    Starting a thread to discuss feedback on the comfort, looks and care of the cloth/textile/black multipattern seats now that there have been a few deliveries scheduled with it.
    From the photos in the design center, it looks like the 'body' of the seats are fabric and the 'head' and sides are some kind of synthetic material.
    Real data and opinions welcome :)

    They look quite nice! Congrats! How do they feel? Can you tell what kind of fabric they're made out of?

    They feel great, quite comfortable. My wife says the fabric feels heftier to her than most fabric in car seats. We aren't sure about the "leather" portions - synthetic or natural, but it feels good to the hand in any case.

    Photos make it look gray. Do they actually appear to be black in person?

    They are more black than grey in person.

    How is the headline, is it the same material in the showrooms on the sample wall a soft fabric?

    Yes, that is what it looks like. It seems like it switches from black to grey depending on the light, but with a greater tendency toward black.

    Watch what you say or I might ask you to drive your X over here to let me check it out in person. But seriously, I really appreciate it because I am trying to decide between textile and black leather this week. Your great pictures have me almost changing to the figured ash as well.

    Your pics look great!! Wish we could have gotten cloth. We need the bioweapon defense mode and the only way to get that is to get the PUP, which means we had to get the leather seats...cascade effect.

    Funnily enough, I have the bioweapon defense mode in my build o_O - it's the probably the only thing in the the PUP that I didn't want.

    @umeshunni Awesome pics. I am guessing (as mentioned by Jim) in person the seats are more black. The Grey color in the photos is just an artifact of the auto exposure seeking a middle ground, right? I have encountered this when taking pictures of black people and on the opposite spectrum snow. Cameras always seek a neutral grey.

    Great photos. I wasn't even aware that this was an option until you made this thread. I assumed it was just the 2 leathers and white synthetic.
