Default 2008 Carbon Flash SE ( Do I have one? )

I just purchased a 2008 site unseen except for pictures. It says on the sales slip it is a Carbon Flash SE.
I did not know what that was, so I looked it up on the old interweb, and it said there were only 500 built and some of them were base models and some were Redline Models. I have the redline addition with the 2.0 turbo. Well the artical said that the Carbon Flash addition came with Silver inserts in the seats and steering wheel has silver on the gripping spot as well. Here is my delema. The pictures of my car do not have silver inserts they are just all black leather, And te steering wheel is all black as well except where you turn up and down the stereo and where the cruise control buttons. My question is! Could this still be a Carbon Flash SE with out that steering wheel trim and silver inserts in the seats. And also what is one thing that would have only came on the Carbon Flash SE ( besides paint, because mine is silver and hard to tell if it is special or not ) It said they come standard with a monsoon stereo system. How do you know if you have one of those just by looking at it? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks guys, and girls.

from what i remember there were two color special editions. carbon flash was one of them. i remember they all had hood stripes but the other differences i cant remember. i just lookd at 2008 sky brochure and carbon flash isnt a normal color. 9 color choices. think the color was also special to that model. if i find anything else ill post again.

Hi, I just purchased a 2008 Redline Carbon Flash SE. It is a metallic black with silver stripes (tape that can be removed if wanted). It has black seats with silver inserts and SKY emblem, and black steering wheel with matching "silver" trim. I found a GM part label on one of the front fenders (inside) that actually states "Carbon Flash" also. Hope that helps. As far as I know that is how they came in 2008.

I also found out the Carbon Flash SE has a unique VIN number. Mine has a "MJ" in the 4th & 5th digits. Mine is a Manual. An automatic trans may be different.

Using MJ as indicator von Base as well as Red Line will miss out on over 40% of the Carbon Flash Special Edition Cars.

So what does the MJ represent? A CFSE Redline Manual only? What are the other VIN codes for a CFSE?
Thanks,
Dan

As far as I know it does not stand for anything specific. But it seems that Carbon Flash Special Edition Red Line (322 cars) had MJ in VIN and that Carbon Flash Special Edition Base (228 cars) had no unique VIN indicator.

Besides MJ, the Carbon Flash Special Edition cars have MB, MC, MF, MG. But of course those letters are used for thousands of non-Carbon Flash Special Edition cars as well.
