Quite a list and totally accurate. I never really thought about it before but as you say, you can't have leather seats with twister green or bungee red trim.

you can't have leather seats with twister green


That is why I didn't get the leather seats. I loved the twister green.

When you get leather on a pulse model what colour is the leather and what colour is the dash?
Diesel Dave
On a pulse, the leather would be black and the trim would be twister blue grey. On a passion, the leather would be black and the trim would be bungee grey.
