  • Poll for Owners with Natural Dipped Interior

    I've had conversations now with a couple of C8 owners who have the Natural Dipped Interior and have been asked by several others with orders what I think about possible glare and care concerns. Since I don't own this interior myself, I'm interested in knowing what actual owners think about the Natural Dipped related to these two possible concerns. Thanks for you input!

    The only reason we didn't order the 3LT Natural Dipped Tan interior is that our Ferrari basically has the same color trim. Glare there is a 'non-issue' in our opinion.... and there's a lot of sunshine in Texas!

        I have the natural dipped interior. Two things, 1: I bought the premium carpets (Black with tan stitch) which IMHO adds contrast to the interior. 2: Crude but effective, I fashioned a black vinyl panel to cover the drivers side dash, which reduces the glare significantly. its easily removable.

            We have the Natural dipped interior and absolutely love it as does EVERYONE else who sees it. It’s perfect with Zues Bronze.

            We also have the premium carpets black with tan stitching as our car is a daily driver in all kinds of weather for 9 months of the year ,tan carpets will be for show.

            I have found that there is enough black area on the passenger side so that glare is not a problem at all . On the drivers side I extended the black reflection of the “hud”mirror a few inches using the black stick on fabric used to cover the visor safety labels. Creates a perfect totally unobtrusive non -glare visual window. Don’t like it....pulls off in seconds.

              I can't vote because I don't have my Natural Dipped C8 yet. But I did have an early Kalahari C7.
              With regards to the "glare", it really should be called reflections. Glare is a different problem.
              Either way, polarized sunglasses really help with both glare and reflections. If you don't believe it, borrow or try a pair. If held vertically the reflections are still there but darker. But when looked through horizontally (the way you wear them) the reflections are significantly reduced.

                  I have natural LT2 - did not get LT-3 because when I sat in the demo natural LT3 the windshield with a sea of tan looked too far out - no issues with LT2 natural even though its fake leather.

                      If I remember correctly on the C7, the Kalahari 3LT(?) interior had the dash pad in front on the steering wheel was the Kalahari color in the early years. Later this was changed to a black dash pad. I assumed that this was to reduce reflection.

                      I specifically chose Natural, not dipped, to avoid this dash reflection. I thought that somewhere on a configuration program, there was a specific warning about reflections but don’t recall where.

                        Correct, the reason I changed my 2LT order to a 3LT when I ordered in 2013. Ordered 3LT this time to get all natural. There is a reflection, but it doesn't bother me and sunglasses eliminates it.

                          Like #3 I got Morello dipped but almost went with Natural dipped but didn't because I was concerned about it looking dirty. Would highly suggest the all-weather floor mats and that would address concerns about soiling the carpets. I got those for my car and they are perfect. shopchevyparts.com has good price. (I hope I don't get in trouble or kicked off for recommending a vendor. The same mats area also available on the Chevrolet website under accessories but they are full price if you get them there.)

                            Its crude but effective and easy to remove. Stays in place pretty well.

                              Not sure if this is relevant, but the Mulan Leather in the LT2 is a quasi-fake leather made from leather scraps and with synthetic materials. In my tan colored interiors on my Aston Martins they all prematurely wore through the dye, covered under warranty the seats had to be re-dyed (I had 6 vantages). The LT3 leather is real and very nice and I'm assuming that the dye is stronger or thicker than what Aston used - hopefully.
