But the seats are leather. In about 5 minutes my ass was a sweltering swamp. My back was a waterfall draining into said swamp. Your only other seat option is plastic (they call it "leatherette" but it's bleeding plastic).
What the hell is wrong with cloth !? It's light, it's cool and breathable, it's cheap, it's durable, it's the perfect car seat material. I've read that BMW puts cloth seats in its cars in Europe, it's only America where they think they have to play into this "leather is luxurious" retardation.
Bleck. I've also decided I don't really love the fat spongey M sports steering wheel. I'd rather have a thin hard one with molded grip. Like, say, the one in my beloved Prelude. It makes you feel more intimately connected with the road, and I like being able to get my whole hand around it.
Anyhoo, the only big decision left for me is manual or automatic (steptronic). Normally I would definitely go manual, but the steptronic is pretty damn good and the manual-mode control on it still makes you feel somewhat connected
