    Thanks to all who posted pictures of their new PiPs already. So much fun to watch. Unfortunately I can't seem to find any of the standard interior. Most posters want to show the OEM leather installed at one particular dealer in CA...

    Would any of the other lucky ones with a standard, dark grey cloth be able to post some pictures? It would help me cope with with the unbearable wait for my own standard Seaglass Pearl PHV scheduled for the end of April;)... I was supposed to get mine right about now, but changed my mind about the color and now I am at the end of the line...

    Thanks in advance!

    Thanks Tracksyde!

    I am surprised how light the grey is, I was expecting a dark grey and this looks like the light grey.

    Yeah.. I wouldnt characterize the seats as dark gray at all. I think the "general theme" of the interior is dark gray.. but mainly the dash area.. thats pretty dark gray.

    Some people seem to appreciate the contrasting colors. I wouldnt have minded if it was all dark gray.

    The Prius plug in dark gray interior does not differ from the dark gray on the standard 2012 Prius.

    Looks great, I still wish the glove box 'plastic' was black and not just grey... Having that all black, with black for the center console cover and door inserts looks beautiful.

    Better to wait a bit longer and get the color you want..... I'm getting the blue basic myself. [​IMG]

    I had picked blue, but when I saw it at the DC auto show a couple of months ago I did not like it. Too much blue in it for me. I was hoping for something more silver, with some blue in it. I saw a 2012 Prius there in Sea glass pearl and liked it much better. My dealer had another customer who no longer wanted his seaglass and he switched me. I decided it was better to wait an extra month or two to get exactly what I liked.
    We currently have a 2006 with tan interior that I do not care much about. Really looking forward to the nice two tone grey interior. Should also be easier to keep clean.

    I love the color, thank you for the pics. I assumed it would be similar to the very dark, monochrome look of the 2011 interior, and am very happy about this! I have a black (cloth) interior in my current car and the seats show every speck of lint.
