Seems like this is more likely just the camera/lighting/etc. and not actually a different color?
I don't know, but under natural AZ bright sun light, with the naked eyes, the interior color motif in my car is unmistakeably light tan plastic and light tan seats for sure. The darker taupe plastic may pass as some kind of dark gray, but there's no way the light tan can be confused with light gray. My son who drove me there for the pick up agrees with me, too.

FYI - WO charges your credit card at the time of order, not when they ship. That's not cool when you are given a 3-4 week delivery estimate.

And generally against the credit card merchant agreements.

That's what I thought originally but then considering that it's a custom order due to the personal color and option selection, I think that may justify the advance charge.

What I found not cool is that they don't send out email confirmation about your order to make sure everything is correct. I had to specifically insist on them emailing it to me. They said yes but then forgot and I had to call back 3 days later asking again. Then when they finally emailed it to me, it's a weird file format attachment that when I tried to open it with NotePad to read, the text info inside is all jumbled up and not very readable.

Doesn't this looks like the tan interior color motif to you guys? Of course the seats have been covered charcoal color with the WO covers. But the plastic surrounding sure looks like tan to me. My LEAF looks tan like that.

Has anyone found a really slick, relatively painless way to secure to last two hooks securing the back of the front seat to the cross bar underneath the seat?

Also it might be helpful for someone to post some pictures under the front seat after the finished install...

To answer my own question, I think a long, thin nylon wire wrap for each of the 4 hooks should work pretty well.

By long I mean at least 12 inches so that a relatively long loop can be formed with it (encircling the seat's underneath crossbar) to snag a hook that has been pulled forward by a long loop of string from the back (that has been fished there from the front by a hook on the end of a stiff wire). Then the wire wrap can be pulled snug (but not too tight). Hope this is clear enough.

Instead of a wire wrap another possibility is simply a strong string, again looped around the seat's underneath crossbar and tying the two ends together by a tautline hitch so that the slack in the loop can be adjusted. This approach has the advantage over the former in that the slack in the loop can be easily loosened if it is initially pulled too tight.

I don't have a digital camera with a lens for closeup pics...
