You are correct. 

I too thought the GLX didnt come with center console, rear head rest and arm rest, but its not the case here. As far as I've noticed, main differences with the GLS and GLX are,

GLS having

1.HID head lamps

2.Multi function steering wheel

3.Traction control

4. Key less entry 

5.Remotely operated boot lid.

I've seen GLXs with 2 and 5... 😕

6. Automatic AC (Climate Control)

In the Australian market, all models after 2008 came with a double din audio system as standard. The coloured multi info display is also standard in all models after 2010 or so. I think automatic AC is also standard in all models. On the flip side, none of the models after 2010 came with HID projector headlamps. Not even the Evo. They even changed the wiring, so it's not plug and play anymore even if you get a set of HID projectors. But I see that HIDs are still offered in EXs in Sri Lanka.

From all the Lancer EX ads I've looked at during the past few weeks, I wonder if we even have Lancer EXs with black interiors in Sri Lanka? All I've seen are beige or dark grey.

Mine is black - (I got a set of leather seat covers done on top of the black fabric seats from the factory)

Could be but they had lock/unlock buttons on the key itself

I'll ask if I meet the owner again. I think UNIMO custom ordered options as they wished - Some GLX EXs have black door handles, some GLXs don't have the armrest, some GLS versions don't have the engine cover and inner nickel/silver trims, etc etc

I see that there's a covered compartment next to the hand brake lever, I cont have that in my car. Instead there are two cup holders located at that space.

Ah, yes I missed the Auto A/C, also

7. leather wrapped steering and gear lever knob

8. Chrome and wood accented interior trim

About the black interior, there were few machang, and still some cars are available in the sites. There's red GLS and black GLS in the quick site with black interior.

There was a blue color one GLX with full body kit in AL.

And finally, yako BRATT??? that too is having black interior.

lol, was BRATT black? Can't even remember. 

I guess most of the cars I saw that you sent me links of had beige interiors. So assumed black is rare.

Yes, BRATT is black. In fact it was us who persuaded Bracket to go for black interior for his red car.

Mine was a 2007 GLS (Black with Black interior) and it was specked with carbon fiber look interior it was one of a kind as most of them came with beige interior and wood trim

They discontinued getting down GLS after sometime due to higher cost, CIF going above permit limits at the time

GLX came with gray interior
