I went with grey leather, here's why:

- grey matches my exterior (steel blue) better (IMHO) and is unavailable in leatherette

- smells great

- breathes better--not quite as hot and sticky in the summer

- breaks in better (although some might say that it shows more wear) and gets more comfortable with age

- will get some of the outlay back upon resale

- I could tell the difference right away. Some folks might not care, but I did.

: I recently test drove a 3 - series and didn't notice much difference between the leather and the leatherette. Does anyone have any thoughts?
