Default Stratus gray or parchment interior for rx350?

What do you think of these 2 interiors... they are both equally beautiful to me! I feel like so many of the models have black interior which doesnít excite me... feels too depressing for me. Iím looking into getting atomic silver or white rx, All the atomic silvers on the lot come in black interior so I have to wait for one (460h though) thatís coming in at the end of the month with a gray interior. If I want anything other than black interior for the atomic gray then I have to sacrifice 20 inch rims which for me is a must. The white has gray or black interior for choices With all the options I want so they are holding the white/gray one for me. But they also have a white w/parchment 450h if i decide to go hybrid

This is such a personal choice. Personally, I would never own a dark/black interior. As you say depressing, hot, shows every piece of lint, makes the interior look smaller. We have parchment in both our silver lining exterior ES and RX. Friend came over last weekend who just bought a one year old RX 350 white with black interior. We spent three hours detaining it. Love the white exterior. After spending time cleaning the black interior was so appreciate of getting in mine. His RX is beautiful but just not for me.

Yup! The black isnít for me either. So Iíll either get white with grey interior, parchment interior or will wait for the atomic silver in gray interior. Also quick poll.... atomic silver or white ?

Default Black all the way

Iíve got the eminent white pearl exterior with the black interior and itís absolutely perfect. The gray and parchment show wear and tear, stains and scuffs way more than black and after having gray in the last two cars Iíve owned, Iíll never go back for those reasons.

White/Black for us. We test drove the parchment interior and didn't like it. We also viewed the gray one, although nice, we have a 6-year-old and it's going to be rough trying to keep it clean. It's definitely owner preference.

The light colored interiors will look awful with wear unless nobody sits ever sits in the seats. White with black interior for me - always. Personal choice so get what YOU prefer.

Agree on personal preference. I can't do light colored interiors just based on jean transfer and them looking dingy over time. I like the look of a black interior, but it does get warm.

Forget being dirty. You ever see what blue jeans do to light colored leather
