[A4] cloth interior?

Why the American facination with leather?  Lots of high dollar and high performance cars in Europe 
come with cloth.

Check most European spec E34 BMW M5s and you'll see.  Cloth interior isn't about cheapness.
In fact, I almost wish our A4 had cloth so I could have the sport seats.  

Given the real choice though, I'd take leatherette in the A4.  Ours still looks as new as the day 
it left the factory.  Can't say the same about leather.

My opinion is that the pleather you speak of, will wear better over the years on the bolster than 
leather in the same spot.

Nothing says nasty like worn leather in a car.
