'11 cloth or leather?

So I'm about to pre-order. Still undecided on the sahara or sport, I had thought I'd come to the 'sport' conclusion and then I saw the Blake cloth interior. It's hideous, it has like grey crack in it something. What's the other color option for interior on the '11 sport? Is this it?

I wish you can get all black leather. I don't care for the two tone leather personally.

I think that might be it for the Sport trim. You know, you could consider getting them done aftermarket. That's what I did with my Eclipse, I had leather for the seats custom made to my specs and shipped to me, and then I brought the car in to a local upholstery shop to have the seats stripped and re-covered.

Nice thing about that is that its fully custom and unique.

Here's what I did in the Eclipse. Probably would do it differently now, but I did it almost 10 years ago.



It's full leather too, not "Leather-Trimmed" like what's offered in the Sahara package (and most other factory leather options out there).

Yeah, I agree the sport seat pics that I've seen do look terrible, but Ray said, seat covers are relatively cheap when compared to the upgrade to leather.

Why wouldn't they just do simple black cloth or leather as an option? duuuuuhhhhh

the cloth for '11 looks very 80's, liike bust the Member's Only jacket back out of the closet.

The saddle tan is ok, but a little light in color for my taste

Glad I'm not the only one that thinks that cloth looks horrible. And really, just one option? Why not a tan cloth?

hmmm... "hideous" - do you really think it's that bad?... I actually kind of like it on my new Sport.. not sure if they're offering anything different in cloth.

Ya I persoanlly think it's pretty bad. Like someoe above said, looks very 80's. Bad enough to make me change my mind AGAIN and go with the sahara. Just my personal opinion though. How are you liking your '11. I'd love to see pics

I don't remember how it broke down, but I think it was about $900 total for leather and install. Can't remember if it was extra for the logo and whatnot. Company was Katzkin.

I'm with you. I like the black cloth in my 2011 Sport far more than the cheap looking gray or tan cloth in the 2010 and earlier models. My dealer also had a 2011 Sahara with a black and saddle cloth combo that - now was hideous.
