my 08 ms3 gt with 12000 miles has defective material on the ms3 GT drivers seat. The seat is a combo of leather and "alcantara" a supposedly miracle fabric used on Lamborghini, Maserati, BMW, and others. The fabric on the seat back is blemished as if it had been sandpapered. Has anyone else had this problem on a Speed3 GT?

I'm actually surprised I haven't seen more complaints about it. BMW did the same "alcantara" seating and to top it off, put it on the steering wheel and shifter on the 330 Performance Pkg. BMW issued a TSB about a year later stating that the material fails and it would be replaced by leather. Every 3-series I've seen that still retained the ultra-suede wheel, seats, and shifter looks like total f#@k.

I'd try to get it replaced as abnormal wear (Ford changed my seat cover on my Focus for a similar wear issue).
