    Those who have the beige leather interior, any feedback? Do you like the lighter color? Any issues? Regrets?

    I am getting a White Limited early next year and really like the beige leather interior, but plan on keeping it for years, so not sure I should deviate from my standard black interior I always get. Any thoughts are appreciated. Thanks.

    I would go black leather if I had the choice. Doesn't bother me though.

    I really like the look too. I am just concerned about how it will look 10 years from now. Anyone have some years on their tan interior that they can chime in? I don't want to cover new seats just to save them either...

    A little of this and a little of that.
    Well my RX350 has tan leather and is only 6 years old and it looks absolutely terrible. Even after cleaning and conditioning it has all kinds of lines running all over the place. The same thing happened to our Sequoia with beige interior. Now my tundra is black leather and I wouldn't buy beige again. Just my $.02

    I never cared for tan or beige interiors as they tend to look dingy after a time.

    I recently purchased a CM Ltd unseen, and it has the tan interior. In the pics it showed up as almost white, and having never been in a Tundra I was a bit concerned - but it met every other box I wanted so I bought it. When it showed up, I was very pleasantly surprised as it was notably darker than I was expecting based on the pics. Personally I'm quite happy with the color and appearance.

    I have black actual leather in other cars (I think this is more of a naugahyde or something in the Tundra), and all of those show significant lines/creasing in spite of being very well maintained and one of them with very little use. I just treated the interior the other day, and it responded well. At 27k miles there are zero lines in the material, I wish I could say that for my vehicles with actual leather.

    Long story short, this looks good to me so far.

    Thanks all. With 8 year old triplets and using it to take the dirt bike and quad trail riding just see the tan seats not holding up. It looks really nice but those concerns shared are def mine as well...

    Tan looks awesome. Wish I had gotten tan, especially since the floor is black.

    I have a 2004 4runner with beige leather and for a 13 year old car.. it's held up really well despite the fact that i treat it like crap... wet wetsuits kind of crap... it looks a lot better than the leather i had in one of my f-150s that i sold when it was 2 years old. My suggestion would be to not buy covers for them, enjoy them, after all, you paid a bunch of money for leather... then, if they look bad in 10 years, just buy replacement skins at that time

    black leather... After having beige in an F-150, I'd never do it again, it shows everything but maybe that was ford.... the leather in my 4R seems to hold up much better - even more so now that wifey drives it.

    All leather isn't created equal though. When i was buying hides to reupholster a car, the difference in quality and price from one cow skin to another was quite staggering.

    It's not a Tundra, but I had a 2005 Acura RL that I sold last year. It had a light color leather. The interior was nice and bright. You have to keep up with cleaning it well as dirt will start showing up and making the seats look dark and dirty. Also it really shows if you get a scratch and it's hard to color match. I'd get a darker color, just my 2 cents. This a pic of a new interior.
