CSLs have a different console altogether. They're made from carbon fiber, for one thing. Nothing like the standard ones.

Black roof is very tricky to pull off if you have a dark-coloured car. I would know.

idk if I'd call it nice... I'd say it can look good. Like in a rockstar kind of way. Not a nice kind of way.

If its matte, possibly. Not enough contrast to be of much difference.
