Why would you choose a black headlining if white or similar is available ? White/light colour every time for me.
Depends on spec, it’s standard on the R-Dynamic and I didn’t have the choice to change it.

I have the all black leather, headlining etc with the pano roof. It’s fantastic. Not too dark.

I like an all dark interior especially with the ambient lighting etc.

My current car is red leather and you just get used to what you have quickly. I love the look of the ivory interior but with 3 kids and dog to cart around it was a no go.

I wimped out and went with the oyster with ebony inserts - which was on one of the dealer cars and I think gives a lift! Stuck with the ebony headlining...

Final spec day today, so decision made!

Maybe put contrasting finishers in?

With Firenze red you can’t have any light colours imo. Only black or tan interior.

Tan is very vogue right now and it would be mixed with plenty of black inside.

But it’s out there...

We went with the tan (acorn) leather with the blonde wood inserts after seeing it on a demo car, my wife really doesn't like a dark interior so the all black was never an option for me sadly!

All black interior for me and I love it. Not claustrophobic in the slightest. My TT was the same

Light Oyster interior for us. We would never go for an ebony interior - a coffin on wheels. At least you’re considering the lass roof. I regularly get claustrophobic when get a rental in ebony. All this talking about Light Oyster is getting dirty and those jeans. We owned light interiors in several cars in the last 16 years and never had any problems. With children that is. If it ever got dirty it’s wiped clean, peace of cake and rarely ever happened. But I’m glad most cars are sold with ebony interiors. More exclusiveness for us. 😀
