Sadly, I don't have an Eos... but I do have a W12 Phaeton that has a light beige interior that is very similar in colour to the Cornsilk Beige that is provided in the Eos. The only difference is that I have 'Sensitive' leather, which is a very soft, porous leather - almost like deerskin - and the Eos comes with 'Vienna' leather, which is a split hide that is pretty tough and non-permeable.
At first I wondered if the beige interior would be a nightmare, but after 2 years and 35,000 miles, it still looks really, really good, and the next time I get a car, I will try to get another beige interior. Here's the pros and the cons, based on my experience:
Advantages of Beige
- makes the inside of the car look much bigger.
- it's a lot more cheerful, especially during winter when there is not much daylight.
- it does not get hot when the sun shines on it.
- easy to spot stuff you dropped on the seat or carpet.
Disadvantages of Beige
- you need to wash the floormats (not the carpets, just the removable mats) every month or two.
- winter mats are essential, if you get snow in your area.
- you can't let kids (the under 14 crowd) eat or drink in the car.
- you need to keep it clean, because it shows neglect a lot faster than a dark colour.
If you don't mind maintaining the car - in other words, if you are the type of person who enjoys detailing the car - then by all means get beige. If you have small kids, or if you don't like detailing the car, then don't get it.
