Now those with extended leather really have full bragging rights

It's funny how we all like the smell of toxic chemicals.

Always thought those areas (center armrest, arm rest on the door) was a vinyl type of material.

I'm assuming those areas only get novillo with "full" leather.

I would consider speed cloth if it was available in combination with the extended leather on the dash. The leather on the dash is a must-have IMO, otherwise there is just too much plastic for my taste.

When I get into my E46 in the winter I have to brace myself for the leather freeze.

I like Speed Cloth
a) durability
b) cool in the summer, warm in the winter
c) grip

A nice Alcantara option would have been nice, however, I think some customers scared BMW with complaints when they tried it on the ZHP. I have the fuzzy wheel in my E46 and it never wears; however some people's body chemistry must be a bit different because some wheels look like people chewed on them.
