If anyone is having problems with their Z4's leather starting to wear unusually fast. Take note of it and please post here. In several other boards, they are reporting the fast wear problems. The problem may lie with the company that made the leather specifically for the Z4 this year and last. Company is "Lear".

Im posting this in the hopes that one of these days BMWNA will take notice and possibly fix this possible leather quality problem.

Just gave me Z4 a thorough interior cleaning and inspected the leather closely and didn't see any wear at all. Maybe they had a short run with some poor quality leather that made it through quality control?

I notice when someone has a problem they post it in 4 different forums so afater wahile the problem looks four times bigger than it really is... just an observation.
