    Lloyd's Mats - best color to match XLR "black" carpet??

    Hey guys. My step Father has a 2006 XLR that's inferno red exterior and what they label as "black" interior. The carpet is quite obviously not black, but more of a dark grey, and I wondered if anyone could steer me towards a matching color in Lloyd's mats. I have a set for my '06 CTS-V and love 'em, but I got straight black to go with my light grey carpeting. Held up to the XLR's carpets, black does NOT work though. I've seen "ebony" Lloyds mats before and they seemed to have a green-ish tinge to them that really turned me off of that color though. Would ebony be the best match for the XLR's carpet, or would something like "smoke", "graphite", or "dark slate grey" be better? I know I can see swatches on the various vendor's websites, but that really doesn't help much since who knows how accurate the color is being displayed on any given screen. Any help would be appreciated!

    I purchased ebony Lloyd's mats for my XLR and CTS-V. In both cases they were a perfect match. As long as the XLR's interior is listed as ebony, you should be good to go.

    I've got a 2006 also, ordered Ebony mats from Lloyd's. I was concerned as I installed them because they were definitely darker than the interior. I believe when I got them the only other choice was "Charcoal" and I was wishing I had gone for that instead. But you know what - after looking at them for a few days and soliciting a couple of opinions from friends, it's not a problem - they look great. If anybody notices anything it's the nice embroidered Cadillac crest on them. I'm a stickler but I gotta say the slight color difference does not bother me at all.
