I really want ivory leather and it's only available on red, hematite, black or white. White's out, my other car's white. I know what black looks like and the dealers only seem to have black white or silver round here so far...Pics please? These catalog swatches don't help!

Do you live in Canada?

As far as I know Hematite Gray is only available with the black interior in the US

I looked at a 2013 Hematite EX-L today, nice and clean! Hematite and Modern Steel are my two favorite colors on the Accord.

Thanks genius, I didn't think of that! What would i do without you? The world needs more trolls, keep posting useless banter. For anyone of a similar level of intelligence the vh2k, I'll offer that I've been to 4 dealers within 50 miles of my house, none of which have basque red in stock. The hematite i saw was on a cloudy, rainy day, would love a sun shot of both. Around here there's only 4 or 5 14's on any given lot.

The Basque Red is a more consistent hue on any given day, the Hematite changes from a grey dominant hue under low light conditions and to a more green dominate hue under very sunny days. Pictures won't do it justice because of this instability, so definitely see one in person to make a definite choice. If you want a lot of attention then go with the Basque Red, if not, then go with the Hematite. I personally don't regret the colour choice I made, it is one of the top five things I love about my Accord.:thmsup:

I really wish they didn't un-sticky the 9th gen pics thread. Now we got pics threads everywhere. ?!?!?

Anyways. I agree with post above. Hematite is a extremely difficult color to take a picture of. It looks REALLY green in pics. Almost poopy green. In person its much darker 90% of the time, and only in direct sunlight is green dominant.

I actually hated the color originally. The Woman loved it and choose it. I only hated it because I really wanted Grey or white on black - so maybe I was being childish :) But the Grey had too much purple in it for the woman's taste, and white was like a unicorn because I couldn't get it. Hematite is actually a really rich looking color, and while its still growing on me personally, I constantly get compliments on it. So far its a very easy color to maintain. Hides dirt well, and is very shiny - much shinier then my previous PMM Accord or other grey cars I have had. Lots of metallic too.

mine is half way down this page

I was torn between black and Basque red. I though the Red on the Sport went well with the car. Somehow, I feel like my rims have more of a Matt finish to them then shiny which goes well with the car, giving it a darker look. It has been a fairly easier color to maintain as well. With the tints it looks even better.

The pics are attached.

I'll have to semi disagree with you on that, this car I would have to wash every 5 days, dust/dirt builds up really quick, especially where I live. Once it's nicely washed, the metallic really pops out and love it! No regrets on this color at all.

Found black/ivory on the lot and slapped the sold sign on it. Only basque red i found was on a sport, and it was so dirty I couldn't tell what color it was. I'll just have to appreciate the red on the road when i see a clean one one day!

I parked next to Hematite yesterday. It was pretty sunny, around noon. That car looked gray, so much so that I thought it was MSM initially. In fact, my son almost tried to get into that car. However, when I compared it side by side with my MSM, you could tell clearly it was dark green. Not sure if I like it, but an interesting color.
