Ummm... If I am not mistaken they are the same front grille. Only the headlights are different.

i would spend the extra cash and get the leather, xenon headlights, LED tails and so on

Thats just my opinion

The smile will still be the same no matter what

How good is the leather on the 2010 vs the earlier models? The leather on the earlier modesl I've seen seem to wear pretty good.

well its not going to be luxury leather quality but as long as you take car of it you should be fine. Here in FL its essential to keep it clean and using leather polish is a life saver. Seeing how your in Texas I am sure this is something you would need to make sure you do as well. I dont have leather seats in my mazda but I did in my BMW when I had it and it was torn up because I never kept up with it the way I should have. But that was only on the sides when I slid in and out.

Personally if I got the new 3 it was be a GT because the lights alone would sell me on it. I hate the headlights of the new 3 without the Xenons, they look so boring compared to the GT headlights.

I love the leather seats in my S2000. The leather isn't plush as say a Lexus might be but it holds me in place quite well. I guess I'll have to take another look at the headlights (the smile is distracting). I noticed a difference in the taillights, though.

Just traded in my '06 GT for the 2010 GT (loving it, btw). The leather on the '06 held up really well. The only thing that was noticeable is the left-side butt lip (lol - don't know another way to say this) started to crease a little...from me sitting on it while getting in and out of the car. Yet, I thought it could have been much worse.

One other note: I think the '06's leather breathed a little better. Maybe it's my imagination, since the '06 has little air holes and the 2010's is solid.

IMO, the leather is high quality and holds up extremely well.
