Why do you say Fox Red doesn't wear well? The leather is the same regardless of color as I believe is the dying process, is it simply that it captures dirt, etc.? I would think that beige and silver would be even worse. Just curious because the auto show cars I've seen with Fox Red seemed to be holding up to that tough usage. I just got Fox Red and with my experience dealing with perforated Nasca on my 550i I suspect it's going to be way easier. Of course it helps that no one rides in my car except me and I don't eat in my car.
