Bring on the Spice Family Robinson and you too can be "Lost in Spice"...

Tend to think Tan would have been better, however, not available. Ordered months ago and had second thoughts when I seen the colour in another model. Once I picked up the car and the leather was new, must say my thoughts changed for the better. It certainly beats the boring old Charcoal (which I've had in my last 5 cars) or Cream/Biege. They do say good taste comes with maturity!!

LOL :lol: I had Cream/Biege in my BMW and wanted a change, so I opted for the Charcoal. You car does look nice! ;)

Must admit to thinking that the Spice wouldn't work, but after seeing your pictures it looks great. Nice one! Enjoy the car.

Interesting choice and definately preferable to charcoal but I do like the lighter colours I'm afraid

Charcoal is the signature color of crematoriums

It's deadly dull, but if you're afraid of standing out from the crowd it's the perfect color. I just wouldn't be seen dead in it. Spice is cool. The new Red Zone for the XFR is outstanding, but I suspect few owners will have the [email protected] to order it.

Sad how boringly conservative owners of nice cars have become...

Digital photos do Spice no favours. I have managed to manipulate these to give a truer representaion.

Yeah they often look orange in pictures when they are more of a lightish brown colour IMO.

I like the colour but what I dont like (and i have made this comment to penultimateblack before) is the black plastic seat backs on the front seats.

Plastic backs are easy to keep clean.

Plastic backs are easy to clean as said. I can vouch for that, I have my grandkids visiting at the moment, and their little feet cannot reach the floor - only the backseat! bless them though.

On another note, as I am the driver, I cannot see the back of the seat, so it really doesn't bother me. Must say, had the car 2 weeks today, and those eyes are rolling as I drive by.

I have to say that I love all XFs no matter what colour of exterior or interior but I would
not swap my Vapour grey with charcoal interior. Happy XFing.
