I'm only gonna assume that leather will be an option. Are you guys gonna pick it up with the leather option or stick with cloth?

I've never had a car with leather so don't really know what to expect or know what is a good or bad leather in a car. One of my friends has leather in his Grand Prix and swears he will never buy leather again because he has so many rips and tears in it.

Cloth.

I don't like how leather feels come summer. Plus I'm not sure I could afford a higher optioned leather trim.

Another vote for cloth.

Ever leave your car in a parking lot on a hot 100+ F day for a few hours then sit down on the leather, not a fun time!

1st one for leather please. Makes the car feel that much more luxurious and like I'm truly getting what I paid for.

Gonna choose leather as long as the cost is not very high because I've never had a car with leather before :grin:

I recommend you test drive a car with cloth and leather before you purchase or go in biased about leather. If you live in a hot climate in the summer wait till the middle of the day and go test drive one of the cars that is out in the lot, should give you a good feeling of what to expect with leather interior.

It depends on the options level. If the model level I want comes with leather as an included option then I will get it. Doesn't overly matter either way to me.

Don't think so ArchRival though it would be nice if it did. It is a great option to have with leather seats on those cold mornings :D

I hope that the CR-Z seats use the same mesh like materials used on the Insight, with just a bit more bolster. Super durable, light weight and sporty looking. Plus their easy to remove and wash in your washing machine. I hope that the CR-Z doesn't become some overweight want-a-be racer. Keep it simple Honda.

Leather! If you take good care of it with cleaner/conditioner it stays nice for a long time.

I have to credit modern-day cloth seats though. Manufacturers are starting to use some really nice materials. If I didn't enjoy or have time to detail my car I would definitely choose cloth.

I used to use Meguiar's Gold Class since they make good wax and polish products, but I switched to Lexol products about a year ago and will be sticking with them forever as far as I can tell. The cleaner and conditioner are seperately applied, and the conditioner has a really natural almost leathery smell. Much better than a lot of products that leave your interior smelling ike chemicals or fruit, not to mention you can really tell it nourishes the seats. I am probably more picky than most because I have seen a lot of S2000's with worn bolsters after just a few years, and I don't want mine to look like that.
