    I ordered the alcantara seats with my 1.5 FR. Do you have a photo of the dash you can post?

    I wonder if this will also be the same for Xcellence.

    Dash certainly isn’t leather in the Xcellence

    Are you referring to the part of the dash that is typically gloss black? I'm looking to pick up my Ibiza FR 1.5 Evo this weekend :)

    Could be a build change, I’ve seen that same leather effect dash on a arona.

    Perhaps not for cars older then MY18. I guess many are disappointed with the glossy trim.

    Check youtube videos with Arona Xcellence - it's fake leather too.

    Edit:

    Check out this:

    But it seems only for the basic trim, not if you choose black glossy to get rid of even worse pink trim:

    I ordered an Ibiza FR in October with the following options;

    Leatherette/alacantara seats
    LED headlights
    Desire Red paint

    Still not had a build date yet, hopefully soon! Also didnt know about the dashboard... not sure if I like it or not.... :blink:

    Likewise, although personally I was never a huge fan of the gloss. Still yet to see the leatherette in person, but from first glance I think it's probably a step in the right direction.

    I will probably prefer it in the flesh, just thought the gloss black gave a bit of contrast to the interior.

    Going to email dealership tomorrow for confirmation.

    When did you guys order?

    yes those pictures are of my mates New Seat Ibiza FR, sorry would not let me post them, sounds like there has a been a build change in the last month and anyone with Leather seats will get the leather dash also.

    I ordered mine on 23rd Nov, so will def have the Leather dash, my friend ordered his 23rd Sept, and got the leather dash, so anything after that date will get the leather dash upgrade I have been told as long as you have gone for the full leather interior, not sure what week the change was made though.

    I was contemplating the leather/alcantera interior if I order the 1.5 FR I'd rather have the gloss black, and if a spec change I'd rather the armrest and rear electric windows.

    Is there any real leather in a low-range SEAT apart from the steering wheel and gear knob?

    I know the alcantara seats in mine have simi-leather or some such on the bolsters. Certainly no actual cow.

    Is this new dash panel simulated imitation leatherette or real imitation leatherette? :)

    My dealer came back to me today to say my build slot is week 2 of 2018.... and that means it won't turn up at the dealers until 1st week in February and probably another week on top for all the checks, etc.

    That seems excessively long considering I ordered on 19th October!! :blink::confused:

    Bit annoying considering when I was at the dealers they quoted about 10-12 weeks.
