    All the base cars have cloth interior and all the premium cars have leather interior.

    The base cars have black faced gauges and don't have the 'My Color' dash so the blue is the only color for the dash lights.

    The premium cars have white faced gauges and the 'My Color' dash so that you can choose the color of your dash lights.

    The regular 18" inch wheels are standard on the base and premium models. The Brembo brakes are an option on the base and premium models.

    How many guages do you have in your instrument cluster?

    If it's 4 like Greg's (z28th1s) then it's not a premium, if it's 6, it is...

    Looks great! I'm doing the steering wheel swap asap as well. I like how the base shift knob feels but your new one looks better. How does it feel compared to the stock one?

    The volume buttons on the wheel don't work?

    Thanks :beer:

    I like the feel of the new knob. I used to run the chrome stick Hurst shifters with the white ball shift knobs on my Foxbodies over the years, so I'm very used to the feel of the round shifter knobs.

    No, the volume buttons don't work.

    From what I have heard the factory shift light is not adjustable!
