    It's a factory special order by the original owner.
    Just shows how dangerous it is to buy something you like instead of what's good for resale!! ;--)

    Somewhere, there's always a buyer for the unique. I commend the original buyer for being different....

    That green is not that bad in person - I have seen the same combo on a 360 and it was OK, still if you are spending good money on a used car, may as well get the color combo you want... even a slight discount doesn't offset the fact you have to live with it...

    Looks a VERY similar colour scheme to Jay Kay's old 360 that I saw a few weeks ago and someone bought that from a Main Dealer!I walked out into the road and chucked up!:D

    You would have to be color blind to buy that car. It isn't even a nice shade of green.

    I couldn't live with it.

    If I had a to buy it though, I'd have to discount at least $40K for that interior--meaning that the high bid on the vehicle ($75K) is already too high in my opinion.

    What would it cost to have the color resprayed to black. These weird colors are sprayed onto the leather at the factory then applied(I saw them doing it ;) ) Maybe for say $3 - 5K cost you could get a $50K discount on the car because it's a double bagger?.........

    You probably only saw one small part of the tanning process. Merely spraying the leather like painting a wall is definately not correct unless your the mobile one stop detail guy that visits the used car lots for instant make overs!

    I am pretty sure I saw the same 360 with green interior that you are reffering to but, I am almost positive that the one in SA is a darker shade of green. I could be wrong though.

    well that is a pretty disgusting combo imho. however, there is a solution. the interior is probably pretty hard to cure, and expensive.
    the only way to live with the interior is to change the background, the frame of the picture - respray the exterior, and do it in black. then detail the inside with black piping on the interior.
    done. it wont be as nice as lots of other combos, but it will be liveable.

    Goes to show that you can have money but it won't teach you taste. Seems like a poor fellow who needed to prove that he could afford a puke green interior!

    Remember, one day the guy that buys this car is going to sell it and he'll have to face all these comments again, not something I'd want to do. There are plenty of these cars on the market without all the issues.
