Cloth out, LEATHER in

I finally got some leather seats for my prelude I have been wanting them ever since I got the car(almost did not buy it cause there was no leather) I got a great deal on them and they look awsome...plus they make the car soooo much easier for me to get in and out of...which is a good thing as I will be dropping it about 1.5 inches shortly

Just thought that I would share...

Leather is too hot in the summer, too cold in the winter. I do like the way it looks, feels and smells in the showroom, however.

Too hot you say...tinted windows my freind...too cold you say...they are HEATED(just as my cloth ones were) and as far as the looks feels and smells part goes... do you know if I can get a ticket for riding around with out any pants on? (yes, I like them that much )

heated seats are so nice. heated cloth you say, never heard of that, was it stock?

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

Yep, stock heated cloth...I had never heard of it either it was great though, really worked well in the winter that is for sure I just find the leather more comforatable for longer trips and it looks a million times better, gotta like it.

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.

Leather is the only way to go. Smooth, comfortable, doesn't stain like cloth. Gets better as the car gets older, unlike cloth.

Re: Cloth out, LEATHER in

I would love to install leather in my Frontier. I found a website that sells leather seat covers.

BTW: Leather is easier to clean koolaid off of them.
