Chestnut Brown a photo and link

Hello all,

I have searched for some time for examples of Chestnut Brown leather and have come up with a site that has samples of the different leathers and also one photo I found on the web. From the photo is seems like a darker brown.
Cheers.

That has to be Terra. That's not an 09 interior (no chrome bits on the "cupholders" nor the different surround on the start/stop button).

looks good

it would look better with a wood trim, if one of the selections matches this color.

They should call it Chestnut RED, not Brown. It looks outstanding with aluminum trim. Mine is on order with M-sport and the "M-Sport-only" Glacier Aluminum trim!
