: I'm going to get beige leatherette. And I'm not going to tell anyone that it's really vinyl...I want to see how many "Ohh...nice leather!" compliments I get.
You won't get many. That's because most people will be covering their mouth and nose due to the noxious smell that leatherette emits. You're getting a Bimmer, get leather!! Why would you want to be cheap with a $30K+ car???
