Extended vs Full merino

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Found a nice pre built in dealer inventory with Silverstone Extended, not full Merino. All other equipment on target.

What is primary difference and what are thoughts on extended. Monte Carlo Blue.

My thoughts are that you need to get tire/wheel insurance if you live in B-Ham...

not worth the extra 5,500 in my opinion... back of seats don't need full leather. just something else for the kids in the back to ruin :-) quite like to have it in the front extended cabin though...

If you are single get the Full Leather and enjoy it. If you are married and/or have kids, get the extended.

The wife will ruin the leather by touching it too much with either her hands or her arm/legs from putting too much lotion/makeup on and the kids, well you know they just don't understand.

I once had this chick in my car who was wearing a sundress (ok so she was hot), but had put oil all over her legs (although her legs we're sexy) and arms, and when she got out of my car, my leather seat was covered in her oil and so was the top of the door sill where the full leather is. I was a little pissed, but she made up for it later.

A full explanation in few words, keep the full leather and the chick.

never a truer statement....

hahaha...hot, sweaty and oily girls are allowed to make a little mess on the leather as long as they clean up and make up for it in other ways

Full leather. Otherwise it's no better than a 528 interior.

Thanks good input from all. Ordering with full leather and skipping the dealer model with extended.

My car is on its way and I chose Silverstone extended. I don't really care for the full around the doors. It's just going to get dirty and be a pain to keep clean.
