Default Need help with colors please

our dealer called and said there was not a Pruis available in our choice, silver pine mica with bisque interior, unless we special ordered from Japan and that would take 4-5 months, so we'd loose the tax break. he has a silver pine with grey interior coming. Has anyone seen the grey interior?? is it s dark grey or light grey? how would it look with the silver pine? The second choice he can give us is a driftwood pearl with bisque interior. Anyone have this combination? I think this combination may look good....

It's just rather difficult to make such a color decision without having ever seen one, so my wife and I need some help, or even your opinions will be valued. thanks in advance.....

Many of those colors are available on other cars, so your dealer should be able to show you the colors, even if it is not on a Prius, and not in the combination you desire.

The grey is dark, and very agreeable, in my opinion. Have you tried other dealers in the area? Dealers typically trade cars with other dealers, though the Prius is hard to come by.

rangerdavid,
Although not as accurate as seeing the real thing, the Toyota site shows quite well how the dark gray (that's what they call it) interior--in fabric and leather--looks.

Criuise any parking lot, and you can see almost any color/interior combination that's available, Trader Joe's or Costco are sure bets. My advise: the Bisque, beige, or whatever shows dirt and stains rather quickly. I really wanted gray, but setled for Bisque. Just my opinion.

My brother-in-law has the silver pine with the gray interior. That's a combination I recommend.

I had a driftwood with beige interior. Driftwood is a beautiful color, doesn't show dirt much at all. I did not like the beige interior, and traded that 2004 in on a 2005 silver/gray. The gray interior is not very dark, at least the seat fabric isn't.

Go for it!
