: Unfortunately, it doesn't feel like leather, nor does it smell like leather. I don't know why BMW doesn't offer fabric upholstery. Seems to me it would be more attractive and comfortable than leatherette.
: : I sat in a tan/sand leatherett and I thought it looks really fake and cheap. The black on the other hand, is very hard to tell from the real leather.

Since cloth is available in countries other than the US, I think it is a BMWUSA marketing choice to not offer it in the US. They make more money from leather, so they do all they can to force people to buy it.
