TC is great. I think his new AW E92 has one option -- Aluminum trim.
Well, that and a bunch of his suspension goodies.
NO...those are the ZCP alcantara seats. There is a difference (..despite both fabrics "technically" being made of cloth). Look back at my post on page 3; those are the cloth seats in my ZCP. I had the choice to get the alcantara, but I decided against it for two reasons:
  • Durability: I wear BMW ///M gloves as it is just to keep the alcantara on my steering wheel looking new (..and free of mat). Take a look at the friction zones on the alcantara seats pictured above. They start to look faded & worn over time. My cloth seats show no signs of wear.
  • Design: The style aspects of the alcantara seats reminded me of the designs commonly found in passenger planes.

The alcantara does feel nice though (..similar to suede).
