Looks awesome. Definitely leaning towards white - but no worries, I'm up in NY! I doubt you'll pass me on the road! :)
Congrats!
So the ST2 with Nav has the upgraded Sony system (same system as in ST3?). So the only thing missing is the HIDs and ambient lighting (and full leather seating of course)?
yeah the ST2 doesnt have power seats either, at least the one at my dealer doesnt, it has a cheesy little lever on the side the acts like a bumper jack to raise and lower the seat. I personally didnt like it, made the car feel cheap!!

That's right - no heated, power seat(s). Not a huge dealbreaker for the power, because once it's set - it's set. Not like I'd need to readjust everything every day, and I doubt anyone else will be driving my car (Buy your own!!!). Heated seats are nice up here in NY on those cold mornings.

Not having power seats is kinda of a bummer. It's not something you use all the time unless you have different drivers of the car and then it becomes more of a pain. It's something I can live with though.

Same way with my Titanium. I wanted power seats and the auto dimming mirror. But in order to get that I had to get the Titanium Premium Package: Leather-trimmed seats, 6-way power driver seat with manual lumbar, reverse sensing system, rain-sensing wipers, auto-dimming rearview mirror and rear armrest with storage for $1500 more. Didn't really want leather so I passed. Funny thing is they made all of that standard on the Ti for 2013 but don't even have the auto dimming mirror available anymore for any models. Not even as an add-on option.

The auto-dimming mirror is a feature I wish the car had. I bet you next year it will be standard.

I dunno. I find it weird it was available in a package and a stand alone option for 2012, but is completely gone for 2013. I know I tried to have it added on mine but they couldn't do it because it would have interfered with the Sync mic somehow.

Really? You can't grab a generic auto-dimming mirror and work/wire it in? They have nice ones with garage door buttons, compass (if that was your thing) for a couple bills. Was going to replace my basic one on my Altima with one after I got it, but just never got around to it.

my Titanium has everything you mentioned and electric lumbar not manual,rain sensing lights as well as wipers, the technology pkg, the handling pkg,wish the side mirrors were auto dimming though. that would be nice to see on the 2014 ST!!!

Not sure if it will be standard, but I DID add a Gentex auto-dimming mirror with Homelink to my ST (Garage Forum | Electronics). Everything seems to work over the few miles I've driven it. I'll report back in that thread after I've had it running for a while if any issues pop up.

Yea! Nice. White looks great. Considered it myself, but my last car was white and I need to change it up every now and then (cause I can't change up my woman!) :in love:
