I think that I will stick with the hippo skin and the black as it needs to be hard wearing and hide dirty marks. As I quite often am wearing work trouser which are normally dirty. And as for the rear passengers I don't carry any. I normally have the back folded flat so that I can carry either my gardening equipment or my kite buggying stuff.
I also have sensitive eyes, don't like bright light. So black is perfect for me.
I did look at the individual leather but decided it didn't go with the paint work!
