sure. If you insist. You must know respectful owners of Camrys and 911s. ...
my experience with those who have super expensive sports cars is as follows: they keep the 911, Elises et al in the garage and rag on a Passat/ GTI/ whatever 5 days a week and keep it looking like a mildly lived-in house... Until once a month when they clean that DD up a bit...

Haha I laughed my ass off.

But should definitely have their GTI license revoked. Good thing they got the Autobahn package. WTF.

on the bright side, at least the leather will be easier to clean than interlagos cloth...

I don't feel so bad about a little dirt on the mats and dust on the dash after seeing that.

Why go all out and pay extra for leather seats just to leave food all over? I won't even eat inside my vehicle cause you can get sick that way.

Haha good thinking!

My favorite part is the splattered protein.

Man. My apartment is messy, my work desk is REALLY messy (getting cleaned up tomorrow though, just too many product samples and nowhere to put 'em...), but the interior of my car is nearly spotless. It needs a vacuum (by my standards), but there's not a single piece of trash in there - period. At worst, there's a used (interior) microfiber or two lying around

That just makes me sad. At least he has leather so there's less of a chance of truly permanent staining...

lol 2nd. If there's one thing that's consistently clean in my life, it's the inside of my car.

I think they're leatherette. They just don't feel like the real leather on the seating surfaces, at least in my car. This is how VW cuts costs on cars in this price point; pretty sure everything is leatherette and only the parts of the seats that actually come in contact with the passenger are real leather. So the armrests including those on the doors are fake leather. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

I think you are right, the leather on the door is defiantly fake. But the leather on the steering wheel, shift knob on the DSG, and handbrake is real.
