I absolutely loved my Alcantara & wouldn't hesitated getting it again.
In fact my plan would be to get the 'ette on the 1er & get them redone.
Can't agree with you more about the Alcantara, hand it in my STi and it was great.

I think the only advantage to me about having cloth over leather is that cloth grips better.... But like most things, everyone has a different preference
