The color is really deceiving as other owners have stated. In the shade or cloudy days it looks black, but when the sun hits it there's a dark sparkly red color. It's really nice.Is your van cordovan color? It looks black. That Braun Ability modification looks like it would be very helpful. Did your van come with 20" wheels?
The wheels that came with it are the 17" OEM Alloy Turbine wheels. I didn't want to go taller than The 20" wheel specs on the more expensive Pacifica packages. Not only because it could cause a rougher ride, but here in New England the potholes and frost heaves are not very forgiving on nice wheels or lowered vehicles.
