He is right...it is your car

But when you post pics here and that many you're askin for opnions...and mine is like the others...

But it looks like your trim isn't stock looks like chrome trim painted over.
the seats look like recovered comfort seats plus a sport wheel with no sport seats to me looks like the car was HACKED
No floor mats but mud flaps...I guess that doesn't compute...
The M6 wheels look great...but you need to 'fill' behind them with some brakes...yours are vented but small...what motor do you have? 525 or?
Not a big fan of the auto tranny for my car...
Brows aren't for me...
Car is clean I'll certainly give u that...and a lot of effort went in to making it fresh so I'll tip my hat to that effort...

Good Job

They look like standard seats.
The sport pkg could be ordered with any seat. Mine has the heated comfort seats, and I guarantee you'd have no luck getting me to swap for sport seats.

+1 Mine are identical and heated. Quite comfortable actually.

Also, I'm pretty sure mine are fake-a-hide as I doubt leather scratches in black upholstery are supposed to appear white.
