BTW the black looks much darker in person. These photos always make it look kinda grey
*sparx*

Cameras tend to do that to pictures, unless you tell them not to.
This is a realistic color rendition:

I agree... I kind of wish they offered contrast piping instead, like the B5 A4s... I always thought that was cool/classy.

Here's a pic of my car with sports seats/grey leather. This was the only one I already have that somewhat shows the stitching. I will try to take a better one later.

The contrast stitching on the grey sport interior is hardly noticeable.

remember the backrest of the back seat does nto have the contrast stitching for some reason... the bottom does as do the headrests.. so make sure you are not looking at the back seat back.

Re: leather stiching on sports trim (PD Performance)

I was talking about the front seats. When you look closely, you can see that the stitching is darker... it's just not that much darker or thick enough stitching to notice. The black leather seats have MUCH more contrast.

Yeah, the front headrests are just about the only place I ever notice the stitching--and even then not too often.

Don't most of you agree that this is exemplary for most of the visual features on a car (or on any product, for that matter)?
When we select it and right after we bought it, we'll look at the things that matter to us a hundred times a day. After a few days or weeks, they are taken for granted (we know they are there) and we concentrate on more important things (like, look at that chick over there, ain't she hawt!).
That's why I'm saying, colors (and visual features) fade in importance. Functional options, features that we "use", will remain important during the entire ownership. We don't "use" color, or stitching, for that matter.
Nice to have, though.
