I've always been a black/dark charcoal enterior guy. I remember really liking the interior on the show Sol a year or so ago so I ordered the Steel/Sand. Now I'm having second toughts as to whether or not particularily the "sand" plastic will look cheap compared to the alternative of all black? What say you that have?

I saw the black with two tone at the Ride and Drive event in So. California. It was awesome! Did not look or feel cheap. I went with Cool (silver), with two tone interior and chrome wheels. Should be nice..... :cool:

I have to be honest, just picked mine up today and I tried to change my order some time ago from cloth to the steel sand. Now I am glad it was to late to change. The other EOP at my dealer got the steel/sand and when I looked at the two together I was very glad I got the cloth. It just goes better with the rest of the interior. The steel/sand and the dash and doors was way to busy for me, but each to their own. Hope your choice works for you.

I initially ordered my car with Sly and two/tone leather...mainly because that is all I saw in the Pontiac pictures of the car. I am not the type of person who can vision seeing the entire car in a particular color without seeing it. Having said that, after seeing most of the cars in person in Detroit, I changed my color to Deep with ebony leather. I see why Pontiac initially chose not to have two-tone in agressive and envious. But, it's all personal preference. So, to answer your question, I'm glad I didn't get the two-tone. I do, however, think it looks best in Sly.

:agree:

I don't think the two colors go well with each other. I wasn't that impressed with the two tone. I really hope that in the future that Pontiac comes up with more interior color options!

I have Sly with two-tone and have no regrets about the choice. In fact, many people who have seen the car volunteer that the like the appearance. I would probably not choose that interior with another color though.

Certainly the other colors have their attractions. It would be a harder decision to make now I think.

I think sly is the only color that the color combo will work. The others just don't look right!

I wish the two-tone had been:

ebony/tan (would have looked AWESOME with Mysterious)
ebony/desert gold (would have looked AWESOME with Mysterious)
ebony/red (would have looked AWESOME with Mysterious or Agressive)

Was somehow hoping that the steel would be darker on the mysterious then it is, I’m somewhat concerned that on the mysterious I ordered that there would be too much color contrast. Just seen VIN # 375 at my dealer sly with two-tone very nice look. I’m sure I'll get used to my two-tone mys. LOL

2 tone is good. Jazz it up a little and make the interior a little more interesting

I wasnt too impressed with the two tone either. Happy I went with ebony after seeing them at the ride and drive.

The only one I thought looked ok was the mysterious with two tone interrior but even then the ebony was my preference.

With 5 months having passed since I've ordered my car, I've 2nd guessed both interior and exterior colors. In fact, probably 3rd, 4th, and 5th guessed. However, when I finally got to sit in the Cool w/2-tone inside at the VIN0001 Party in Detroit, I never looked back.

I have not seen it in person but from the pics it was to busy. If it was just the seats I would have gone with it but not the dash and doors.

:agree: The two-tone was a rather unusual idea and I like that fact, but I don't like the color choices. I wish they would have been darker ... no matter how much you clean them, the lighter colors always seem to start looking dingy as time goes by.

I think black will look super.
I would agree if instead of steel it was ebony and sand but the steel/sand doesn't mess well with the black.
