Im still undecided if I want to go LG/FE or LG/BM. That green on green is really hard to tell through pictures. Cant pass up that LG though

I've had Launch Green and Forest Edge selected from the start. I like how Forest Edge looks in the configurator, but it looks darker green in this picture from the factory. It might just be the lighting and camera settings.

I'm LG/BM. The forest edge interiors have that funky gray/reddish brown accent color. It looks okay on the inspiration boards but I can't find the recent interior photos. It seems like that color was at least on the door panels and the steering wheel?

I think in the first photos of FE interiors that color was absent or not as prominent, and it made the interior look cleaner and more coordinated.

I have been LG/BM from the beginning. I am going LG because of the “rare factor” of being an LE preorder. I do simply like the color anyway, though. I chose BM because black has been a bit more rugged when going into dirty places in my experience.

I originally wanted my R1S to be Forest Green / Ocean (the show car). I really really want FE interior, but dont know about Forest on Forest. After seeing the Launch Green I'm really intrigued, but every time I see a green subaru outback in real life I dont love it. After the truck launch yesterday I switched to Rivian Blue / Ocean. Its a tough decision calculus

1. Launch Green /FE - exclusive AND economic (all other colors are 1500-2500, so basically the cost savings of paint gives you the free upgrade interior)
2. Forest Green / Ocean - its super classy and obviously what they picked for the show car
3. Rivian Blue / Ocean - their signature color

My view is the exclusive stuff costs more for a reason. They wouldn't put an inferior color/paint to be the upcharge item. I really cant decide.

LG/FE config all along unchanged. Only reason I may go with BM in the end would be to save the $2K
