Yep, the black leather and carbon trim go well together. It looks nice towards the end of the day and all you see is the red instruments and the weave of the carbon. I'll posts some pics once the wife gives me the car for 5 minutes.

But again...thats just my opinion though, take with a sunday beer and some yorkshire pudding.


This is a poor pic with my phone camera but here you go as a start:

Carbon fibre belongs in racing cars. It doesn't seem right to have a road car decked out in CF, IMO.

I had CF "effect" in my 156 selespeed, it looked great, but it felt cheap - hows this version? Personally I don't think the real cold (very cold at this point!) aluminium trim in a 159 is best.. but I've never seen the CF in the flesh

Anyone got pics of the part leather seats?

I see the MY2011 have foldy mirrors and rain sensor again... my 09 doesn't and it annoys me a bit (although I understand the rain sensor has a mind of its own).. Pics of the seats on the car configurator look the same as my full leather ones..
