OK, I have what I thought was a simple question, but none of the dealers
that I talked to, nor the Ford 800 number can answer it. So hopefully
someone out in Cyberland can.

I'm going to be buying an '06 GT Convertible, and I'm currently doing
research on which options, colors, etc., that I want. I'm interested in
getting the Redfire exterior. I'm also interested in getting the package
with the red leather seats. My question is, what shade of red are the
seats? Are they a darker red, like the Redfire exterior, or are they a
brighter red, like the Torch Red exterior?

Thanks in advance for your help!

I, like you was concerned with the "clash" of colors between the
redfire and the "upgrade" red leather seat color. On my '05 GT, I
finally decided to go with the "light graphite" (light gray) interior.
I'm glad I did. Color is definitely a matter of personal choice,
however, in my opinion, the dark charcoal seats with the "off color"
red leather inserts just don't look right in the Mustang. As I said,
it's definitely a matter of choice. Something else to consider in
addition to color is the "two tone" color scheme, if you get the "red
seats" the rest of the interior is dark charcoal That color
"splash" seems (again in my opinion), to make the interior too busy.

Buy what you want, if the question you're asking is, "Do the red
seats match the redfire exterior color?" then the answer is, no, they
are a brighter red. But, again, it's a matter of personal choice, I
saw the option on a 2005 coupe and I'm glad I chose the gray. But,
I'm sure if you ask the guy who bought that one from the dealer, I'll
bet he would say he likes it better than my interior.

Whatever you choose, I hope you're as thrilled with the color as I'm
sure you'll be with the performance <VEG>

I saw one at the dealership a few weeks ago. The interior color was bright,
like the torch red. Personally, I though it was Butt Ugly.

If your questions is are the seats & exterior the same color, then
they answer is no. Well that is according to my eyes. Your eyes may
perceive something different. You also have to remember that it is
not the entire interior that is red, just the seats. To me this sets
up an immediate clash with the rest of the interior.

Color combination is always 100% a personal choice. What you like is
what you like. I highly suggest that if you are doing research that
you head down to your local dealer(s) and checkout one for yourself.
If you like it, you like it. If not, then you have good taste :)

As mentioned in my original question, I have gone to the dealers - they
didn't have any in stock, and couldn't answer the question. Neither could
Ford's 800 number.

That said, thanks very much, John, .boB, and Zombywoof, for your help.
Looks like you may have helped me avoid making a big mistake in color
schemes.

P.S., no, I have no taste when it comes to color schemes (thank God my wife
does!). I'm like a little kid - I love bright colors! Hence the need for
your help. Thanks again.

I love bright colors as well, but there is such a thing as too much of
a good thing.

I think the Black Mustang with the red and black interior would look hot hot
hot.. it would be a real jaw dropper.
