Thanks.
The leatherette that I had i had in my e46 looked like leather and looked like new when I sold it at 50k miles. Every car that I have had with leather has shown creases and looked warn after 50k miles or less. I know that leather is supposed to be higher end but it's my car and I go by what I like. When I sold my e46 the guy was amazed at how nice the seats looked and I had him preferring the leatherette. You need to decide for yourself.
