Do you get yellow tint in your grey 5 gen interior?

For those with grey interior in 5 gens. How would you describe the actual shade of grey? Would you say it's neutral or with some yellow to it?

Also, do you get partial yellowing of of the carpeting and mats? I tried to clean my mats yesterday and no matter how much carpet cleaner I dumped into it the yellow areas remain. I scrubbed with Resove and Oxyclean and they just don't budge. The foam just runs off perfectly clean.
Hope someone has a working solution..

I find that the two cool-tone dash tones have an understated appeal...The tan is a cool tone that goes with the gray much more than would warm beige...hence my gray wheel cover and seat covers rather than a beige version. I tried the tan wheel cover but it was a garish contrast.

The floor carpet does have yellowed spots that seem permanent, but the floor carpet is covered by full sized full-pile gray floor mats from my departed Altima...and rubber mats on top of them.

Hard to tell from the pic...is this a tan version of the interior?

Thanks.

The seat fabric underneath...is it slightly greenish/yellowish grey or is it more or less neutral?

Kitacamry I've seen that same wheel cover in auto stores and walmart, when you purchased the cover did it have a warning label on the box saying "this product is known to cause cancer" ?

The dash is obviously two-toned, with that beige on the bottom and gray on top...but it's not anywhere near the warm tone beige color option of that steering wheel cover.

of course.
Let me ask it this way, is the hue of the seat fabric pretty close to the fabric part of the door panels? That, to me has a bit of yellow tint while still being generally grey.

(Reminds me of the photography classes I took more than a decade ago. The hardest part of the color printing was to detect a subtle overall tint especially after two+ hours with the same picture )

Welllll.....the color code FB45 is supposed to be tan....but the seat's color is not the tone I associate with tan.

Anyway...here are more pix...
EDIT: 1st shot revised for brightness/tone....

thanks for the pics. The seat looks a tiny bit whiter than mine, but it's very dependent on lighting and the camera.

I bet you can remove most of the yellow in your foot well by following this http://homemakerchic.com/2012/07/03/...n-and-vinegar/
I tried this on my rear mats. It works better that Oxyclean and Resolve and is fairly easy.

Don't do it on the seats though. It will lift the gray color and leave lighter color marks. I guess seat fabric is less durable than the carpeting.
