      Best paint color for Beechwood interior? Post your Beechwood car pics!

      Hello all - I was hoping to get into a T6 with the Beechwood interior, but selection right now is extremely limited. The closest cars in inventory with this combo are halfway across the country, and due to the model year changeover it might be best to just wait and place an order for a '13 later.

      Does anyone have a blue S60 with Beechwood? How does this combo look together?

      It's very difficult for me to find even T5 cars right now in Houston with this color interior so it's hard to tell how well certain exterior colors will mesh with it. If your car has this color interior, please post up some pics

      I would think savile grey or black sapphire would look good with beechwood in addition to the blue - pretty sure I've seen pics here with those color combos.

      I get MANY compliments on my Vibrant Copper/Beechwood combo. The Beechwood almost matches the copper...

      My 2012 T6 is Vibrant Copper with the Beechwood interior and I (of course) think it looks fantastic. And I've gotten a lot of complements about that combo.

      I like the Copper exterior because it "stands out" against all the silver and white cars on the Arizona roads while not being a heat absorbing dark color that Southwesterners often avoid. I chose the Beechwood because of all the brown accents against the black in the interior, and simply because I've never had that color interior before!

      Sorry, I don't have any pics. to upload, but you can find a bunch by searching Google images for "2012 Volvo S60 interior beechwood."

      ^Soooo gorgeous. Still my favorite color combo of the new S60. A bit loud in combination, yes, but still my favorite.

      I have the Black Ember with Beechwood Combination. The ember has flecks of orange in the paint, so in normal sunlight it looks black. However, if the sun is shining on it, the flecks come to life and the car almost looks like a dark mousy brown (technical term of course). When I first saw the car in the sunlight, I honestly thought it was a different car.

      If I was ordering new, I might even consider the Saville Grey with Beechwood combination.

      That wouldn't be practical in some parts around here as there is so much gravel. Beige and Silver are the best at hiding dirt.

      Mine is Sapphire Black with Beechwood interior. It's a GREAT color combination. Only problem is keeping the black car clean on the outside

      I went with the Vibrant Copper exterior for my 2012 S60T5 OSD. It really turned heads during our trip including being used as a backdrop for wedding photos at the Obelisk in Paris.

      How does Vibrant Copper do with dirt?

      Pretty well, in my opinion. You really do have to get up rather close to it to notice much of anything!

      Saville Gray was the best combination IMO. I briefly considered a T6 AWD and making my own RD much like wdengineer but decided to buy an RD instead which doesn't offer Beechwood.

      You might check the Tulsa dealers. They had a couple with Beechwood.

      I agree. The metallic flaking in the paint makes the color pop but it still hides dust and water spots quite well.

      I hurt my hand two months ago and haven't been able to wash my Vibrant Copper S60. It really doesn't look bad. Drives me crazy, but it hides the dirt pretty well.

      I ordered it from Volvo, but it could not be selected to Beechwood black so it was a special request ;-)

      I'm a big fan of blue or black with "brown/tan/chocolate/etc" interiors. Hardly, the same shade as Beechwood, but one of my current cars:











      One thing I do like about Beechwood is the darker carpet (less dirt showing up).
