Default hmm.... cloth interior or leather?

looking at buying a G8 tomorrow..

only thing holding me up is the cloth interior, no sunroof, no heated seats...

it would become my daily/toy, and i can live without the options. I actually like the cloth seats better then leather personally. They are more comfortable and you don't have to deal with the extreme hot or coldness...

but i am more concerned about re-sale.. i don't think ill keep the car for more then 18 months.

any opinions? does it dramatically hurt the resale?

I don't think i'd buy a car with cloth interior. leather just looks so much nicer, and it's easier to clean with simple leather cleaner and wiping.

and thats a big worry... i feel like 90% of the people looking for this car will be looking for leather.

I made the mistake of buying an audi once with cloth because it was what i wanted... was a bitch to sell..


I guess i am just hoping that the g8 is like the m3 by some miracle, and that the cloth may be something that is rare and sought after by some- and not hurting value

If you aren't gonna have it long, why not lease it? Then resale won't matter.

the goal is to not lose money on it...

My typical track record is buy for a deal, sell in 12-18mo and break even.

not to mention, when you lease a car (in most cases) your putting a couple grand down, spending 300+ a month... a 36mo lease would be like 12,800 gone.

id rather spend 15 now and sell for 15 later...

but i am just looking to see what the general consensus is on leather vs cloth and if it would prevent someone from buying it.

Leather sucks. Cold in the winter and hot in the summer.

Leather. I would not buy a G8 without leather. Cloth is ok for my winter beater though.

I've had both and if I had to pick I would go with cloth. Leather to me is only for looks.

I agree.

Although I like whatever my 300c had in the centers of the seats.

I prefer cloth to leather. Not a big fan of leather.
