I respect everyone's opinion and agree to some extent...
Essentially this is a topic which has a lot of personal opinion in it; so I think it is fantastic that everybody shares their thoughts which eventually leads to making a good personal decision based on different point of views...

that's what makes these forums so great....it's kinda an extended family where being different in some ways but alike is most others brings us together.

Anybody has or has seen a combination of Mineral Silver and Sand Beige? This is what I ordered based on the configurator, but I haven't seen it in real life.

what would really help more than discussion is if this could become a pic center for interiors - I'll start - mine is sapphire/oyster

That's the lighter wood trim I presume?!
Although I would have gone with the Wave (the darker) in order to give a contrast to your interior (your seat and exterior color are both light, remember?)..
Are you still able to modify it?

It is indeed the light.
I think I like the look of the light better on the configurator, but was hoping for some feedback from folks that might have seen the actual combination.

I've seen it...
It is much lighter than the configurator.. that's why I'm telling you.
Of course if you like it, then that's the one!

Shaw, I appreciate the info.
I've seent he Siena (with Oyster), just haven't seen it with the Sand/MS combination.
Car was targetted to be build this week, but I was told this morning it will be another 2 weeks. More time to overthink this.

Oyster is a different story... that is much lighter than beige, hence fineline siena works much better (contrast is there);
with beige there is not much contrast (don't forget that the beige and finline are two different colors with no contrast and rhyme) ...on top of that, add silver disjoints in some places...

I saw a beige with finline (black exterior)... not promising

good luck with the selection, now that you've got sometime...
