I optioned the leather B-pillars. I'll probably have my detailer do interior leather ceramic coating on it, but pretty curious if they'll hold up better or worse vs the plastic ones...

The MY22 cars are supposed to have RaceTex B-pillars. Maybe we'll be able to order the individual parts and get them installed in our Pre-MY22 cars. I can't imagine it being dificult.

Yeah it's an upgrade for 1k only after you have all the other premium options including intior in race tex... Not exactly a universal solution

My experience with them is if they don’t have it they have to order it just like any other parts dept.

NTL, my understanding is that Race-Tex is very similar to Alcantara. If that’s the case, do we expect it to stand up to abrasion any better? In fact, maybe we’ll end up sticking to it more.😪

~1500 miles in and a few small scratches on the plastic lower sections. Even if you're careful, like me, it's inevitable to happen especially with others getting in/out of the car. Leather looks incredible just be careful because it can tear.

Track tape seems like a logical and cost-effective solution - waiting to hear from someone here about their experience with it. Can always replace after a few years.

I think you can use interior PPF, like Xpel and wrap it, I believe I am going to try this out after polishing it.
