    I finally made it to my Indy shop to check out their B6s, the wagaon was gone so that left a '06 2.0T blue sedan w/ light grey seats. How can you tell if it's leather vs. leatherette? The seats were heated & had a lot of small holes in the surface, how does that hold up over time? Brian

    I found some cheap seats. The guy advertised them as leather, and I asked him whether he was sure it wasn't leatherette and he replied "I think they're leather" (he's from a big warehouse of parts so he has no idea).
