Actually all the Esprits we have had contact with are done in leather originally. Two '89s and a '90. Also the S4 we sold was done in leather.Randy,
I had my sunroof recovered in a suede-like headliner and was plannning on doing the rest of the upper trim panels in the same manner.
Then, I saw a 91 SE and its piece were factory covered in leather (not the sunroof though)....and I realized that leather is the way to go. I guess that was an option on some Esprits. It's seems that most have the upper trim pieces and rear window frame down in the light gray headliner fabric, but a few were done in leather. the leather looks more "lotus like."
