Im originally ordered that color combo but change my mind after I saw a few. I realized that the lighter/brighter colors short off the body lines soooo much better. There have also been reports of the Kalahari seats getting stained from clothing.

Thanks for the heads up. My current car has white seats so I'm pretty used to the clothing issue but it's definitely good to know. I may head over to the dealer and see the different color cars, but I do tend to like dark blues.
