I did not like the look of the perforated leather the first time I saaaw it. My dealer was using a local trim shop to install Classic Soft Trim leather to the ex that were not selling because everyone around here sending 28-32,000 for a vehicle wanted leather seats. He had to order some without , so he had the leather changed as soon as they came on the lot. I liked the smooth so much bettter and they have a bit of extra padding that it made the seats even more plush. I am glad I got the after market leather and got it in two tone colors and got the third seat done too for about what the diff would have been for factory leather.MG Pilot said:I agree that leather, in general, cleans up better.

Yes, my wife and I are with you on this one. Even with the heated seats, it still takes a while before they warm up. And what about the middle rows where the children sit? I didn't like the idea of my girls freezing their tushes off.Ziploc said:I definitely wanted, and got, cloth, because I hate to sit on COLD LEATHER on a wintry day...and find cloth is also gentler when the interior is hot.
Yeah, I agree also. While the leather is easier to clean up and might repell certain stains, once something sets in, it's in there for good. Whereas the cloth seats can be shampooed or sprayed with.I was also concerned about stains--greasy, or something like (God forbid) cranberry juice--getting on leather. My leather furniture has been marked forever by a couple of penetrating stains that have stayed put, and I was afraid the same thing might happen with leather seats. On the other hand, I've had pretty good results getting out stains from cloth seats in the past. Plus, I think cloth, depending on the color, tends to disguise most problems better.
LOL. That reminds me of my bachelor days. I filled up 2 of those big garbage bins with all the fastfood trash one day. Gave a few folks to chuckle about while filling up their cars.(P.S. I'm not really a big slob, but reality dictates that snacking/eating/drinking will take place in the car.)
