I just plunked down to get in a very short line for a mean (yellow) 08 and asked about ebony/sand interior and was told if I get the yellow the only color option in leather is ebony. Can you folks chime in on this because it surprised me a bit. Was thinking the tan/sand color would look good on a yellow car.

I believe the new 08 models should have an option for ebony/sand. The steel/sand combination was done away with for the 08 models.

yea deal was that if you picked the yellow black was only option not the black&tan seemed odd to me that an exterior color dictates the interior.

I'm not really surprised. When the Solstice first came out, you couldn't get the sand & steel interior on the green and I believe the red cars. After they realized a lot of people wanted these combos they added the option. I guess someone at Pontiac decided yellow wouldn't look good with the two tone interior.

I wish they would let you order the two tone on the GXP. I would then be all over that. My past three cars have been two-tone and won't have it any other way. No two-tone = deal killer for me.

I agree. Not having the option of a ebony and tan interior in the GXP is just plain stupid. :devil: :devil: :devil:

If you really want the black and tan you could get a Sky.

I bought a 2006 black Solstice with 20,800 miles on it. The interior it tan and cream colored- it this considered an option? Also were chrome rims an option, I am thinking of getting chrome rims with new tires and keeping the original tires and wheels intact. I bought it because the exterior has fewer paint chips than my blue one with 64,000 miles has.

in 06 the tan/gray color was standard. Chrome wheels were always and option. Put some decent tires on it since NA tires are terrible! Enjoy your ride.

The seats are tan and cream, are the centers leather? The very front of the driver's seat looks like leather that could use some type of leather treatment. I tried the helper springs for the truck springs on the blue one, but I haven't found the correct combination. When I close the trunk they pop off after a few closings. Wish I could find a kit or ones that I could just put on without modifications. We have to pull the trunk open when the top is down, because of the weak spring action.

I would like to see pictures of the German strut fix. I really don't want to take the rear of the car apart to replace the factory springs- I don't think I will be showing it.

I missed that thread somehow the first time around. Great work with the custom bracket/ spring. I may give that a shot soon, or may try to make my own brackets for a strut setup. Still debating. Thanks for sharing the design and dimensions with the forum.
