    Skip to 0:45 for the good stuff



    I wish I was into racing back in the mid 90's.
    That era DTM is probably my favorite. I would have loved to have watched it
    But in 1995 I was only 7, so I was probably just playing with Hot Wheels lol.

    I have a question for the brain trust. Where is everyone with leather seats? I'm considering for my next purchase.
    Theyre heated which doesn't bother me as I like them heated, just getting a lot of Mrs Wiv input about summer heat and 'sticking' to them due to the leather. What say you, swerve or give it a go?

    They don't get sticky, but you might feel uncomfortable by sweating on them if the day is extremely hot and no A/C on the car etc.

    I've had several cars with leather seats in hot climate and the leather definitely absorbs more heat than fabric seats after the car has been sitting in the sun. Once driving the AC should cool down the car interior but I find if I wear shorts instead of trousers during the hottest part of the year, then where my skin touches the leather then can sweat a bit. Many cars have perforated seats with cooling which can make a nice difference, even my wife's KIA SUV has cooled / heated seats.
    I'd still buy a car with leather seats though because in many cars they look much better than fabric seats.

    From a motorcycle exhibit in Solvang, CA. It’s a great spot if you find yourself in the area.

    Yerp. Mrs Wiv will keep her company car, so that will be the one we shall flog as a daily. Mine goes back, so need to buy something sensible, slightly larger...
