just got it 2 weeks ago...
I like the exterior color, but I'm not so hot on the red trim inside.

However, it may be one of those things you have to see "in the flesh" to truly appreciate, i.e., some things just don't translate well into flat pictures, such as Piano Black trim... I like the Piano Black when I see it in real life, but pictures of it doesn't appeal to me.

I think a 4.6 is a rare bird, indeed. I see a lot of 4.4's, a handful of 4.8si's, but I don't think I have ever seen 4.6's. Collector's item.

Too bad about the interior, though.

It is a nice truck. The interior is not for me, but, I don't think it is as awful as some mentioned. The interior is unique in its own way, and I think it's something some will love, while others hate. I'm actually huge on contrast, but, IMO, too much contrast is too much, and red is one of those colors with which you have to be careful. For instance, if it were white exteior with black & white interior, it may look hot...or, silver exterior with the black and brush aluminum interior, it may look good, etc. I think some folks here just don't like the red too much; it's not that popular a color.

Anyhow, congrats, and enjoy your truck.
