    Anyone in the Raleigh area have a suggestion on the best way to see and feel the textile seats? The Raleigh SC says they rarely have it in their demo cars. Thanks.

    We have them and I find them more comfortable than the standard leather seats. They are perfect down here in south florida and seem pretty impervious to damage from the children.

    I have them in my car. We could find a time for you to check them out. PM me if interested.

    I find fabric to grab my pants and constrict the boys too much. So I go with leather. Maintenance is a breeze.

    We love our textile and wife has never liked anything other than leather in past. We checked both and this was our assessment:

    -textile heats up quicker (Tesla's heated leather not as strong as in our leather Honda or BMW)
    -thought the standard leather looked too smooth/almost fake - but we're used to BMW's textured leather
    -liked the various textures that make up seat/coordinated well w/ premium interior
    -cost and vegan were not factors at all

    Hope that helps some

    What about clean-up with textile? My three kids regularly spill juice and mash hard boiled eggs into the seats
