Just to confirm, is this Alcantara seat inserts or are you considering the full Nappa leather seating? As for the Alcantara, I had the silver on my older S4 and while I liked it at first, I got a bit tired of it. I know this is definitely a personal preference type of thing but on my new S4 I opted for the full Nappa in black and glad I did. Sure it may be a bit sterile for some, but personally I like it better as it stays cooler in the summer. Ironically I found the cloth got hotter which is the opposite of what I expected. Fortunately I was able to confirm this when test driving both types on a hot day. The cloth is a lot harder to keep clean as well, particularly silver. To each his own, you can't go wrong with either one.
