That interior is a carbon copy of the interior in my 99. I like it. I guess it "wears" on you.

I'd have to agree with the easier cleaning comment. With leather, you can wipe it right off. With cloth, you have to scrub.

I've had both, liked both. Although the cloth in my GA is a bit less fuzzy then that in the Ebay Bonne, I think I like the cloth better only because of the hot/cold issues with leather and the constant fear of ripping/scratching it. Only downside of cloth, besides the lacking the obvious poshness of leather, is the stupid shocks you get all friggin' winter long from the static electricity-I could live without that.

Apparently real leather doesn't really do that

I used to have the same issue with my cloth interior 99. Not anymore! Simply hold the door frame as you exit the car. That way your body remains grounded to the car. Then, when you take your hand off the frame (I usually hold the top of the door as I get out) and reposition your hand to close the door, you won't get shocked! Give it a try.

ok guys im sorry to bust all your bubbles but nothing and i mean NOTHING compares to the seats in my 82 bonneville, crushed velour...god u sat in those seats and u just could fall asleep...but seeing as thats in a car about 23 yrs ago, nowadays i would go with nothing but leather because of looks, and i really dont notice much of a difference in comfortability...

I've always been a cloth only kinda guy because of old school leather. Hard as a rock, cold or hot.

I like the bonne leather in the 95. Comfy and good....

PJ, when you are at the store..pick up a can of anti-static spray. For a couple bucks there'* no door jamb holding needed and no shocks.
