Not at all. The baseball glove is a perfect analogy. I think cuio is Maserati's best interior color. My neighbor has blue/cuio (or close to) on his Bentley and it works very well. The cuio might contrast/jump out more against the QP's blue body, but I think the cuio is gorgeous, especially w/ black dashes and steering wheel. Like DoctorJim said about his grigio alfieri and cuio w/ black - stunning.
