I'm thinking that GM will ultimately wind up as being owned by a consortium of investors led by SAIC. They're (GM that is) really going global.

Plausible, though difficult to trace or prove. Those in power, regardless of their political affiliation, simply do not want the consuming public-at-large to know the truth. Bad for business I would suppose.

I do believe it however.

They are a big player in commodity trading, plus well connected with the government, so they are definitely capable.

And if they are willing to short their own stock for profit(happened earlier this year), they will probably do anything....

Capability+Willingness=?

Surely, though I'm stunted in my ability or just incapable of dreaming-up such nefarious schemes.

About the cloth inserts, I had no idea either - I had only test driven 2LTs before deciding on a 1LT RS, and when it came in I was like "wow the interior's very...black..." Also I agree, cloth on the dash is a little strange and took some getting used to.
