It comes standard with plastic seats. You can upgrade to ... "Dakota leather." That is the least luxurious leather you can find in a car. To see higher luxury, go sit in say an Audi A8 or an S class (I am sure the 7 is similar) .
well, yeah, compared to a 7, A8 I'm sure it is a little less luxurious lol, but i still consider it a luxury sedan, just lower end then compared to those(and the price obv. reflects that). I can't compare to the older 3-series, this is the first I've owned. I like the Dakota leather, while not Nappa or Merino, I still find it fits a luxurious mold for my tastes. The leather I'm coming from was in Subaru, which felt much less luxurious then the Dakota.

I sat in a 7, and an A8 at the Philly auto show, so i know what you mean by a more luxurious feel. However if given a choice, and price was the same, I would choose a 3-series or an S4/S5 over a 7, A8. They're just way too large and I'm way too young to want one of those.
