I didn't see it anywhere, but does the LT/RS have a leather wrapped steering wheel?

Edit: And you can't get the stripes in black? :(

I am upset they aren't offering the Nasau blue that was once offered with the 69 :-(. However, everything else is awesome

Maybe i just cant see it but can we just get leather seats or do we have to get lt or lt+rs to get them.
