Default Suede seats

Am I seeing this right in photos? If you bought the sueded seats, is it on the dashboard as well? Not for me. Glad I bought all leather.

Only if you selected the Brownstone interior. All other colors have no suede in the dash.

Not true. It can be ordered on a 3lt as an option.

No, he was right. You need to order the color Brownstone to get suede on the dash. The 3LT option puts leather on the dash, not suede.

But you do get a suede steering wheel and shifter on a car ordered with competition seats with suede inserts. Can't wait to see a photo of that.

Brownstone interior (only available as a 3LT) includes suede microfiber on the passenger instrument panel (face between the HVAC vents). This is the only interior color that adds the suede on the dash.

Suede microfiber steering wheel and shifter trim are available as an option. Available on 1LT, 2LT and 3LT with Competition Sport seats. RPO N26 with AE4

Suede microfiber custom wrap (requires 3LT) includes sunvisors, rear header trim, quarter window trim, front header trim, headliner and A-pillar trim). RPO IWE.

Would love to see a pic of the sueded steering wheel and shifter trim. We've seen pics of comp seats with sueded inserts but those cars didn't appear to have the other suede trims.

Why would anyone want "cloth" over Leather?

The Leather looks so much better and high end looking.

And much of the "suede like" material used in vehicles today is not even authentic suede. A lot of it is artificial. Some of the "suede like" material is spun plastic fibers.

I would much rather have the Leather.

The microsuede is actually a really nice durable material. It feels nicer than the leather, IMHO. That's why I've opted for it.

Great info Thanks.

Where would I find info on the differences between the 1LT, 2LT, 3LT, and all these additional choices?

I had no idea about these custom wrap options, that appear to be in addition to the "LT" package.

I have been in CTS-V cars that don't have the inserts, and one that did have the inserts. I liked the comfort, feel, and look of the inserts over all leather. I ordered a 3LT with the inserts and the microfiber custom wrap.

The only bummer I guess is the the leather seating surfaces on the 3LT are "napa" leather, I will be giving that up.
