Everything inside is leather, except for the parts that aren't.

It sure do. I had my windows done with the new 3M non-metallic tint (35%) and it's perfect. Can still see inside the car so it's "almost" legal but it really helps with the inside temp.
I work afternoons so my blue/black 06 sits outside on the shadeless blacktop driveway until 2:30PM. By then it really cookin' out, the interior is hot, but the seats don't burn you.
Tint rules!

Seats are all leather, (haven't checked the backs) shift boot is leather, and pretty much everything else is leather EXCEPT for the "faux-suede". That is not leather! Hope that helps.

Not at all. You just didn't do a good enough job of explaining what information you needed. Now you have -- and now we can help.

The front and rear seating surfaces are leather. The sides and backs are not. The shift boot is leather. All the suede surfaces are not.

As for the sides and backs not being leather -- that's commonplace these days. Some people say it's cutting corners -- but, actually, it helps build a longer lasting seat as compound curves wrapped in leather will crack and split faster than surfaces that are not.

Hope that helps.

Brings up a question about interior care. Periodic Lexol conditioning for leather surfaces works great...but what would you use for the sides/backs/headrests? Leather conditioner...or something like Vinylex?? Or nothing???
