A client of mine has a 2011 ZCP sedan with 46k on it, that heíll give me for Carmax trade in.

Which is tempting.

Itís optioned entirely wrong. Jerez isnít on my hard stop list, but itís not what I want. The car has NAV and a sunroof. The car does not have heated seats. It needs a little PDR and detail, but itís been maintained.

$26k, though.

Hmm. I am torn.

Navigation plus sunroof is a deal killer for me. The interior makes it a hat trick of nope.

I feel like Nav, while ugly, comes with some potential benefits. And I like sunroofs. I donít see why youíd actively not want one in a car you werenít going to track.

Those seats, though...whoa.

Seems like a good interim measure, and you wouldnít lose too much in a future swap.

I like Jerez, and the 2011+ I-drive is a good interface, even if you never use the Nav, the other improvements are worthwhile.

The interior color is tough to take. How hard would it be to swap in Black heated seats and add the heated seat option?

I actually like the interior. Not as much as a full Fox Red, but better than black.

Also who orders a car without heated seats?

I donít mind red seats or red door cards (though it would be better if the hand grips were black), but the red armrests are ick and the half-red seats are just weird looking. Would be better if they just made the seats red.

Still, seems like a compelling package. Iíd do it, i think.

I don’t understand ordering basically everything *but* heated seats, that’s for sure.
