    I've seen interior pictures of 2017's at the local dealer and on Toyota's website.

    It looks like they've finally relented on forcing US buyers to accept the beautiful? bone china accents.

    The shifter surround and steering wheel accents are still in place though.

    Anyway, the lack of white on the cupholders and charger are much more attractive.

    Good to hear. There was something absolutely nuts about the whole situation. Maybe soon they'll get rid of the rest of porcelain? I'm not a fan of light or white coloured interior, especially upholstery/carpeting. Also, any gloss surfaces: show their age fast.

    Textured dark-grey mo betta.

    That was the case for the Two in 2016 too. My 2017 Two has black console with white shifter and steering wheel accents.

    No dark grey options though.

    Unless the 2017 pics on website are of a level 2? Would hope not.

    I see a picture from the back seat where the armrest blocks the china. There is a view from the passenger seat that shows the white console.

    Dang.

    I don't even have a dog in this race, and the white porcelain STILL bugs the [email protected] out me. :ROFLMAO:

    Apparently false alarm though? See post #5.

    I still go with my "WHITE doesn't get dusty at all - BLACK needs dusting at least daily, so BLACK MUST ATTRACT DUST" motto. I'll stick with the WHITE please!!

    I still like the white plastic in the interior. I was looking for an interior that was different from all the black I had in the past . The white is definitely unique, along with the harvest beige dash and seat material. Plus, it just brightens up the inside of the car and makes it easier for me to find my lost french fries.

    The other day, I spilled half a large cup of coffee on my harvest beige driver's seat. I was shocked when it didn't leave any stain at all.

    Actually - it's the angle of the shot - it's the smallest of the Brisbane (Queensland) City Organs, Ann St Presbyterian where I'm one of the organists. It's only 16 ranks. (I mainly play at a Church with a Digital Allen Organ which is 2½ times bigger (42 ranks) (and has 6 other sampled organs I can select from), and has 32' digital pipes playing through the Subwoofers. But the Digital organ isn't as photogenic!!)

    a few years ago, my wife and i were amazed to learn that there are pipe organ manufacturers here in massachusetts. it is an amazing art.

    We've still got 2 near here - (and they're both are into model trains - one HO gauge Electric, the other steam). I think most of their work is in re-building organs though.

    I'm not sure if the pictures you are seeing are a black replacement or if they have applied the appliqué to it. My car came with the two appliqués, one for the lower console and the other for the shifter panel. I wanted the moonstone interior so that the white combination wouldn't look out of place... go figure. ;)

    If they keep it in 2017 I'm just going to have to take things further in my car. Thinking maybe along these lines:
