Cargo cover, gen 4 wagon

I have a chance to buy a cargo cover for my 2000 wagon, the seller says he has two, one's light gray and one is darker gray he can't be sure what colour code either is.

He's a couple thousand miles away, so viewing it ahead of time is not a option.

My 2000 interior is gray too, I don't know if it's lite or dark.
My door sticker.....

Can anyone tell me which one is more likely to match?

Both are grey, one will match one will contrast a little. As long as the cargo cover does what you want, what's the problem?

2001 SES Wagon. 210k and strong running.

There's no problem, but given the choice between one that matches perfectly and one that slightly off-I prefer to pick one that matches perfectlY.
Needless to say, the vendor isn't willing to ship COD and I'm not willing to pay ahead of time so we're at a stalemate, and I'll go without a cover for a while longer.

I guess I'd ask for "in the sun" pictures of each. Then print 'em and do a color comparison. My cargo cover is stored away in my tool room--wouldn't be much help as it's tan (goes with Toreador Red.) I wasn't being flippant, it's just that they are getting to be very old, inexpensive cars and I probably don't take 'em as seriously as some might.

According to the VIN your interior color is 'medium graphite'

Good point, and the rear cover matches the car seat color. My last 4 Bulls all had the same interior color, 3of them wagons. Must be a common color.
