my fav, but the light oak is really starting to grow on me. Black used to be my 2nd favorite, but only because it would be a good color to add red to. I really don't like the all black interior (without adding any red)...it's just to much black for me. The grey, I can take it or leave it...it wouldn't be a deal breaker if I found one with this color (grey), but I am really starting to like the light oak...

Black, shale, gray... don't think I could own a (full or partial) red interior.

Some of these I haven't seen and I don't know what they look like (mag red, shale). I guess I'm mostly talking about the most common ones such as black, grey, red, and light oak...

When looking for my C5 I was initially looking for all black, inside and out. During my travels I ran across the C5 vert I have now, black, black top, and black and firethorn interior. Love it! Just enough of the Firethorn to break up all the black. Glad I found it! Talke care!

Mine is black so I removed the console, gauge surround and door handle and had them hydro dipped. The pieces have a light gray base and a carbon like design. I also had new seat covers with gray stitching. The car is T-red and it worked out well.

I would say mod red is my favorite, but I do like the black/gray interior I have in my current C5.
