Also, how is the black interior as far as heat and dirt? I've never owned a car with black interior, and I haven't been drawn to it ever, but it would be a nice contrast to a silver exterior.

Well of course this is just IMO, but I would never have anything but dark-colored upholstery. Yes, it MIGHT get a little warmer than with a lighter-color, dust neither I nor wifey have noticed (and, believe me, wifey is a friggin' PhD when it comes to cleanliness), but in my experience lighter-colored material gets dirty, quickly, and looks it (e.g. sweat in a pair of blue jeans and then drive the car for a while). If you have the time and don't mind being particular about cleaning the interior, then fine. But dirt should be at least a consideration.
