leather...and for those cold days (of which there are few) there will be seat warmers! Oh...and those seat warmers sure help with the stress in the back

Getting a 1SS so going with cloth. My 2000 has cloth and with some scotchguard I've never had any type of stains including water. The cloth on the 5th Gen looks much tougher than the 4th Gen. I haven't decided on what color though. I've seen leather and all the owners say its hard to maintain which leads to cracking and tearing. No thanks, staying with cloth.

I'll be rocking the cloth in my 1SS. It just makes no sense for me to pay for unnecessary options a couple of years out of college.

Cloth. Like it and drive it everday. Feels softer and more comfortable to me. Harder to keep clean and will stain.

Leather. Looks more classy. Easy to clean. New GM leather is thicker and stronger than in years past, so it will last longer. Look at how long leather lasts on all those cows standing in the pasture out in the sun, rain, mud etc. They look pretty comfortable in it too!

My 2cents.

2SS/RS ordered.

Yeah, leather all the way, and the heater will provide a bit of back therapy if needed.

I don't have a preference. But since I want the options on the uplevel trim, it's forced me into Leather, so that's what I'll get.

Yes, and this isn't my kid-transportation car. In other words, this isn't the car that I'm using to take the kids tot he grocery store, this is for cruising and maybe an occasional errand that will require no snacks in the car with them.

Anyways 50%-70% (this is a guess, don't get mad at me GM) of the material isn't leather, just the small square you sit on and the small strip up your back. All the sides and rest of it are that fake leather material.
This has been announced to be true. However, it isn't a huge deal...I'll be sitting on real leather, don't care about the rest of the seat.
