2002 Elise Brochure doesn't mentionDerek said:Are you saying that picture is biscuit? If so I'm not sure I would want it.
Amen. Cloth is, IMO, the only way to go for a performance car.Sownman said:I've alsways though the best colors for a Jag were BRG and biscuit leather interior. Purple and biscuit looks like S***.
The other issue of course being that an Elise is not a Jag. IMO leather is too slippery for a car whose prime attribute is handling. I don't want to be sliding back and forth.
You can always get them recovered.babak said:I noticed a big difference on the amount sliding my seat and lumbars do on leather vs cloth. It'd be great if they offered an upgraded cloth option ala GT cloth of the VW of old which used to have aluminum thread (I think) mixed in with the cloth.
There definitely is a difference, but unfortunately it seems we may be screwed either way as I have heard (I forgot who said it) that the base seats are leather inside, cloth outside... which would have us seated on leather anyway.Tripledigits said:Do you ever see race seats in anything but cloth? I haven't. And it's not because they're cheap. There really is a big difference.
I just went by my dealer to go through the color ordering guide. The base seats have a leather inner section (pretty large area) and a fabric outer perimeter and the whole head section is cloth. The guide shows all colors except the lifestyle and a couple of the other upcharge colors.L8BRAKR said:Have you seen pics of the seats in this configuration? Conventional wisdom would have fabric centers with leather on the high traffic/scuffing areas. If it is how you say I would question, why?
