    Finally the mystery behind the "White Fine China" is solved. Look at this image. It is a "toilet themed" restaurant in China. Look closely how they are seating on the toilet seat and eating from the toilet bowl!!! No wonder, Toyota would want to design their cars with a bathroom theme :D

    Now I've seen it all...!

    On the other hand, I guess it would be convenient. They can relieve themselves at the same time they are eating. :LOL: (Multi-tasking? Not a moment wasted.)

    Yes where/ how did Toyota design team think the interior porcelain white was a good design?

    It is odd, doesn't match anything.
    The radio surround is a black with blue metallic flake color.
    Then they have this bold white.

    Personally I would place a film or paint these white pieces to a black ASAP.

    But again, what was Toyota's logic?

    Wait, are they using toilet paper as napkins?

    So far I don't have the gen3 glare blocking my vision reading the mfd, so ugly, brittle, whatever, if it cuts glare, good.

    Americans have to realize (eventually) that we are no longer the center of gravity for automotive styling.
    There's also an age thing going on here.

    Some trends, I refuse to participate in.
    * Angel eyes
    * Blackened rims
    * Negative offsets
    * stovepipe diesel exhausts
    * 4x4 frame and body lifts
    * $10,000 rims and 24+ inch rubber on a $2500 4-door
    * Slamming
    * Dodge Challenger inspired rear-ends....and now.....
    * Porcelain Palace interiors.

    Nothing wrong with these trends....but there's nothing wrong with people driving their age either.


    Every now and again, either Asian or European styling ques will cross the pond and assert themselves in LHD vehicles.
    SSDD.
