I have been looking at pictures and it i am worried that the Dove Grey is to light of a color (from the pics it almost looks white). I noticed that Katzkin has a Silver color, which seems like it would go well with the main color of black. So if anyone has a pics of:
Black/Dove Grey or Black/Silver or either of the insert colors please post some pics.
I am planning on ordering the leather this weekend so the sooner the better
TIA

I seen material for both colors. The dove grey only looks white in the picture. The actual color of the leather itself is more darker. It will definitely look awesome with the black leather. As for the silver color, it looks very cheesy and synthetic. It has a shiny texture to it making it look like glittery vinyl. I know it looks comparable to the dove grey, colorwise, in the picture but the actual leather itself looks horrible. Definetly go with the dove grey leather. If you really want, go to autoleathers.com and ask them to send you samples of their leather. They were kind enough to do so with me. But in my honest opinion, definetly go with the dove grey inserts over the silver. Good luck :thumbup:

I agree with PapaPrem, go with Dove grey. I've seen both colors on Passats in Car shows and I didn't like the way the silver looked. The Silver inserts reminded me of those Alien costumes, you know the ones with Big heads and shiny silver capes. :crazy:

Or you can get dark grey Suede inserts like me 8)

FastPassat: is that cloth door trim? I thought katzkin's came with door trim, or maybe i just can't see.

Glad to help, Jordan. Enjoy the leather seats. Black with Dove Grey inserts are definetly a headturner. If I could just offer you one suggestion, might as well go with contrasting door trims and handles. For example, if your handle is black, then get dove grey door inserts. I seen one car with it and it really looks eye-catching (in a good way). But theres nothing wrong with complete matching too. Good luck! 8)
