Some new photos were posted on the Pontiac.com G8 site in the gallery section, however, it still leaves some questions, ie, in one shot, it shows a red/blk gear shifter (like what holden does), but in the shot of the dash, you can just see the red on the passenger seat, but it has a black shift lever.
Also, the dash shot you can see that it has the volts and oil pressure in the upper display (in red), so does that mean we get it (never really mentioned anywhere, and hard to see in the photo below) - also as mentioned in anouther thread, the 888 logo is shown on the silver trim on the passenger side.
The Holden Accessory interior leather gear knob upgrade offers an additional styling piece to the interior of the VE. Comprising uniquely styled leather these sports gear knobs provide the driver with a more positive grip. Available in Onyx , Red Hot, Ignition and Light Urban for automatic transmitions.
looks like the shifter could be a dealer accessory? or like someone mentioned, just a poor photoshop :P
