Would some kind sole with an SLine Alcantara interiror be able to post some nice pics please?
Well, I was always under the impression looking at loads of cars before I bought, that there's a grey interior and a darker one - not black exactly - probably charcoal would be a better description.Bryn said:Igotone, how do you mean 'darker material' are there different shades of black?
Agreed- that looks very nice!Nem said:Personally I like the two tone idea they now offer on the TTS, black leather with grey alcantara inserts. Would certainly be my choice if I was ordering one:
Interesting, I was not aware there were different shades of black.igotone said:Agreed- that looks very nice!Nem said:Personally I like the two tone idea they now offer on the TTS, black leather with grey alcantara inserts. Would certainly be my choice if I was ordering one:
The darker/lighter interior isn't confined just to the upholstery, it extends to the colour of the interior plastics including the dash. I looked at quite a few white cars, and some have the black interior while some have the lighter grey one. I can't imagine it's just a lucky dip what colour you get, surely it would be specified at the time of ordering?
Well have a look at a few TTs on Auto Trader where you should be easily able to see the difference in the colour of the two different dash plastics. I can't imagine it's just a case of under or over exposure of the pics as the difference seems to be too obvious.Bryn said:Interesting, I was not aware there were different shades of black.
Reason I'm asking these questions is that I want the leather interior of my TTS re-upholstered in Alcantara.
I was kind of thinking it would be relatively simply just replacing the centre sections with the SLine type perforated Alcantara - I guess I'll have to try and figure out what shade of black I have first though :?
Well I hope I'm not misleading anyone with this. The problem is that when you photograph a car interior which is predominantly all one tone in the viewfinder, the camera meter mixes the tones down to 18% grey - that's how all camera meters work left to their own devices. The problem is, that if that were the case, then I'd be expecting the lighter tones in the images to be grossly over-exposed which they're really not - certainly not to the degree I'd expect.talk-torque said:Interesting this. I've always thought that my leather bits were more dark grey than black, but nothing other than black is mentioned in the brochure. Maybe the coding on the option sticker would shed some light?
