I just checked out a NBP with ebony interior, and I noticed that while the seats and dash are indeed black, the roof is grey??? I think it looks weird, why would Acura do that? Maybe you guys like it, I just wasn't expecting it. Thoughts?

Are all ebony interiors like this?

Its the same with my Arctic Blue TSX w/ ebony leather. I don't have a problem with it. The gray doesnt look that bad and it grows on you.....at least its not ivory color.

If you goto Canada they sell white TSXs w/ ebony interior. I still don't understand why they haven't brought that here. Milano Red w/ ebony for '05 is a start though.

If the ceiling was black, it would feel like you're in a cave. The light color makes it appear higher and roomier. Ceilings are almost always much lighter than the walls in any space except movie theatres or nightclubs.

I think the light color roof interior is due to psychological reasons.
With a lighter color on top, the interior seems bigger, with a dark color, it seems more closed in and smaller. just my 2 cents.

IMO the parchment interior is more "upscale" and unique looking. The use of three colors on the inside (cream roof lining, black dash, and light wood). Maybe 5 years ago I would have opted for the Black Interior but now is seems kinda monotone and depressing after a long day in my office.....But....compared to the interior of the Accord V-6, the black interior of the tsx looks great. At least the dash is separated by a nice metallic stipe. In fact, in the brochure it looks real nice. They don't even put the parchment in the brochure.

Another issue is the heat in Florida where the temps get extremely hot, I'll be loving my prem white pearl paint and light interior. The only downside is that the floor mats get dirty quick.
