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.

i have extended fox red on jet black...and think it really helps the otherwise dull interior, i also went for titanium trim, cause i like contrast and a bit of color in my cabins.

regarding the wear factor: i wouldnt say that it wears quicker than other leathers - ie tears or wrinkles or saggs...which it does and i am gentle, and have had leatheriques it and have had it properly detailed before.

but it does change colors easier: ie transfer of dyes or something. my driver's seat is noticeably darker than all the others, as i am alone 90% of the time.

so be prepared for that.
i had it professionally detailed and it is practically back to normal now, but just keep in mind , that good leather details will be necessary a few times a year to keep it from darkening...

if all your seats were to darken together i suppose it wouldnt look bad, but in my case, the center of the drivers seat was nearing brown, and the rest fox red.

its a great color, cool on space grey too.
it was my number one criteria after m drive.
