2 kids went to college with it, myself and my sister and 2 sets of grandchildren with countless child seats
depends on how you take care of the car I guess
that's definitely one side of the equation.

However, as I said, I had no problems with my E90 or E39 leather seats. Lasted for quite some time. my E46 seats were a different story - just poor quality leather and started wearing within a few years. Same care regimen.
