QUESTIONS:

I'm in the market for a 2013 and I have a few questions.
I plan on ordering this car most likely because I DO NOT WANT the micro-fiber cloth insert. So my first question is: Is that even possible to order the car that way? Question 2: If I can order it withouth the micro-fiber, will the center sections just be leather like the rest of the seat? Lastly, if I order the carbon fiber hood, it's just the insert without the fancy carbon fiber weave thingy on it right?

1) you get either mircro-fiber or suede, pretty sure those are your only options.

2) The only thing that comes carbon fiber is the hood insert (has the vents). It comes in carbon fiber (fancy weave thingy) or matte black.

It isn't possible to order a ZL1 without the microfiber seat inserts. The interior is almost standard except for the suede steering wheel and shifter cover option. The microfiber is holding up great in my car and is much cooler than leather. I also have the black painted insert in my hood. For 2013 it is now painted gray. You can't tell it's carbon fiber by just looking at it.

All hood inserts are carbon fiber. Some have the weave painted over, others have the weave exposed. The carbon fiber is there no matter what

Are you certain all inserts are carbon fiber? I see an option to choose on the gm website.
If I want just the painted metallic insert with no weave, is there a choice for that?

I'm not trying to be difficult here but the one I saw was not matte black. It was either a very dark gray metallic or black metallic like the 45th anniversary car. It was on a black 2013 car.

Cool. I honestly couldn't tell if the insert was gray as you've mentioned or black. If it was gray, it was very very dark plus it was a metallic paint vs a solid. Almost reminded me of the 45th anniversary car.
I'm still wondering about the seats though. A dealer has me a bit confused. He said I could order leather. Hmmmmmm.

2013s without exposed carbon fiber insert are painted Ashen Gray Metallic, the same color as when you order a car in AGM. So yes it is metallic. My 2012 is painted matte black.

So to sum it up...

- you can order your carbon fiber insert painted gray or exposed which is a coat of clear over the carbon fiber so you see the pattern. either way it's carbon fiber material
- you can order a stripe; it will be dark gray no matter which insert you pick
- you can order the suede package which is just steering wheel and shift knob, otherwise it's leather which sounds like what you want
- seats are standard but you can order a sunroof (if stripe was ordered it will not be on the roof w/ a sunroof)
- you can order an auto transmission
- you can order the premium wheels instead of the black ones which are standard
- you can order Nav if it's available now.

I think that's about it. Everything else is standard

I believe the seats come standard with the black leather. The suede optional package comes with the seat centers,the dash,steering wheel and shift knob. It does not come standard with any suede.

All zl1s come with suede (micro fiber) seat inserts. The package just adds the steering wheel and shifter. I do not have the optional package and my seats have the suede inserts.

Thanks Mlee,

I did not know. I have ordered one without the suede package. I did not know the suede package only included the steering wheel and shifter, and the dash and seat inserts were standard.

You're going to love it... I really wish I didn't have the suede steering wheel. It looks great but just doens't feel right in my hands. ( but that's just me, most like it).

I've had my car since April and the new car smell of those seats has not changed. My wife comments on it every time we get in the car.

the suede package confuses everone.

All ZL1 have the dash and seats that way period as has been stated numerous time.

the suede package is the steering wheel and the shift knob but it is a complete rip off because the parts add up to like $275 or something and they charge you 450 or 500.

The exposed carbon option is $600?? I think to me it is a good option becasue you could always piant that later if you want but nobody is going to want to epose a painted insert later and may have flaws that is why they choose to paint it.

that being said the black cars look great with ahsen gray inserts. every other collor I think the carbon look better but looks are subjective. the ashen gray with ashen gray insert made me kind of flaccid for the first time in 37 years. I like the contrast on the insert for some reason.

almost every car dealership though has a leather company they work with so if you hate the suede beath them up on it. dealer cost is about 1k to refinish a car in good leather 1200-1500 in premium. they make alot of these cars make them get you want your want.

Thanks mlee I feel like Im getting a bonus here! I did not order the suede option because I was concerned with how the steering wheel and shifter was going to wear. I thought I heard some members were not happy how it was wearing.Im getting really impatient waiting for this beast.

I was lucky and got to touch both and I like the feel of both. As long you keep the suede clean I like it better. I need to clean mine but after I take it to the dealer on Wednesday. My passenger side mirror isn't dimming at night...
