I don’t know if your ‘12 was “used enough” when you owned it, but I hated my leather seat bottoms in my ‘11. They had zero cushion nor support. Felt like I was sitting directly on metal springs.

They were fine for me, as far as i remember. Maybe i was to busy loathing the MT-82

So glad I'm not the only one (seems to be not so much the trans as the pos clutch that won't release at the factory 7k red line :rolleyes:)
Oh no. Plus, I had a couple times where the clutch would re-adjust itself in the middle of a gear rowing session. It really was the reason I sold the car. Plus, the market on them was falling, so Im glad I got out when I did. I think I got $18k for it.

Don’t try driving a car off the factory floor like it’s a purpose built race car (unless you bought a Cobra Jet), and y’all woulda been fine... I never had a single problem with my MT-82 or clutch. I beat on the car too, just didn’t powershift like I was on the drag strip. My butt though, wasn’t a huge fan of the seats. Maybe yours aren’t as picky.

Are you talking about picky butts?

I was never a fan of those stripes either. I liked the look of the perforated leather with white stitching that my car had. Just didn’t like how they felt.

Hahaha truth. I just know because my buddy had those seats in his ‘11 and the stripes were white.
This guy tells the truth. My 12 has those same seats. Not a fan of the stripes either, but the bun warmers....well, those are pretty nice
