The leather has no wear. As you can see from the picture there are 2 indents. One worse than the other. This should not be there on a new car. The leather has not been properly or evenly stretched or stitched on either side of the central seam. Thought the picture would make this pretty obvious. Look also at the other pictures posted on the thread by other UK F30 drivers for further clarification.

To summarise:

The problem is that they have not stretched the leather equally on both sides of the central seam or there is a generic fault in this particular bit of the hide. Plus, the foam beneath might also not have the same packing effect on either side of the central seam. Either, any or both ways, it's faulty.
