Default carpets... again

I know there have been many carpet topics, but i just wanted to pose this question to the masses. I have been looking into the company that Randman1 got his carpet from and was looking at the color choices. Here is my question: I have a 93 SSEi, white ext with light grey int. I am looking at swapping the interior with the tu-tone white/charcoal interior from a 92 SSEi. Do you think a black/charcoal would look bad with my light (medium I think) grey interior? I really need new carpet and matting as mine is water damaged.

Edit the lighter carpet is used with along with the lighter headliner, all the trim pieces and the door panels are the darker color

I think the opposite would be cool, you would have to get the darker headliner to match the carpet

Jimmy,

Go with a halftone.....halfway between the leather seat gray and black. Not a dark charcoal, but darker than a stock gray carpet.

ok... here is the color choices for the company Randman1 went with:

If you could give me a suggestion based on those colors. Please, no joke answers.

Here are a couple other companies found, one of which appears to be $98, which would be very nice.

807 Dark Grey or 857 Med Grey..keep in mind I've never seen your colors

PS... Geoff...wouldn't it have been easier to take off the sunroof and drive a new car under?
