    Cream Leather

    Looking at a red Astra Coupe Turbo with cream leather

    What are peoples thoughts on cream leather??

    would like one with black leather but is cream going to be a nightmare to keep clean?


    Thanks Gaz

    cream looks nice, but the centre console also comes in a nasty creamy colour as well with the leather, not a massive problem as easy to swap/spray.

    Black leather looks nicer in a Red car though IMO. Cream is better suited to darker cars.

    I've got a Europa Blue Coupe with Cream Leather and it looks fantastic as it contrasts very nicely against the darker blue colour. Not that hard to keep clean, just make sure you give it a wipe now and again with decent leather cleaner / conditioner.

    I'm struggling to imagine it looking good against the contrast of a red car though so you may be better off going for black, but then it's all down to personal taste.

    Oh, and as already mentioned I've got the nasty looking cream centre console (and a bit of cream leather on the steering wheel) too so changing them for Titanium items are on the to do list.

    Cheers

    Cream leather in an Astra is very unusual and kind of 'retro' so I like it a lot!

    I use a product called Gliptone 'Liquid Leather' to clean my black leather, I would say this would be doubly important on cream as it will show the dirt more.

    I would definetley say go for it!

    Cream leather is the bollocks, black is too plain imo.

    Dad had europa blue with cream many moons ago, apart from the dash which was a bit weird (along with bottom of steering wheel) it was ace
