Default Full Leather Velour.....

Misleading description, or simple carelessness on the dealer's part? Makes you wonder how so-called professionals can be so.....um....unprofessional!

Says "full leather" three times in the ad, so there you go.

Many of the traders just post the standard blurb for a particular make-model so it is always best to ring to make sure.. :lol:

That seat does look worn. However it all depends on how its been treated and how the person sits. My dad has big hands and can go through leather wheels on his Rovers in under 30K miles.

This is one reason why you can never trust a car salesman, they sell you something they not even have
