Well if one springs for the Black Label, there is a Black Label Drivers Package, which is priced at $2395, which looks like it keeps the BL wheel and seats/interior trim.

^ WheelBoutique!!
wheels are more important to some than others - why should they spend their money aftermarket instead at the dealers'?
( =+ composite wheels like the Mustang )
( or maybe magnesium? )

isn't what Jpd is referring to the RHAPSODY Theme which has just a bit more leather (bolsters) than the Conti concept had?
afaik
they're keeping that Conti-exclusive ... for the first year

--tho imho gray isn't the easiest color to make impressive, tho I remember a gray-on-gray-on-gray high-end 3-series at an LA autoshow that I liked a Lot...
--& feels like Lincoln is using subtle tints-of-gray (Muse & now Jade) to combat graphite-ism...
--I'd like a soft-yet-architectural gray paired with semi-matte silver &or black patent leather

I wasn't referring to his comment. I was referring to the folks (@stevejohnsonjs and @fordforlife) who said the Jade interior was more gray than green. I saw a jade interior in a presentation (on a projector too) and my mind told me it was green because of the exterior color. Probably just my mind playing tricks on me. Looked like a pretty lighter green. Like a light olive. Which I'd prefer over gray.

I can't even take this right now LOL. I'm going back into hiding until some more Geneva debuts.

(I'm assuming you already know this and are just fucking with me lol, but just in case, Rhapsody is the BL theme name for the blue interior.)
