    Default Autobahn package seats

    Well, I am not a leather person. I don't even eat meat. But the seats in the Autobahn are a lot nicer. They look like real sport seats, and I just generally find the Autobahn seats to be a more comfortable than the cloth version. And I much prefer the look of the head rests. Not to mention that the Autobahn interior appears more "grown up"...

    Plus Autobahn has all kinds of nice extras like the kessy, upgraded stereo, navigation... but I am worried that I will regret the leather seating when summer rolls around.

    I used to have a Passat with "leatherette" seats, which scorched my ass during the summer. After that experience, I vowed to buy only cloth. I am "told" that leather breaths better is not nearly as bad as leatherette. Comments?

    IMHO, nothing beats leather. I'm going for the autobahn primarily for that reason.

    I live in south florida and have the leather seats. My windows are tinted and I use a sun shade in the windshield everyday. I've never had hot seats. Leather, get it.

    Go for the Autobahn. The leather not only looks great, but is really comfortable. Just did a 400 mile trip, only needing to stop once for fuel and bathroom. I've had cars where the seats make you want to get up after 2 hours. Not so in these. I'd say tint the windows and put a windshield shade up if you are that worried.

    I didnt want the hassle of the sunroof (never use it, extra weight, another thing to break or leak) or $$ of factory nav (have a $150 Garmin that does fine) so I went with the plaid interior...

    You cant go wrong either way. Personally the Autobahn sticker of $5530 was not worth it.

    I know of several people who have gotten the Katzkin leather upholstery thrown in for $1000 on a new car purchase...talk to your dealer about it. Search for <Katzkin Leather> on this forum, and you can see photos of my car for comparison

    Leather FTW. Very comfy, looks legit, and gets Your olfactory bulb going.

    The katskin seat kits are awesome. I'm going to go thris route once, I'm sick of the interlago pattern.
