..because not everybody cares about full leather, and because not everybody wants to deal with the maintenance, cracking, etc. The cloth center portions stay cooler in the summer (..warmer in the winter) as well.

Yes my '05 Comp.Pkg ///M3 has cloth/leather interior. Conversely, my '03 ///M3 had Imola Red leather. When my "then girlfriend" would get into my car, I'd always worry about her various belts, pant rivets, etc. scratching my seat bolsters/seating surfaces (..which they did). There are other reasons why I prefer the cloth/leather (..or aptly named Speed Cloth) to full leather interiors, but everybody has an opinion/perspective.
