Leather or Cloth?

Ok, I would like to know what people's choices will be for the interior, and more importantly, why?

Right now I have leather (tan) in my Vette, but get a little direct sun on there in the summer time, and the surface quickly becomes my skin, instead of leather. I want cloth, something dark that will not show stains that are bound to happen (I have kids, and it will be my DD).

So, please vote, and also discuss...

I found $80 in my jeans pocket. The kid in me said "buy nerf guns and candy!" But then the adult in me said "buy vodka, nerf guns and candy!"

I currently have black cloth interior. While it does not show stains (I have a three year old who likes to drink her milk/juice in the car), I have this lint issue. The cloth interior is like a magnet for dust and lint, and no shop vac that I have ever owned (nor the guy who details my car owns) can ever get all of it out.

Granted, this will not be my DD (at least until the little one is able to sit in something other than a car seat - I am not athletic enough or flexible enough to deal with a two door car and a car seat ), and if I take it to work, I park underground, but if it is in my driveway, it will be covered, and I am not to worried about those goofy things you put in the windshield to kkep the sun off (if it is not covered). Any one who wants to make fun of the thing in the window can either: A) Get in line to race me or B) Get in line to kiss my a**.

(Unfortunately, they may have to take a number for option B, there are a few people in front of them! )

I like leather.

In my experience it's tougher, has a longer life, easier to clean and doesn't collect smells like cloth seats.

Dirt!

I like leather, both of my cars have it and I enjoy it, so that's what I'll be getting.

Cloth for me. I am tired of burning my but in the summer. I have had two cars with cloth & I loved them.

I know what you mean with cleaning but I will take the power washer to the interior once in awhile. I don't spray the dash directly since I don't want to get water behind the gauges but I hit the door panels & seats then shammy them dry (currently leather) & let it sit in the sun, never had any problems & it looks clean.

Cloth is more comfortable and cheaper. Cloth doesn't burn when it is hot and it allows my back and bottom breath better (less sweating).

I have leather in the mustang, but if the cloth is nice; it may sway me.

Black leather for me. Tint will cure some of the heat issue.

I prefer leather seats. Both have their pros and cons.
