Default CT200h Purchase Questions?

Me and my girlfriend are most likely going to purchase a CT200h on Tuesday. We test drove it last week and have been negotiating with the dealership since then. They finally got to a price that we liked and they have the car we want. Its a 2012 CT200h Premium with navigation and it is black on caramel. We live about 3 hours away from the dealership so thats why we dont have the car yet. I had a few questions though. First, I know there arent any cup holders in the back seat but is there an arm rest or anything that folds down in the middle of the back seat? Secondly, I have seen different LED headlights in pictures of CT's. Some are a continuous strip of lights while on others there is a break where the HID headlight is. What is the difference?
Thanks in advance and hope to officially join you CT owners soon.

The continuous strip of LED DRLs is on the CTs with LED headlights (I believe this is a $1000 option in the US)
The one with a break is on the CTs with halogen projector headlights.

LEDs are the new technology and the headlights of the future plus there isn't that little break in the DRL strip. They use less energy and they look sweet. The halogens are cheaper and you can just throw in a cheap HID conversion kit if you don't like the light output or color. I'm going for the LEDs

I would definitely get the LEDs if they are available as an option.

I didn't because here in Canada you need the top of the line CT to get the LEDs

Thanks, we are going to get the car tomorrow. Not sure if the car we are getting has the LED's but judging by the picture I took of it, it doesnt.

I thought the LED headlight option was much more than $1K here (for some reason $2k or more sticks in my head, but I could be wrong). I originally had these as an option, but then gave up on them as it added 4-6 weeks to my already 1-2 month leadtime last year and I didn't want to wait. I put in HID lights and don't regret my decision one bit!

The best part of the headlight package is the auto-leveling feature. I was skeptical until I experienced it. Terrific if you do any driving at night.
