excellent post. ya gotta be a m0r0n not to be able to tell the diff between leather & leatherette.I can't believe this thread is back. Why is it so hard for people to tell between leather and letherette.
It is obviuos is day when you look at it. Looks different, feels different, heck even smells different.
You can tell all of your friends you have a leather interior. High class sh!t, yo.I'm puzzled. It seems to take an expert to tell when the seats are not leather, leatherette seems to last longer, and leather costs more. What's the advantage to having leather?
Absolutely nothing in the E46... worst fvcking leather ever. The stuff in the Ms is better, as is the stuff in later models (E90, E60, F10, etc)I'm puzzled. It seems to take an expert to tell when the seats are not leather, leatherette seems to last longer, and leather costs more. What's the advantage to having leather?
Real Leather Sport Coupe SeatFirst and foremost, PREMIUM Pkg does NOT promise leather. SPORTS pkg does NOT promise leather.
YES, you can tell by looking at it!
First, Take the basic front seat. There is a fold in the LEATHER. leatherette does not have this fold. Please examine the difference between the two photos. The first one has leather, the second does not.
On a sport seat it is difficult to tell. The below picture does have leather. If looking to see if a car with sports pkg has leather, it is important that you look at the rear seats as it is much easier to tell on the back seat.
