Leather is easier to keep clean than fabric but must me maintained by means of moisturizing it but as said it's ultimately down to you and I would also get the sony headunit


Sony headunit isn't an option unfortunately, but doesn't bother me all that much, the stock one is less confusing :)

It's not that far away, but I know what you mean, I thought waiting a week before picking my car up was long enough, that week went so slow!

I'f you have the tinted windows like I do the car does stay alot cooler, with our golf 5 we had leather seats, yes they can burn our skin when its 40+ and the car is left in the sun, but it was worth it, just made the car feel more upmarket, then again I don't know how the quality is in the Fiesta, to be honest I have never seen one with leather in it, must be because of the cost.

So my opinion, if money's no problem go ahead, but if it is, I'd rather save my money.

Really? Black windows make it cooler? I wondered why Mercedes have then funky blue ones, I'll let them know they've got it wrong.

It's only my second car, and as much as I'd like to go for a proper hot hatch eventually, it's better to go for the ZS and work up as I think I'd end up in a ditch somewhere!

I went for cloth in the end, I've never really been in a car with leather seats, and I was concerned about spending £800 on trim that I might end up hating! Also, £800! I can save that money and go for a remap ;) much more worthwhile!

Yes, you wouldn't think so sins black absorbs heat, but it actually works, and it does have a bit of a reflective property to it, basically a black mirror. judging from your comment I guess you haven't heard of a company called Llumar, we offten do this to cars in SA, Mercs included, its not just a sun screen in my case, I Have the smash and grab film on it, which as the name suggests help the glass not to shatter in case someone tries to brake in at an intersection, which does happen.
