	'00.  i ordered the car with every available option except
the CD changer.  leather wasn't available, and i picked cloth over
the fake stuff as the fake stuff just screams cheap to me.  perhaps
cloth is better, given your examples.  i'd have to see how much i
slide around in A4 leather sport seats as i'm hooking up in turns
and stuff like i do in my car.

	i wouldn't have picked electric seats either, had they been
available.  too much weight!
