I prefer the White Interior, but I doubt I'll ever buy a car with white because I'm afraid of upkeep, marks, discoloration over time. But very sharp. (Android user ;))

So since it's not a real leather, the upkeep is fairly simple. You just wipe it out. I personally just think that a light interior brightens up the whole cabin and the contrast looks better, but hey, it's personal preference.

I just picked up a white Microsoft phone (alas it runs Android).

Since you can only get the CA Rt 1 in black--black it is.
Duo for yuo.

Spouse told me to get the infinite blue one to match this new iPhone today, but that seems backasswards.

I have friends with Tesla white interior. It's all fun and games until someone sits in your car with a ballpoint pen in their pocket.

Like I said, I like it more. I just would be a nervous wreck about it getting ruined.

I would have preferred the white also for the summer heat, but there's no way I could keep the thing remotely clean.

do a youtube search for "tesla white seats". Lots of musketeers "tested" Tesla's claim that the white seats were stainproof only to find out that they aren't.

The MB synthetic seats we have are a very light gray and have been stain-free, but we clean them any time the car is washed and use vinyl treatment occasionally. Sliding in/out with dark jeans can be an issue- no doubt the "white" ones will require more maintenance than "dark gray" but after my experience over the past 18 months with the MB I am not too concerned. Especially since the MME has black seat backs, and other high touch areas like the arm rest are black.

This is our driver's seat after 5+ years of use (we got the car used.)

Hawaii has iron rich and very red soil. Plus I live in a ranch with extremely fine, ashy, very red soil. White would never do here.

I much prefer the black. Android user here. I wonder if there is a correlation if iPhone users prefer white.
Have owned every iPhone for the last 14 years and they’ve all been black.

In fact, my ridiculousness prompted the delivery of my Graphite iPhone 12 Pro today to match my carbonized gray MME.
Considering the iPhone 12 Pro Max, but unfortunately it does not come in Product Red to match the ME. Guess I will have to match the black interior.

Just this week a bought a refurb "(Product) Red" iPhone 7 from woot for some work testing and such. It never occurred to me that it would sort of go with the new car. 😂

of course the 7 is the last one without wireless charging. 😂
