    I know it is a little hotter and may not wear quite as well as the standard leather, but it does help with lateral support under cornering.
    It is, indeed the wear factor. My 20 year old M3 (which is being replaced by the GT4) has nappa leather which still looks new. My wife's ZHP alcantara isn/t doing so well. Lightweight buckets will provide plenty of lateral support.

    I believe it will be a federal requirement on 2017 cars. Not the reason I'm pushing my allocation back, but it would be nice.

    If I had an e36 M3 in decent shape I'd be inclined to keep it. Then maybe add an e30 and and e46 to have the perfect M3 collection. Wait...I only have a two-car garage. Never mind lol.

    CLOSE RATIO GEARBOX!!!

    Folding mirrors with puddle lights would be nice. Bose speakers

    I think the easier thing to do would just be to offer the GT4 bumpers with side scoop delete option and 3.8l engine as Cayman S options.

    If I could get a GT4 with 19" wheels, a more aggressive retractable wing, fuzzy interior delete with the full compliment of interior colors normally offered I would be a happy man.

    PDK was my big one.

    I did wonder where seat cooling was, but with Alcantara seats I think I could manage without it.

    Rear wiper does seem to be missing though.

    I know it is a little hotter and may not wear quite as well as the standard leather, but it does help with lateral support under cornering. I've driven identical cars back-to-back on the track and could feel the how the alcontara helps you stick to the seat. I think having alcontara and seat cooling would be a good combination on a track car.
    Besides the reasons you have mentioned (leather wears infinately better); alcantara is a DIRT MAGNET.It sucks up any and all dirt grease and grime and it is impossible to keep clean.

    It's in great shape, less than 4k miles a year. But it ain't no GT4. Will still have the wife's low miles ZHP E46 (which is eerily similar to the e36 M3) and a 2002 tii, so we'll still be able to scratch that bmw itch.

    Sadly threads like these is what gives PCNA really bad ideas, like adding a sunroof to every 997.1GT3 that was sold in the US.

    The GT4 is not a boulevard cruiser that needs 100's of useless exclusive options.
