Simple. Many cars, including yours and mine, have what is called an "///M package" inside - usually comprised of an ///M steering wheel, gear shift knob and brake boot. It's pretty common on certain models and is a good thing - enjoy it. RM

That is your typical ///M button. Press it and you have an extra 100bhp. This is not to be confused with Vtec stickers which add approximately 10000000000bhp...

jk but it always looks better than the base package

alright I knew there was something special, so what you are also telling me is that if I add some racing stickers I will gain horsepower!!!

Another possibility is that a previous owner simply swapped in an M steering wheel.

Yea, you have a car with the m-tech package... basically dresses up the insides a bit more than base. The seats you are talking about are the specific seats found in the M versions. Since your car is a non-m Z, it has the standard seats. I believe that some non-m cars were offered with these as an option, referred to as "sport seats", but it is pretty rare to see.
