Extended Leather on Novillo Black Interior

Has anyone seen the Extended Leather on the Black Leather ? Does it make a difference since both are black ?


Thanks

dude, just go to any color thread. there are plenty of pics of black without extended leather. you probably just can't tell because it looks almost the same. hence, "waste of $$$ IMO"

Normally the area under the shifter will be plastic, this makes that area leather...but the black blends in too well with the surrounding thus making it less appealing than say Fox Red Extended, or Bamboo Beige extended...

Do you mean the dealer may have it before March 8? How will you have it if launch is March 8? Please explain.

It can only help to have more leather. It can't hurt. Whats another G when you are spending 70K on this car.

Sorry I did not get back to you sooner, apparently my car has already been unloaded in Georgia back on the 14th of Feb. My SA told me that it was making its way to the VPC in Charleston, SC. But From What I Have been reading it might be held at the VPC until March 8th or maybe it will be shipped sooner to be able to pick it by March 8th. Regardless it just sucks waiting!!!

I am surprised that Extended leather did not include the dash and alcantara headliner...its a shame.

It includes the lower half of the dash, in addition to the center console.

was going through the same debate myself but the extended leather on a black interior isn't really noticeable so decided to spend the money elsewhere like 19" wheels Extended leather seems to look best on Fox red
