If it looks brown, smells brown and tastes brown, it is brown!

OK, so it is officially "Sand Beige", but here is your choice: I can refer to it as "brown" or "fudge".

The choice is your's.

That is a brown (cocoa interior)....



Very Happy

Goes very well (imo) with a cream (not white) exterior....saw one at LM a few years and thought it looked very nice indeed Smile

Whilst that may be true apw, in matters of spectral deliniation, RGB values do not lie.

uuf361's interior scores most highly in the "brown" zone.

That is truly awful......any 911 convertible with a fixed spoiler just looks like a kit car.

Anything else?? How about something, anything, just not that.

I'm sure it is but in my opinion (and that is mine, and something you cannot change!) I would never have described it as a brown interior.......

And that is something you just have to accept - not everyone agrees with everyone else always......doesn't make it any more right or wrong.....and no matter how much information is posted my opinion won't change......

I think it was you who originally didn't accept my opinion that it was brown.

I therefore invoke your guidelines and request you not attempt to pervert that assertion.
