The debate goes on as far as the Gray Poplar....Best to see it in person. Like so many of these custom colors the tint of the Gray Poplar may look widely different as different lots are produced. It's not plastic - a consistent color on stained wood is a lot to ask. The slight variation is one of the most atrractive characteristics of wood.

As I posted in the original thread that photo of the dash trim that looks so brown was not adjusted in any way and no flash was used. That photo may be slightly more brown than the actual, but is still pretty acurate. In the car that dash trim did seem more brown than the smaller trim pieces on the doors and center console. I even went back a couple days later and looked at it again. It definitely is not a Charcoal Gray that it seems most people are expecting.
