Was a corporate lease car though. I would think you would have the dealer install it at time of purchase so you don't pay for it outright, but rather amortize it in the lease. Either way, glad it's there. Don't car too much about the carbon seat back or side, but the door sill looks really nice. Of course so does center console and engine bay, just glad I didn't have to pay the MSRP prices to get all of those.
The ceramic brakes are kind of annoying, they squeak in city driving. I've re-bed them, which fixed the problem but only for a couple of weeks. Nice thing about them is you don't have to replace the rotors, pretty much ever. Makes for cheaper brake jobs.
