How does the chalk leather look with white car?
Is Olea beige worth $2450.00 upgrade?

I have seen the Olea Beige and if you like a wow color combined with black seat backs and seats imbedded within a black look in the back seat, I say go for it. I have attached a photo for you to consider. I would think about getting Dark Silver versus the Neodine look as it did look better to me. I have seen the Black/Limestone Beige but in a sample only. I would would be concerned about jean wear on the chalk seat and have heard that you need to get protection for the seat or you will be unhappy.

Yes, at the auto show in Frankfurt there were terrible jean stains on the white interiors.

any Opinion if chalk beige or the crayon suits better with white exterior? From the pictures i see that by choosing crayon, only 4 leather seats are in crayon and the remaining is black . In case of chalk beige, all 5 seats and the doors are same color . Any suggestion?

Hello,

in my opinion, both colours work, but the light colour works better.

Cheers,
Henrik

I would go for the crayon as I like the two different colours on the doors and the rear seats. It is also lighter which I like. Quite easy to get a good leather treatment on it to reduce or eliminate jeans stain etc.

Good luck!

Thanks for the suggestion! I would love to have crayon as well, if was just like Panamera, however in this case, crayon is only for 4 seats and console, not even on the back side of the front seats and doors. But in case of chalk beige, all doors, 5 seats both sides are of same colour. Roof lining is always black. Another choice would have been truffle brown if price was not an issue.

I visited my local dealer who has a large inventory and was able to compare interiors on a Panamera and went with chalk. We will deal with the protection. To me it just looks so much better plus I live in a warm climate and need it light.

I actually prefer the two tone colours with crayon. I like the fact that the middle seat in the back is black and the outer seats are crayon, as well as the patterns on the door. I live in a warm country so prefer lighter coloured seats but am well aware of the risk of jeans stains etc. But today there are some good treatments available to help mitigate that problem and there are also a lot of good cleaning products.

Nice to get the opportunity to experience it in real. How is the colour on the door? I basically dont like doors with black as they gets dirty and is visible.
I hope it is the same as in picture

I like crayon as well and are well aware about the cleaning product. However I get a feeling that two tone colour will be exciting only when its brand new, just like the red / black interior I had on my previous BMW. Also, the shoe marks from the back seaters especially kids will be easily visible on black colour (back side of the front seat). Of course it is easy to clean though :)
