The poster only asked for opinions, yes or no?
Shazo prolly gave him an opinion of his own, he didnt bully him or forced him into making a decision. The guys can google it and make a decision i dont know why u guys are making a fuss about. Shazo gave an opinion from his own experience. I own an upholstery factory in UAE and leather, semi leather, bonded leather, pvc leather and rexian is my daily stuff i look at.
Durrani bhai u talk about mercs and bmws. U are right...but be sure that those leathers are not german made as well...u never know some of it might be exported from pakistan.
Secondly, leather getting torn is a matter of how u use it. It can be all screwed up in 2 months if u get the wrong ppl using it. Here in uae it doesnt last more than 8-10 years because of extreme sunlight. It gets hard and gets torn...this can be prolonged using leather treatments n oils.
The point is, a good quality cow leather u can get for 5k paki rupee per square meter...and u wud need about 8-10 for a good sized car.
Its expensive if u go for graining treatment and get it holed in which case it becomes a bit less absorbant to sunlight.
At poster, The same finish can be attained
With indian lowest grade pvc(fake leather) if the stitching guy knows how to stitch right. The finish and looks of all leathers is the same, the feel is different its very different and so is the durabilty althought a good bonded pvc leather is durable too of kept with care.
So poster, it will all come down to ure budget. How deep ure pockets are.
I personally hate fake leathers of all types. Either go full leather genuinely or stick to ure oem seats. And if u can keep them clean...get any oem type fabric available in market. If u got any racing genes and u fancy suede material than thats a good choice too because the fabric has a really good feel to it.
Its all about what u prefer and how much money u can spend.
And it think its a free for all forum...but giving someone an opinion and telling them about something good and rare in pakistan that u have with u for sale is a wise thing because maybe that was exactly what the poster was looking for. And if not. He can always pass the offer. No need to bad mouth like kids here.
PEace out and happy pakwheeling.
And please i mean no no offence to anyone so please dont quote after quote me. Thanks.
