When is leather not actually leather?
Hi all, when I bought my GT Cloverleaf with "black leather interior" in January there was an annoying little nick in the leather on the drivers seat, classic position, half way up the side support. The damage at that time was about 5mm across. Despite me being very careful to avoid making it worse, it has since grown to about 30mm x 10mm. At this size I can clearly see that it is actually some sort of vinyl/plastic, not leather. Has anyone else come across this? Could it be that some panels are leather but others are not?
I have been looking around for a replacement seat for a few months but without success. I did get a promising response from alfaspareparts.com (through 1stChoice Spares) but after exchanging a number of calls/e-mails, it has now dried up and I haven't heard any more for 10 days. Anyone here know of a late GT Cloverleaf being broken at the moment?
