Guys, most of what we have is speculation. We are in the void before the unveil and most of us are impatient and willing to speculate. Some speculation makes sense while other speculation seems quite counter intuitive. The debate in these forums is mostly around that. Does Trevor know for sure what he shared? Nope. I consider it a reasonable suggestion and personally believe it to be likely. Now, for me personally, my last 2 vehicles have had black leather and I live in Southern California where our summers have plenty of days over 90, but not much humidity. Black leather gets hot in the summer like most of my car. I don't think black leather should be a significant deterrent for most, but to each their own. While I understand black absorbs heat as a color, I don't think even scientific data showing me the average temperature and cool down period of various colors would change my experience based opinion that it's OK. The inside of a car gets hot. Any seat, thus, will get hot. Put up a sunshade. Hopefully the M3 has a strong AC and can cool down the interior fairly quickly. If you live in crazy climates, you might very well have a different scenario than me! I do expect to have a new option for cooling my M3 that I have never had before.... Remote cool down.
