If I’m reading the chart correctly, we can conclude GM made $#*tty charts.

With that said, I wonder why they called it neutral instead of taupe?

Interesting. I thought there was a tan. If not, I suppose the neutrals are of different shades over the years. Meaning, if one has light neutral (like myself), I just can't pick any neutral when searching for a replacement part (or paint). I need to ensure it is light neutral, rather than medium neutral (which I assume is a darker shade).
Medium Neutral II, at least as of 1997-1999 era, is tan.

Is Neutral and Tan the same interior color?
I want to make sure I’m looking for the correct interior color.
Neutral is lighter than medium neutral II,

The secondary color (the part below and above the window switch panel/vent is not neutral, the tan on most of the door is neutral.

oh yeah, 108 is the speed limiter on my park avenue (17 inch wheel cars got 127mph)
no, thats a 1999 oldsmobile aurora. But the color names should be the same across GM
In 2000 GM changed, at least for cars, the naming convention for exterior colors and possibly interior.
