Not here, I got cloth.

By the way if you set this forum to display all messages in the last 100 days, then it looks more alive.

I have rare factory leather in my RS. Not dealer installed.
You can;t tell from the picture but "2.5RS" is embossed on the top of the seats, it is perferated leather, the stiching is red like the shifter knob, and the door areas (above the arm rest where there is usually fabric) is perferated leather also. I like it

THAT looks sweet! 2.5's look great with leather. Too bad for me that it would look goofy\be impractical in my wagon.....

I have leather seats from a 2 door in my 4 door, Xephyr has leather seats from a 4 door in his 2 door. He wont trade because mine are older, but the rear seats would be so much nicer if we had the right ones

Yes - the 2 door seats go straight across from one side to the other, the 4 door have lower rear seats that curve around to make it easier to slide your legs in as you get into the back seat.

Rare factory leather? Well, the RS is a rare car...so I guess that makes the leather rare?

yes, the RS is a rare car, but the Factory Leather Option is even more rare.

I have leather. It sucks bigtime in the summer. I have to wear a suit to work and those dress pants plus leather in the summer make for swamp-ass. In the cooler climates it's nice, though.

Imprezinator: Thanks for the clarification. I bought the car second hand, and the woman said she had ordered the car fully loaded with the leather. The only thing she didn't want to wait for was the CF trim.

i don't have leather. i have a sparco evo, and cloth stock seats. isn't leather a pain during the summer and winter? when it's hot, it's really hot, and when it's cold, it's really cold.

Yeah, the leather gets pretty damn hot in the summer. Even if its not that hot out but the sun is really strong, it will get hot. I dont mind too much.

My window sticker says "RS Leather Seats" with a price of $1,295.00. This is on the original window sticker, not a dealer added sticker. I'll take a pic and post it.

Yes.

I don't have an impreza, but I have factory (not dealer) leather, I got a limited OB.

It's leather on the seating surfaces. then vinyl/pleather on the sides/back
RS is probably the same.....

My leather is all deteriorated, but the vinyl looks like new....

What's a good leather conditioner that'll soften it back up?
