M3 and your jeans :)

I have a really silly question - does your M3 affect your wardrobe?
No kidding, I like True Religion jeans, but because of their big
metal buttons on the back pockets and the soft leather M3 seats,
it seems like I can't really wear them...
What's your experience with the seats in the long run?

You can wear depends on top of your jeans to protect the seat and provide more cushioning!!!!

Diesel jeans are the only jeans to own. True Religions = BLECH. Those big ugly buttons on the pockets? BLECH

I like diesel too, but since they are moving from bootcut to this ->
kind of hard to like them




So how about those seats guys, any update after a couple of years of use?

i guess i'm a different breed, but i buy cars to drive them, not worry about wearing the seats out...

i'd rather get some upholstery work done eventually than be on constant alert as to whether my pants are going to be too abrasive...

Folks, just get in and out of the car the 'right way', meaning levering yourself with your right leg and left arm on the door sill so you never rub the seat, and your seats will always look like new regardless what you wear . And yes, condition the leather too .

True religion are definitely the worst to wear. Just try to get in and out carefully. 90 % of time I wear dress paints because of work so I am ok. The problem is wife and her jeans.

First, this is probably the gayest thread ever.

Second, I wear Diesels.

Get a grip guys, I track the car 12-15 times a year. I'm happy just not to have brown stains in the seats
