I'm thinking about getting the R/T performance package, and I was wondering how much better the upgraded seats are vs. the regular seats. Any opinions?
IMVHO, there's no comparo. The side and bottom bolsters are much more supportive, as well as overall back support and comfort. The stock R/T seat are very good, but the upgrade is worth the money IMHO.

Question: On on the performance seats, the suede has replaced what was genuine leather on the standard R/T seats, correct? Is that suede real? I read elsewhere it was one of those microfiber synthetic surfaces...mnunes said:My understanding of the vinyl vs. leather vs. suede is that all of the seats actually use vinyl for the majority of seating area. The leather seats are actually leather trimmed and the suede seats replace the leather surfaces with suede (also a form of leather, by the way). Only in very high-end cars do you get fully leather seating surfaces.
Regarding opting for keeping the regular seats, I don't think you can do that. When I placed the order for my R/T and added the R&T Performance Group, the dealer said that I had to change the seating to performance suede (the option package requires it for some reason). It's a trade of I wasn't thrilled to make but decided was worth it.
