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.
