We've been seeing the great pics of the inscription interiors for over a year now. Any word on when they'll be available and on which models? I, of course, would be very interested in the blue/black leather one if it could be mated to a nice blue exterior.

Re: Inscription interiors....when? (GrecianVolvo)

It really speaks to the larger issue of the color palette Volvo deems us fit to use. As much as I enjoy the lineup, the availability of color, both inside and out of the car, is incredibly bland. Just as an exercise, I checked out Volvo's online store thing to see just how many stops between white and black they give us.<p><B>Exteriors</B><br>S40: 5 stops between white and black<br>V50: 5 stops between white and black<br>S60: 5.5 stops between white and black<br>V70: 4 stops between white and black<br>XC70: 3.5 stops between white and black<br>R: 3.5 stops between white and black<br>S80: 5.5 stops between white and black<br>XC90: 4.5 stops between white and black<br>C70: 4 stops between white and black<br><I><B>Note:</B> the 0.5's come from Lava Sand and Magic Blue. Mostly gray or black.</I> <p><B>Interiors</B><br>All Models (except R): Light, Dark.<p>If you strip all of these away and you look at the actual <I>colors</I> Volvo offers here in the states, you get three, maybe four. And most of those are either blue or red. And unless you have an R, you don't <I>get</I> to have interior color.

Re: Inscription interiors....when? (exizldelfuego)

It's good to be in the minority in this situation.<p>What do you mean by stops? How do you get 1/2 of a stop? whatever a stop is. Do you mean other choices not related to black or white?

Re: Inscription interiors....when? (soledoc)

Definitely good to be in the minority, I just wish the black/tan version of your interior (I always forget what it's called) was around when my turn at the S60 came along.<p>And by "stop" I just meant the gradations from white to black (and all the grays and silvers and titaniums in between). And like I said, the halfs denoted either lava sand (mostly gray) and magic blue (mostly black).

Re: Inscription interiors....when? (T5_awd)

Was the black/tan split interior called graphite and sisal (kind of a maize color)?

I think I'm the only one in here who's seen it IRL. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0"> So here is a pic. But it looks more brown than red IRL.<p><A HREF="http://img151.imageshack.us/my.php?image=pict00631du.jpg" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://img151.imageshack.us/img151/7868/pict00631du.th.jpg" BORDER="0"></A>

Dyer and Dyer Volvo in Atlanta had one on the lot with that color. Kinda like a football. Regardless - it was pretty.
