i have leather in my current car, 1989 acura legend coupe, and the leather has aged terribly. of course, there are different grades of leather, but inevitably, all leather wears and disintegrates.
leatherette has greater longevity and costs $1400 less. the feel is nearly indistinguishable. sounds like an easy decision for me, unless you are preoccupied by "image."
: Leather or Leatherette? Is it worth it? Letherette feels pretty good.
