I wish I could have gotten all leather on my SEL Premium, as I was able to get on my 2004.5 GLX top of the line car.
Why does the engine you buy dictate what seats you get if you get the top of the line on the car you pick out of the 3 engines? Makes no sense
I am also concerned on how hard it will be to keep these seats clean since its 2 materials and you have to clean the leather part one way and the dynamica another way.
Also dont like that the Dynamica attracts lint and I didnt want the darker interior but got stuck with it since its impossible to find the Moonrock grey anywhere without special ordering and wating for months!

sadly I dont think the after mod for the 2012s will be only $1000 to do it after the fact compared to the 2013 which has it built in.
Sad to know the top of the line Passats dont even offer this as an option esp with all the other top safety options it offers. Seriously sad esp since the RNS 510 has all the capabilities to make use of it so its not like its a big deal to offer it as an option. Just makes no sense.
And definitely hurts them when customers compare with the other cars that do offer it Std or as an option.
But from what i can tell about the matting of the dynamica section on the driver seat compared to the passenger seat of the dealer demo car (read as more used), its going to look like old carpet would with daily use.
Its not about wear from stretching, but rather that section aging faster and soiling faster thn the rest of the seat.

At the time of my purchase, I didn't care about the actual seating surface, more so that I wanted the sport seats because the standard ones are too flat. So far, I don't mind having the leather/dynamica combination. And I have the tan interior too... might get stained over time if I don't keep it clean, but I should be trying to do that anyway.
