    even though i swore i wouldn't be spending any more money on my car i'm now looking to change the interior.

    got the light grey cloth interior at the moment.

    i'm considering these 3 interiors:

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/BMW-E46-Compac...item56356c49a4

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/BMW-E46-Compac...item5884450289

    what you guys think would go best?? the 2 full leather sets are within driving distance to pick up.. not that it matters as the half leather interior is cheaper even including postage.

    Hmm, it's between the blue half-leather and the full black leather.

    Do you want to be sitting in leather, or just want improved looks with a leather trim? That's the question.

    I'm be in two minds as I love the blue of the half leather, but I think full black will look almost as good as be more luxurious.

    Top leather ones r ghey IMO, not a fan of light leather at all.

    I have the same seats as the blue ones but in black leather (could have had full leather seats, but always preferd halfs) and love them. You get a better look than cloth and look sportier look than full leather. While also not being freezing cold in winter, and boiling hot in summer (that one day of heat we get lol).

    1/2 leather is better IMO.

    i'm leaning towards the half leather blue interior too be honest! i think the blue armrest would look good aswell!

    i've been watching it on ebay for about 2 months and i know quarry are having problems shifting it but they still won't budge on there price! thats why ive started looking at alternatives.. decisions decisions lol

    Got to be the full black leather mate!!!

    I'm not against half leather in fact i like it, just don't think bright blue is the right colour for leather seats!!

    Have to agree with the others that chose the Half Blue Leather. Suits the car down to the ground.

    Full leather is a pain in the backside in the summer! Far too warm, not that we get much warmth in the summer.
