In black I would say no...since the vinyl is high quality and already black...so you will hardly notice....

I'd say the opposite, acutally. I'd only get extended in black, because I do not think it looks to good with colors. Black is nicely integrated, and you certainly see and feel a difference.

I would not waste the money on extended black - looks virtually the same- no one would really know - on the other interiors it adds color to the dash and console which IMO is a nice touch. even tho with Silver interior I skipped it. just my 2 cents.

Save the money on extended leather and put that $1100 into your mods.

Do what you like. And going on your first instinct, that is probably what you like.

I ordered black interior, not extended since it is so hard to tell the difference.

Actually, there is no need to worry or hesitate since you can't make modifications to your order once it goes 150 (enters production). You've got what you've got. You'll be fine either way I'm sure...
