Startrd my 2012 charger shopping.

Ive started my search for a 2012 charger and I finally found one in my favorite color; tungsten metallic. They seem a bit hard to find. Good price, low mileage, clean carfacts (carfax?) and the test drive was AWESOME. I love everything about this car.. almost.

This would definitely be the car to buy but the only issue I had was the light frost beige interior. Not sure if I like the match with tungsten metallic and im a bit scared of how easily itll get dirty.

Do any of you guys have this interior? What do you think (keeping clean/ color match with tungsten)?

Was thinking I could buy some black leather seat covers but then it wouldnt match the beige on the doors. Are there any solutions?

Thanks. :beer:

If you don't mind me asking, how much are they asking for it (I'm assuming it's used since you said it's low mileage).

If it is used, you might compare it with a new 2012 (most dealers should still have them)'s November, and they're getting 13's in, so they may be willing to make you a good your interest would probably be cheaper on new than on may end up with a better deal all around.

As to your other question, no, I don't have any suggestions...and I agree it wouldn't look right with black seat covers.

The beige interior isn't as bad as you'd think. I had a similar setup with my previous GMC Sierra. It was Storm metallic gray and beige interior and was a piece of cake to keep clean and it didn't show the dirt like you'd think. I used leather wipes on it once a week and it always looked new.


Now with that said,... put your local dealer to work. If this isn't the car you want, then have them locate it.

Beige on black goes nice...but personally Im not digging this combo.

I'd give MCO_Carter's suggestion a shot..Im sure dealers around will be wanting to empty their lots...

I was originally looking at a certified used one but ended up getting a great deal on a 2012 that I love. Look into the 2012s because you could probably get a great deal and have a brand new ride. Good luck.

Impressive, most impressive!

I got a 2012 SXT/sport pkg (spoiler/stabilizer/chrome18"/leather shift and steering wheel and a few other things) in August thorugh No dealers I could get to would touch the price and I got what I wanted-same color as you. So look there to see if they can come up with what you want or to shop with. Bought the car on my smartphone while strolling on the bay in San Diego. Not trying to be a shill, but it sure beat dealing with a sales guy. The car came in from a dealer about 130 miles from home. Never ould have got there myself and the local was not much interested in selling anything not already on the lot.

that's the color I wanted for my interior, but you couldn't find any on the lot, so I got one with an all black interior (toxic orange 2011).....where are you located? I may be open to swapping seats and door panels...
