I'm probably going to buy an EX sedan soon, and was wondering if it was possible to special order it with leather interior and the 5 spd manual tranny. They are mutually exclusive, at least on the website. I'll talk to the dealer as soon as I think about it, but was wondering if anyone else had done it. Thanks!

Thanks. I'll try calling the dealer today and see what I can finagle. I'm buying it as a second car for good gas mileage, so I'd rather stick with the EX over the SX ;)

In case anyone else was wondering, it is impossible to get EX leather from the factory with a 5spd. However, the dealer said that they can put leather seats in it through a 3rd party company, though I'm skeptical to try that, especially since it probably won't get heated seats or the leather steering wheel/shift knob.

Haha no thanks. I bought the Forte so I can turn my Corvette into a dedicated track car, so I'll be blowing enough money as it is :D
