Default Wow!

The interior is a rich black and at night when the interior lighting is on, the stitching and metal accents offer a nice contrast. By going with AS and black, the car as a whole is kept in a two tone design (lights excluded). As someone that enjoys cold and elegant designs, I’m very happy with it and have no regrets.


WOW! In these pictures the color looks sick! It seems like it changes under different types of light...

My favorite are pretty much a tie for me. 1. Infrared with toasted caramel or, 2. Nightfall Mica blue with toasted caramel interior.

Anyone have thoughts on a white/caramel combination? I think the conventional advice is to pair white outside with black inside but my last car had a black interior and I think it's too dark now and want to go in a different direction. I'm also not a fan of the roja red. Is a light paint paired with another light color a bad idea? I want to stick with the lighter exterior paints like white/silver/platinum because I think the dark paints swallow the lines of the car too much.

I drove a BMW that was white with a caramel interior. It was a nice combo. The only thing that ruined it was that BMW decided to put carbon fiber (silver) door pulls in it which looked awful with the caramel. I had them wrapped in black.

HOPPEAN, How did you manage to get the base wheels on your LC? I am in Virginia and every LC that comes in has the Touring Pkg that requires the 20 in Chrome looking wheels. I want the wheels like you have as I like them much better. Thanks.

Just finished a 1000 mile drive in my Atomic Silver with red interior which I personally think is the best color combo. Can't drive it anywhere without people approaching me. The drive was awesome. Most comfortable seats, steering wheel design is great. Has the performance package so love the steering and short turning circle. Stereo great. No tramlining on 21" Bridgestones. Followed a BMW for awhile at triple digit speeds. Can't say enough about the car. Good in the rain also. A great daily driver!

When I ordered my vehicle I requested these as a second set of wheels. They're my winter wheels.

Here is a picture of mine.

Honestly I think SGM is the best exterior color on the car. I tried to like white but the lines are absent when you actually look at the car in person.

Goes in both tones when in the shade and out.

Direct sun;


In the shade;


Over cast;
