Just drove my wife's van with leather

Well here's somemore on the leather vs. leatherette debate. I've been driving my wife's odyssey lately to haul stuff and my back is sweating considerably more with her leather than when I'm sitting in leatherette. it was obvious.

With that said, the Honda leather is terrible if that makes a difference.

The cows Honda uses are considerably more nervous than the cows BMW uses hence your sweaty back.

Had leatherette in my wife's Z4 and it was just as good as leather... Having said that I always opt for leather...

I wish they gave us proper cloth seat options. I've been forced to go with leather in my last few cars.

However, if I'm gonna get something leather-ish, I figure, I might as well get the real thing.

I would surely have bought red vinyl if they'd offered it. I just wanted the red seats. I actually prefer the vinyl as it's more durable and needs no special products to clean/maintain it.
