I've got a leather jacket I've owned for over ten years and it looks brand new. I do everything in it. Would a 'leatherette' (vinyl) jacket last like this? Consumer reports did an analysis of vinyl vs. cloth vs. leather years ago and cloth lasted much longer than vinyl but leather lasted much much longer than both. Am I missing something? Does BMW use 'cheap' leather - if there is such a thing?

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