oh ok, gotcha. I have only ever seen V50/S40 R-designs with white layout so not sure if its model specific or just so popular.

I think it's just popular, however I feel that particular seat design has aged horrifically, and the white parts end up turning browny orange with dirt and muck.

Would definitely stick with all black leather where possible as even when dirty it looks a heck of a lot better than white leather.
