that sounds nice to me.

you would probably want to find a car with glacier to look at in person, because while I and many others love the texture of it, some people don't at all.

Note that on the 128 you can only order the glacier trim with one of the expensive package options. I forgot which.

It's the premium package at $3,700. Ouch. Might as well get a stripper 135 if you're going that route.

I was thinking 135 but with the extras i want and after adding leather which i gotta have and lumbar seats the 3500 (through military sales) is not that much more for premium package.

Everything you said looks good. Just one huge thing, change that 128 to a 135.

glacier kinda looks like fish scales. i've never seen any trim like it in any other car. i think it looks really nice and i was originally going to get it. but i like the poplar better :-)

coral red looks beautiful with any gray, any black, AW, and even blue as i've seen on this forum haha. i think its really awesome to get red leather on a car of this price. space gray will be lighter than sgm, and without some of sgm's crazy color changing illusionary properties, but still looks great. you have a great combo picked out.

and don't listen to what most 135 owners say about the 128, 230 hp, 200 lbs lighter than the 135, and 0-60 in 5.7 seconds is absolutely no joke!

Best description to date of Glacier trim.

It just looks a little cheap. So gray polar is the ticket.

the glacier aluminum trim looks FAR from cheap in person. every time that someone gets into my car they always make remarks about how cool the trim looks inside.
