Front seats seem totally fine to me. If you don't like the Patina, add some filler and dye. I see no reason to recover them. I wish I had the opportunity to drive an auto. Swapping to a manual wouldn't be all that high on my list of things to do either. My first order of business would be driving, lots of driving.$58k wins it.
Pretty good outlay for a CSA. However, she looks super clean. Just needs to swap in that manual (hope it's a mech speedo) and redo the front seats.
