the 00-01 RS's had options for leather interior...the shift boot, door cards and seats had leather...as well as shifter and steering wheel but I think all RS's have that.

99 I think is when they got white gauge faces and a lot of 01 RS's have this cheesy looking faux carbon fiber dash kit...

There are a bunch of differences depending on year too. The L/TS has different seats, struts, springs, ride height, smaller front discs, single pot calipers, rear drum brakes and ebrake assembly, exhaust, wheels, tires, steering wheel, shift boot, no sunroof, dash storage bin, door cards, speakers, guage faces, brake booster, proportioning value, opt. fog lights, clutch type, shift lever, shift knob, hood, grab handles, cup holder, floor mats, badges, no side skirts, black mirrors, black door strips & handles, opt mud flaps, engine, gear ratios, smaller tranny internals, drive ratio, no rear lsd, no abs, optional cruise.
The OBS has some of the above and adds a few things like two-tone paint and a rear power outlet and cargo tie downs, etc.
