    When I test drove the Supra, the interior felt very faux leather and very soft. Sit in a car with real leather and you can feel and smell it the moment you open the door.

    My seats are totally fine with 9,000 miles. It’s red if that makes a difference.

    doesnt base models have the suede seats along the middle? if that gets switched with the premium ones with the full leather ones. would it retain the headed seats? i dont know if the suede seats have a prebuilt heated cushions or the launch edition reds too.. im having double thoughts, because i think i prefer to have the suede center because (for me) i like it better with the design and the red stitching as an accent, and though the black leather and gray stitching is a very clean look, it feels easily tearable and if anything the red seats on the launch edition looks real nice and pops out.

    I've been thinking of getting some seat covers but haven't been able to pull the trigger. I like the leather seats. I just don't like the quick wear these seats have.

    I wanted to get to the bottom (so to speak) of this leather seat issue. A bit of research on the interweb revealed that the wear on the seat at that precise point is directly proportional to the size of the driver’s nutsack.

    This makes sense to me: my seat is pristine after 13800 miles since I have a minuscule sack.

    I had the same question, especially for cleaning and conditioning the leather. I called Toyota to find out what parts in the interior were leather. Took over 30 min to get the answer as they escalated the call and then used some internal messaging system to contact a product expert (maybe someone at BMW?) They finally confirmed that only the seats and the steering wheel are leather.

    That’s kind of disappointing but at least I called it right and have been treating my interior properly.
