Is the back seat leather too?

I have a 2000 GTS, and I always wondered why the rear seat had a different feel. The front seats seemed like they had thicker leather. Now I'm wondering are the back seats really vinyl?

I have an 03; I always thought it was real leather but now this thread has me wondering.

Not that it realy matters all that much I guess, still feels and looks good to me.

You '03 owners can test and see if it's vinyl or leather by heating a needle red hot with a lighter and then poke it in an inconspicous spot and see if it melts through!

Yep. Leather.
It's one of the few options available with the GTS I believe. wink

No wrinkles to speak of (in mine anywho)
Slight leather smell

My front driver's seat is wrinkling. I'm starting to pour the conditioner to it to keep the leather from looking like my grandma. the shifter boot is fake. took it off to look at my short shifter. After the fake wares, in seats, it will get shiney. The back seats are fake. don't wast your time in conditioning them!
