Only 20% Of BRZs Have Cloth Seats?

https://www.autoblog.com/2019/05/21/...smission-take/

I heard a rumor that only 20% of BRZ came with cloth seats, the rest were leather with alcantara inserts.

I'm wondering if its the 'cloth seat' cars that suffer the most from seat heaters blowing fuses... wet farts shorting the electrical elements...

cloth seats are a fart sponge. Given the option who wouldn't spring for the leather. You already are springing more for the BRZ over the 86/FRS might as well double down on the leather.

I love the cloth seats, they're impressive at holding air freshener odor. I'm done owning cars that smell like melting crayons (E36 BMW) noneya have taste

I didn't even know cloth was an option. I have never seen a twin without alcantara.

as far as i know, the cloth seats are in the premium model, and can't be had with heated seats.

i would have preferred to have cloth seats. but i required seat heaters.

I can't help you -

My 2013 FR-S has cloth seats and doesn't have a seat heater.

I found leather (real leather) car seats were cold in the winter and hot in the summer -

The question was - how do you heat up your cloth seats without a seat heater? What are some strategies?! I say sitting on your jacket is the best I agree though, leather isn't great in a climate that has both extremes. You wouldn't want steel or aluminum seats after all, so why is leather any better?! And it smells like crayons
