I've only owned blue cars (3 to be exact) my whole life and wanted a nice blue like USB, but settled on ultra white as my 2nd choice since I'm a fan of the white/black theme. I'll probably have my car painted blue when I get tired of the white. I did get the interior color I wanted, black.

Ultra white/black here. It was the color combo I had to have and I still love it.

I think Matador Red Mica is a great color choice and wish I would have taken the time to look for one. But when the color combo I wanted was on a truck heading to Houston, I didn't think twice!

UW/RR here and after seeing the matador red at the dealer, would've gotten that instead.

Have not seen a MR out in the wild yet!

Default red

I have been looking for the white with flaxen interior but I would love the red too. Until I read this thread, I had no idea the red interior was so popular. (and available) I am in Florida and I have not seen it much down here. Is it more area specific??

Dealers from SD all the way to LA has only one UW/RR combo in their own storage. That's what they told me, unless they lied just to get me to buy it ASAP.

sure, here's a pic from a month or so ago -

i know it doesn't show the interior well, but it'll do. i have the luxury package, technology/navigation package, mark levinson system package, amongst others, and so i have dark brown wood accents along with parchment leather -- NOT nuluxe. ugh.


edit: here's a pic from a few minutes ago taken with my iphone so the colouring is a bit off.

Still love my car though. Especially when freshly washed or at night in stealth mode.
X2 but my OCD has me detailing the car more than ever. I live in a high rise condo and have assigned spaces. All my neighbors know me as " the guy with the really shiny car ". Black is hard to keep clean. I dedicate a portion of my income to detailing products and a variety of wax. Oh well

thank you! it really is a great colour. that said, the more i drive around in the car the more i notice other cars that are of similar hues and such and it's super annoying because it's a relatively rare colour, 'relatively' emphasised. not to say the colour isn't beautiful; it is, but i wish there weren't so many other marques using nearly-identical colours.

my previous IS was starfire pearl and pearl whites are more difficult to spot than these sort of ruby reds. pure whites are all over the place, but pearl really is a bit more unique.

Silver lining metallic w/light grey leather and grey wood trim. No regrets, though there are times when the black plastic on the door linings take on a navy tinge instead of black.

I think it's funny that you're downing nuluxe--it's actually softer and more durable than real leather. . .

i love my Nebula Grey, but man, it's almost as hard as black to keep clean. I see a layer of dust after just 1 day
