The thing for me was never dirt, i never had to worry about dirt, only jean stains. But honestly, i think ivory combinations is one of the most beautiful upscale interiors that LR offers. If you don't wear jeans much or you don't mind the constant clean up then i would go for B ebony/ivory. The look never got old for me but the clean up process did, lol.thanks for the perspective. our first sport was rimini and had the ivory interior. our current one has the almond. I liked the ivory better because it was so classy and elegant (the almond is pretty too but just kind of blah after a while. really want the ivory esp since in the ab you can get a combo that minimizes dirt by only putting ivory on the mid section of the seats. it would be doabe with frequent cleaning but the pimiento is intriguing and very sporty.
