No, alcantara (var.Alcantra™) is a suede fabric used for seat inserts and dashboards. It's used on upscale luxury marques, such as Mercedes S-class, BMW 7-series, Porsche 996 an the like, so check those displays at the Motorshow and I'll bet you'll find it.Originally posted by cordial

Thanks for that....... just have to wait and see. Someone mentioned that it might be revised seat heating regulators.cordial said:Basil,

Couldn't agree with you more about the "Heath Robinson" hands-free installation. They could at least have put the cables behind the post (or inside it)!
