I will not try to convince people who have seen the speed cloth in reality (or anybody for that purpose), but IMO:
- the speed cloth really looks sporty
- the feel is great (not sliding, not cold in the winter and not too hot in the Summer)
- makes the car a little unique since few will take this standard equipment
- is cheaper
- and will be more resistant over time (at least I hope so but I will admit that this is pure speculation at this point !!
Speed cloth FTW!!!!
