Default Beige interior colour

In my never ending quest for the perfect seat, I came across a "beige" 9 way power leather seat from a 99 SSEi on car part. I called this wrecker and asked about Bonneville seats. He asked me what colour, and I said tan. He told me he had one from a 99 SSEi. He wants $125 and apparently it is in excellent condition. I asked him if he was sure it was tan and he told me it was. This is the same seat that was listed on car part.

Anyway, it is still listed as being beige. Is there a beige Bonneville interior leather colour for 96-99 that he could get it mixed up with? Or is it just listed as that because tan and beige are very similar?

I don't want to drive 40 minutes through the city to find a seat that doesn't match my interior...

Don't quote me on this, but I believe there were 2 "tans" in the 96+, maybe earlier too but I'm not sure.

I thought that was just for 2000+

I know Harofreak ran into this issues when he got a dash peice and it was a darker beige.

Your right...there is a camel and a tan for 96-99.

The camel is not as close to beige as tan though. So either this seat is tan or it is this beige colour that may or may not exist.

Pat, where are you!?

I also thought all the 'tan' was one color in 96-99. < 95 was the darker 'tan' (camel), and 96 > was a toned down lighter color.

96-99 had tan, and 98-99 also had camel, which is much darker.

I got this...

563 - Trim combination leather,medium neautral II(3)(96)

I know I have tan. I just need to know if this seat that is listed as beige is actually a beige seat, or tan as the guy on the phone told me it is.

I don't want to drive all the way out there and see some beige seat.

Lets do it this way, what are all the possible leather seat colors available from 96-99.

I know of:

Tan
Camel
Charcoal
Green (don't know the official name)
Grey

and what else?
