Likely your pearl white is very similar to our QX and it does pop in the sun or moonlight. A very deep color with several variations. Congrats!

I was also worried about going from black interior on old Armada to tan interior on our new one. The Weathertech mats really help the carpet, and I keep a fresh coat of leather conditioner on the seats.

Biggest issue with the tan are the thresholds under the doors. These areas get pretty scuffed up (of course we have three kids 5 and under). I have to wipe the scuffs off once a month or so.

After this QX, I really won't get another vehicle with a light tan interior. I wanted the black interior when we got this one, but wife had to have the pearl white and the only options were the wheat or stone.

The wheat is rough to keep nice. The leather discolors and you can't hide the age on it nearly as well as a black interior. I baby ours and condition the leather often, but it's just impossible if it's a daily driven vehicle with kids. I have 3- 10, 7, 5. We got the QX right when the middle one was born. My Q7 with black interior- looks fantastic.

Yea we came from the charcoal black, Its way hotter when in sun and truck off as my wife sets in line for hours end due to Charter school, the moon roof helps get the heat out of this one to, I like the lighter colors but liked the black also. Time will tell. This will probably be our last SUV for a while I hope it last for ever. The seats on the Titanium felt larger these feel more wrapped around me which I like. The 2010 was like being in my lounge chair when driving. I was going to wait till the next model hit the floors but decided we really like this model truck stance and it might be going away soon. we already have 500 miles on it from 8 miles when we drove off lot, so its going to get used for sure. We love it and want to drive around all the time.. The Nissan dealer has been good so far about fixing some quirks we've found, give us stock floor mats, net and a cleaning car kit and has washed it 2 times now, 2 years free oil change. They just put some black tire stuff on and it slug on to the wheel wells the pearl shows every bug, grit So they are doing another cleaning and try and remove the residue..My wife wants to put a black Bra on the front to protect the hood bugs love the front end so much I am going to at least put a bug shield on, I haven't seen a Bra yet for these trucks.
I did get 19mpg using cruz control on a 10 mile Intrastate stretch today. My driving habits are horrible with this 5.6L . The Nav is nice and works great and is easy to use. taught about putting cover on the Seats. But dang they look and feel nice so much I hate to cover them up, I assume your Q is even nicer.

Yea we have threatened out 10 year old with her life to be careful. I will probably get the weather tech mats. ours still has the plastic on them.. We lost several compartments having the sun roof my daughter use to use. she likes the wireless head phone dvd setup. My wife likes the fact our daughter lost rear radio controls.. The black Interior was durable..

Weathertech mats are a must. It makes the interior look industrial but it saves the carpets.

I know this is an OLD thread but I wanted to say thank and glad I found it. I recently installed the same sub-woofer and used the instructions posted by SGreenlyn and I have to say it is pretty awesome.
I turned mine 90 degrees CW so my controls are facing the front for easier reach.
I put my control knob on the right side of the steering wheel as that is where my right hand controls the volume and the left side is occupied by my brake controller.
It does require some tuning but overall I absolutely Love the sound. Well worth the price.
Thanks!!
