    I'm in NorCal and want a white with moonstone cloth interior but every single one listed comes in black interior. Is there any particular reason why dealers opt for black when they bring them in? I want the car today and not have to wait for a month or two for it.

    Not all are. I can point you to another dealer in OR that has the White/Moonstone combo.

    Please let me know, I can fly there and drive it home for the right color that I can buy TODAY!

    oh and BTW I'm only interested in the Plus, the advance is too rich for my needs.

    I have done a quick look around the webs and when looking for cloth moonstone interior (only on the Prime Plus as you want) I'm not sure it exists. It may only come in black for the cloth seats, but the moonstone Softex can be found here and there.

    I personally prefer the black since it is more resistant to aging and staining so that's what I'll get whenever I get my Prime Plus.

    EDIT: I look on the ebrochure from Toyota's website and yes, it does come with moonstone cloth:

    I guess they just do not like to make too many with cloth since black is more popular...
    Best of luck!
