No the reason most don't like leather, is because it scoffs easily, extremely cold in the winter and cracks over time, and in the summer can get so hot in the sun you could fry an egg on it....

That's the reason I don't like leather.

I love my leather, but JSD is right, its cookin just about everytime i get in there, maybe my fault for buying black leather in Texas and any skin that touches it will inevitably stick. None the less i wouldnt trade it for the world.

I like leather.. mostly.
except for the sweat factor...
and if the leather is black. Not too into baking my butt every time i get in
Leather, is nice to have though. It doesnt stain easily..and its easy to clean.

I have leather interior in my ford explorer, which is awesome for offroading because if mud gets on the seat.. i wait for it to dry and it flakes right off without a problem

as a detailer, i love leather.
even the dirtyest stained, and generaly grubby leather, with a little degreaser, and a scrub will clean up to a brand new condition, where most fabrics, if stained badly enough, will almost always leave a slight stain visible.

Tips for cleaning leather.
[ul][*] Degreaser, diluted to 1:1, spray full coverage to leather.[*] rub with scotch pad, all the dirt will come out.[*] chamois dry.[*] tyre shine to taste, wipe excess.

thanks for the info, im sure it will prove useful at some point.
im not digging my leather right now, only because its snowing probably the one time for this year in Dallas, and the seats are freking freezing, wish i had remote start for the car that way when i got in the heater would be on and the seats would be toasty. not really worth it for a once a year occurance

It may be worth it anyway Joelzy. if you know its gonna be hot you can always set the ac and have everything cool.

I don't mind leather interiors. Its not something that I love or hate. It makes no difference to me.

Default RE: leather

true, but ive always heard that its hard to work that into a standard transmission, being as you must have the clutch in to start, or i suppose leave it out of gear, but then you have to really rely on your ebrake,
any knowledge on this?
