True, but I think another solution would be carbon leather seats (or at least center sections), and then you would not have the "cheap factor".

Seriously though, I do see your point. In fact people have brought that up in other threads. I am leaning toward the cloth seats myself. But now that I think about it, I would be curious to see what carbon leather seats/seating-surfaces would look like, heh.
