Pair it with a black exterior and you have the most high-maintenance color combo ever.

never going to be able to keep that white interior clean. i used to see it all the time working at mercedes. there is only 1 car that is never dirty. it's like a 1965 merc that has only been driven 20k. i swear all that mileage is just from driving to get maintenance done on it.

Go OEM or go home. I got replica wheels once, then I learned the error of my ways.

Well I wouldn't daily it just like that; I;d put a cover on it of some sort. Then for shows/events, yeah show it off and wear something that wouldn't result in dye transfer.

yea i saw cars with covers and stuff ranging from plastic bags to sheepskin covers. but they seem to leave marks here and there. clean enough to pass, but definitely not pristine.

It would depend on the backing, and just the general reaction when in contact with leather. It's definitely a tricky one for a daily driver.
