    Re: leather vs cloth

    i like leather its looks mint very comfy however its red hot in summer and unless you have heated seats its freezing in winter but i can deal with that !!! lol

    and its easy to clean so i dont have to worry about the dog marking the seats with dirt

    Leather looks good when its a quality cloth but other than that I'm not a fan.

    It marks too easily and then your left with a permanent mark/scratch which over time makes the leather look cheap and scruffy....
    They are too warm in the summer and freezing in the winter... heated seats make you feal like you've pished your pants plus can aid in making them even more saggy looking...

    I don't see the point of having leather and then covering them so cloth every time... easy enough to shampoo when they get dirty and warm and cool all year round...

    Plus you don't have to worry about whats in your back pocket or zips and so on with cloth... less hassle and cheaper

    will agree with you there on the scratches but my lupo had cloth and i couldnt get it clean no matter how much i shampooed it so ended up with seat covers on all the time

    Re: leather vs cloth

    i have matching blue cloth in the 'lo but my old Rover had a red leather interior which I fitted and were the lushest seats I've ever sat in. Like driving an old school motor -- brilliant!!

    I vote leather. Had a few cars fitted with cow and i just think it makes an interior a better place to be. Yes it gets hot in the sun and yes you can mark it and scratch it but hey it makes a better place to sit.
    It must be the best option as you never a a quality high end car without leather and its a good selling point if you ever get rid.

    I've gone for cloth, but only on the pretence that it isn't the awful grey or beige rubbish you see in Korean cars. Golf is standard interior which cleans up a treat with the requisite spray. The leather and alacantra in the Passat will be much, much harder to keep looking nice

    Leather for me although I see the benifits of both.

    Leather in winter when heated......
