Re: Cloth out, LEATHER in
I don't get the whole 'hot in the summer, cold in the winter' bit.
Sure, the initial second you sit down might be a tad uncomfortable if you're not wearing pants, or if you're wearing shorts, but leather conforms to your body temperature within minutes, whether it is a 100+ degree summer day or 0 degree winter day. We have them both, and I don't plan to ever buy cloth seats again.
My wife's car has black leather, and she wears short shorts / skirts in the summer, and she doesn't complain about it a bit, even on the aforementioned 100+ degree days.
If you're wearing shorts / skirts on the cold winter days, you're obviously used to everything being cold and don't care.
My only complaint with leather is the lighter colors. It makes the maintenance a bit tougher. The lightest I'll go now is grey.
