Question Is Black The Only Leather That Matches Fire Orange ?

what leather color (individual or standard) do you guys think is best w/ fire orange besides black?

leather color is so hard to match with fire orange, im having a huge debate on fire orange and amarone .

looking forward to see what you guys think and getting a different perspective...

I personally would stick with the black. But its your car you have to live with it so you should trust your gut. If you don't, every time you get in the car you will wish you would have picked what you wanted and not gone with what someone else recommended. GL

IMO Amarone is a classy color (it is a very deep burgundy) and would only work with a fairly subdued exterior color........ Whites, Blacks, silvers.

Fire orange is an extremely loud exterior color and I think it would only look good with a matching orange or a black.

I know we spoke via PM and I recommended the same. It is possible that Rust Brown would look good with it (since it is quite an orangey brown) but I still think my original recommendation of Black Extended Leather with orange stitching would look best.

Good luck with your decision!!!

You gotta tone it down inside with the black, aka most conservative/classy color; the fire orange is just way to loud for anything else.
