I agree it lightens up the inside and makes it look "bigger", but the light interior shows a lot of smudges and just touching it leaves a mark. So I'm sticking with my dark interior preference. Just got back from test driving it. Definitely surprising how much "pep" it has. Tight in the backseat, but I knew that as a 6'2" individual. A bit noisy on the highway at 75 MPH, definitely more than the Leaf. That said, overall I think it makes a great contender. I don't need to "upgrade" for another 2 months, so if they happen to get the exact model / colors I like, I'll go back and maybe pull the trigger then! M3 is pretty much out at this point for me.
