After glancing at some older MX-Sportif photos, I noticed that the center console has a lacquered glossy appearance. The panels around all the controls have a laminated, reflective sheen to them, just like exterior paint. I haven't noticed these shiny plastic consoles on any of the production photos ... are there supposed to be any available optional interior trims? I recall seeing something about different trim in the available options list, but I don't think I ever saw a photo of one like the Sportif. Gives the interior a VERY classy, upscale look, seriously ... without it, it looks like any other econobox. That console makes it look like a high end car.
