I have friends who have leather in their cars (non-BMW) that claim their leather wears well too...in other words, they haven't been applying conditioner or anything. But they are in the Bay Area and the weather doesn't get that extreme that.

With my car, the driver's seat is showing a big crack now and one can tell that's not leather. But that is after more than 9 years. I'm tempted to try leather for the next car, but let's see. The passenger seat and back seat don't see much use and those look new even now.
