Default CRYSTAL RED, What color interior?

Hi,
Ordering CRM, torn between Black or Kalahari interior. Kalahari looks tan in some pictures and much darker in others. Any suggestions?

Kalarai I think is best but black is safe. To me, straight black interiors are nice but a bit simple.

I am going with CRM and Kalahari. I agree the pictures of Kalahari are all over the place. At some point I had to make a decision as my number six at my dealer will most likely come up next month. So, Kalahari it is.

If you want the 3LT then go with Kalarai but if you are ok with the 2LT then I would choose the black or gray. I do not like the 2LTs in anything but black and gray. Too much is left black or gray in the 2LTs regardless of what the other interior colors are.

Good point. I went with 3LT because there was too much black on the 2LT.

Agreed. The one thing that is interesting with the interior design of the C7 is the way they made the 3LT version have some color variation in the dash other than black.

To me, I would like to use that even if it costs 4 grand more. It has a more interesting look.

I went with Kalahari on my Crystal Red order. I have had shades of tan in 2 of my last 3 cars and currently have black. My son mentioned something about my black interior recently and I had to stop and think because I couldn't remember what color my interior was. That never happened with either "tan" I had. Of course, maybe it is just a sign that my memory is going . The only issue I had with this combo of colors is that it reminds me of Ferrari, see pictures from another thread of the Ferrari and C7 posted together. Black is safe though. FYI, the thread is about seeing the CR at Bloomington and changing their mind about their original order, it has the best pictures of the Crystal Red that I have seen posted.

If I was getting a CRM C7 I'd go with the 2LT Ash Gray interior. As much as I wish I could, I just can't get into any shades of brown for a car interior. It's just a personal preference.

Gray is intresting. How dark a gray is it. I was having a hard time with Black or Kalahari, now Gray. Difficult choice.

Glad to see I'm not alone. I have a Monty red c6 and can't imagine it with the new gray interior, it is a very light shade of gray. Should I go with the CRM I might go with the Brownstone. If I go with Blade silver I'm leaning toward a black interior. I'm waiting til the 2016 MY anyway so I've time to play and anticipate lots of changes to the order book.

Thanks for the picture. That really is a light gray. I wish it was a bit darker. I also have a Monty red with a saddle interior. That looks good, I cant picture light gray in that car.

The C7 Gray is not at all like those pictures. It's much darker. Find a picture of all the seat colors and you will be able to see exactly how dark it is.

Sorry to disagree but I took mine at the bash and the picture shown by me an the other are spot on. Too lite for a darker red color car!

I think the Brownstone might actually be the most dramatic with CRM. I'd get some samples and test it.

Default Accurate Color-Tone Kalahairi and Gray Interior Pictures

I have seen so many interior pictures posted that show inaccurate color tone, and unfortunately some folks are making ordering decisions based on them. I agree with some of the above statements that some of the earlier pictures are lighter, some darker than they actually are. Having been next to C7's on several occasions, here are the two pictures that most accurately reflect exactly how they are in real life.

As others have said I also change mine from 2LT to 3LT and will go with Kalahari.

Out of curiosity, what would be your first choice of interior with Laguna Blue?
