2004 RX-8 with Black and White Interior?

I've been toying with the idea of picking up a used RX-8 and found this one locally.

2004 Used Mazda RX-8 4dr Coupe 6-Speed Manual at Lindsay Honda Serving Columbus, OH, IID 18513187

I don't remember them offering a black & white interior. Is this OEM or some aftermarket re-upholstery?

Those seat heater buttons also don't look stock for a 2004. But, I doubt someone would go to the trouble of changing the door card colour if they wanted to redo the seat leather. This looks stock, just not from this car.

Also this doesn't have a sunroof, yet it has heated leather seats, so it's probably a Sport trim that someone swapped a GT interior into. I think the white/black interior was offered overseas in some special editions. I kinda dig it.

Yep, seat heaters don't look stock.

I'd just be a bit careful around an aftermarket heated seat... These things draw a lot of current, so I'd make sure they are wired properly.

Don't the OEM leather seats have those weird lines on the bolsters? I'm not seeing that. It looks to me like reupholstered seats and steering wheel. It is not uncommon to redo door panels with matching leather.
