What color wood in that interior shot?

Richard in NC,
What color wood is that in your interior photo? Is that the "light poplar" or the "dark burl walnut" wood? It looks fantastic, as does your whole interior. Beautiful with the M-Wheel and the stitched leather dash. Gorgeous!

^ that's light poplar. I chose that to match the saddle brown myself. Otherwise I wouldn't go for wood.

Does anyone know how involved it is to change the springs on this 2011 m sport pkg?
The H&R springs I want are about 250.00 usd, what is a fair install price?
I am a DIY guy can I change them out myself?
I'm sure I need to reallign after installing new springs, right?

What are the current options for a hitch on an M-sport?
