    Hahaha! Dark tan is okay with me, but I like to at least imagine that white has no place in my car. It won't be white for long as we serious gardeners don't feel it has been a good day if we have not stepped in cow manure....at least the baked kind which does not stink most of the time. (Already spent an hour in the cow manure this morning, so yes, it is a GOOD day!) And Hubby likes to build things...all kinds of things....which means he usually is covered with some type of construction gob. I guess that if someone is childless and lives a very sterile, dirt-free life, a white car is a reasonable possibility. And of course if like mine, your Daddy chews/chewed tobacco, that would not be a good idea. At least it was not betel nut, which stains even worse than tobacco. Ah, those cultural difference are critical in most instances. And it usually is a blast learning how others do things. My family left Malvern, Wales 300 years ago for Virginia, so we now are a tad Americanized.

    Speculative opinion...
    But IMO there is a significant difference.
    It really never was a distaste for white interiors...as much as it was the shiny porcelain white look.
    People associate shiny white..with porcelain and that makes people think of sinks or toilets.

    That being said?
    I never thought the Prius white was all that bad. In fact, I have always thought especially if The Prius was white...the look was good.

    The Mercedes at least doesn't look like the restroom in a cheap travel trailer.

    As far as white?
    Anybody with children or grandchildren KNOWS that's a bad idea.
