As far as overboosted steering goes, this would not be a function of the
steering wheel.  I have the sport wheel and think it is excellent.  I
haven't driven an A4 without one, though.  Well worth the added expense, IMO.

We looked at Pearl cars with anthrcite leather and leatherette.  Even though
it's free, I could see getting a vinyl interior in a $30,000
performance/luxury car.  IMO, it's trying to look like something it isn't.
If you don't want to get leather (slippery, hotter and colder than cloth),
get the cloth.  Of course, in the end, it comes down to what YOU like
(that's why they offer three andsell plenty of each one).
