: anyone have black leatherette in their E46? What are your impressions? I am curious to the feedback.
Notwithstanding all of those who say they can readily tell the difference between leather and leatherette and that the leatherette looks ugly or cheap or plastic or whatever, I chose leatherette after failing to tell the difference between the sand leather and the sand leatherette (it faked out the salesman as well). Mine's black leather (sport package) and so far (it's only been 11 days) I'm pleased with the leatherette. Also, so far everyone who's looked or been in my car guessed it was leather. Only the sniff test gave it away. You need to check it out personally.
