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.

Well the 'leather' is actually about 1mm of leather coated in clear vinyl. The 'leatherette' is just died vinyl.

Its not like you are getting un-coated nappa or something like that, but then again that would cost a lot more than $1.5k.

My F30 sport line has sport seats, wheels, black headliner, red stiching, different kidneys, the sport bumper trim, suspension, red key fob, black window trim, black chrome exhaust tips, door sills, and sport+ mode.

At $2500 it's really alot for the money IMO.
I completely agree! My E92 sport package was extremely limited for the money.

For me, Sport Line was a no brainer. I had to have my beloved Coral Red again and if I had to pay 1500 for it I'd rather pay an additional $1k for a plethora of amazing features! Honestly if they weren't bundled together I probably wouldn't order half of the perks that come in the line anyway...

I felt that I got a great bang for the buck with sportline. A step way above my E90, although the 18s are a little thin.
