Have you seen both (speed vs novillo) in person to confirm this? If no then we still need a confirmed answer.

Yeah, that's what I'm thinking but it'd be nice to have a confirmation just to be sure.

See my garage over here <-- for some pics
Can you do me a huge favor within the next few days?...I'm sure your local BMW dealership has at least one M3 in stock (at least all the one's around here do). So is there anyway you can go & see/touch the full leather option to confirm? I have a few days to change my order so I'd really appreciate it.
