: 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.

: : These are my sole opinions and please do not flame away.

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.
