The interior choices for 2004-2005 US Prius was either tan, or dark
grey/burgundy.  (Burgundy is a type of red wine, so the color on the
Prius dash is a dark red/maroon, although in certain lighting
(particularly if you have a lot of dust on it like on mine!) it can
look grey.)

Here's a rather new 2004 with the grey/burgundy interior.  Most of my
photos are in a bright light situation, so it's hard to tell the
contrast, but this is about the best of them:
(other photos of the Oct. 2003 Worcester MA Prius gathering, with lots
of photos of this 1st 2004 Prius in New England, and the e-Plane, is
at:  http://www2.kluge.net/2004/  )

BTW: if you're in the MA area, I'd be happy to show you my black BC
2004 Prius with the grey/burgundy interior for comparison!

BTW2:  sunscreen will stain the color on the door panels, so be careful
where you rest your arm when protected!

 Thanks a bunch for the photos, so now it does appear to be a color
mistake.  I think the armorall now darkened what was already a lighter
red.  So now I'm not sure what to do, anybody have any experience with
armorall removal?  Thanks!
