Yes.....I hear that an interior can be converted to leather for about $1000 from
my dealer (I was considering it but....) so.....
tell your friend to get the sport seats, and have the interior recovered in

the seats, front and back, is what they're after, right? And the sport steering
wheel/shift knob is already leather.
