Worth it? Difference between 23(B/S) and the 24(B/S) package

I Understand B package is for manual and S is for automatic but besides that, is the step up worth it between the 23 and the 24?

If you want the options in it, yes. Personally, I like my plastic steering wheel and gear shift knob. No need for fake leather here. The only option I consider absolutely necessary is a/c, unless you plan on being topless all the time.

It was too expensive for me, so I got the A/C only and then got some 17" alloy "S" rims/tires take-offs from craigslist for $495.
Don't miss the leather steering wheel or shift knob.

Are you looking at a 2-door or a 4-door?

Do you want power windows & locks?

Do you plan to keep the factory wheels and tires (at least until the tires are worn out), or do you plan to swap right away?

I drove my 2012 for a few years with the leather wrapped steering wheel and loved it. My new 2015 has a plastic-y PoS for a steering wheel and I hate it. I immediately threw a cover over it and am now thinking I want to replace it. I can't tell you why that damn plastic wheel feels so crappy but it does. Maybe I'm just used to the nice leather feel.

For the record, 23 means manual and 24 means automatic. That is true across all the models.
