i need some help.. the cars going in for its interior soon and well ive had so many ideas on what colour that im a little lost now..

to give you a run down... when you open the car.. all you will see is one colour.. everything will be the same colour... apart from the stitching..

the car is Jazz blue.. the front seats have a black carbon back to it so a light colour would look good against this.. but what colour?

very light cream?

white?

erm.. just dunno?

any ideas anyone?

Not entirely sure what to recommend, but those two colours will be a pain to keep clean, could you cope with that?

But on a plus side, they will look real nice for show season! [;)]

Then go for it fella! It is a lovely car, especially with those rims.. I think a stunning light cream retrim will certainly set it apart form the rest!

Just out of interest mate, what shows are you attending with it this year? [^o)]

first show is ultimate dubs..
Will be seeing you there then.. Should be a good 'un! [Y]

P.S. @ Cat, all blue car, all blue interior, don't you think that would be a tad OTT? Personally i wouldn't do it.

I think cream will look quite classy!

Hmm, maybe... or maybe that could be the idea, he is building a show
car here not a daily driver. If it was my decision, I'd need to see
some drawings before saying yes - but in my head a very light powder
blue with the brighter jazz blue exterior could look good [:D]

Just trying to think of something different...

Agreed, i think i would aswell. it's always going to be tricky finding a new interior colour that will make, not break the car! [:)]

But you could be right, your idea may well be one of those where you think "no" in your head, but once it's done it looks great!

It's just a shame Richie's only got me and you to listen to on this so far.. lol! I'm sure he'd appreciate a few more views...

Come on people! [;)]

how about something like tan? a reddish-orange might contrast well against the blue.....

i've heard the bentley website has some interesting combinations [bentley.co.uk?] but cant confirm this.

I have a jazz blue tubbant too, and id absolutely love a (really)
light grey re-trim, especially with jazz blue-ish stitching. Dont
think it could possible get any nicer. Tough decision for you
though, you lucky njfnwnrsrtyerjtukiy

Hi mate,

Mercedes light grey leather. With a very light blue tint on the windows, this will make the interior look like it's got a bluish tinge but when you open the door, the inside will have an expensive looking light grey interior, which will make it look very german and accentuate the blue exterior. Just MHO.

The blue tint I'm talking about comes as standard on new Mercs, & the the grey leather is actually closer to a silver grey, so it is light & airy.  Have a look around in a car park sometime at a new merc, quite a common spec for top end Mercs.  The blue tint is so light that it only looks blue when seen in certain angles.
