Black or grey alcantara ? (pics)

Trying to figure out if the shifter boot is black or grey alcantara. Can any of you tell ? Keep in mind which pictures are in the shade and in the sun.

Thanks for your help ! I can take more pictures on request if needed

Black. If it's kind of grey looking, it's most likely faded from UV rays. Convertibles have this problem especially.

Get the one you have now wrapped by Colby Wheel. He'll do black Alcantara and the ///M stitching for something like $250.

I was in Scranton last year. Unfortunately I didn't see Dwight Shcrute. I did, however, eat at a crappy sushi place across from some super large cathedral looking brick building.

Its Perry winkle blue.

Anyways all jokes aside and a total hijack since someone said about changing the wheel i have a quick noobish question. Even if i have the old style box steering wheel is it just plug and play if i wish to upgrade the steering wheel to the 3 spoke? OR will i have to get another air bag also with it since i read somewhere its a square airbag vs a circler design?

Just wondering always liked the way the 3 spoke looks comparied to the Old school Box steering wheel.

Sorry again for the high jack.. Its black YO!
