    Dave, I think that depends slightly on where you get your leather from. I paid over the odds to get high quality leather, went through a lot as some were as you describe, but if you're willing to pay a bit extra you can get leather which is actually far softer to the touch than OEM. Many on here have seen my retrim and I think they'd agree. Can you tell from photos? Well no, not really, but I'll post a couple anyway
