well, I have my99TL in the body shop (small fender bender), and got a loaner 2002(3?) TL-S and dont see a major diff. Sure, the engine is pretty badass, even chirps in second, but, the interior is so-so. I think I am swayed to my gray (fern?) interior with natural burlwood look, as apposed to the perforated (holes) leather and black-wood?? To each his own, but I thought I would like it MORE (dont get me wrong I DO like it!!). Are all 2002+ leather perforated? I think it looks cheap when its perforated(holes), like a shoe (you never see couches with perforated leather)

I think the idea is to give it a more sporty look. I personally don't mind it. And no, I don't think it looks like a bowling ball.

wow you get a type s as loaner??? interesting, i wonder why would a dealer use a type s as loaner commpared to tl-p. to answer your question, no, not all 02/03 has that kind of leather. only the type s has that leather, the 02/03 tlp will hae the same kind of leather as yours.

i actually like the type s seats more, look more sporty, tighter, and i like the shape a bit more :)

and then on the other hand, I think the TL interior looks cheaper than the TL-S interior.......to each his own.

errrrr, Ok.... Nice justification.

I guess you like sneakers too, as well as bowling balls? In this forum, we like more than... "uh, yeah, yours is ugly too". I didnt like the black burlwood (found common in the blackwood forest??) or the shoe sneaker perforated leather look.

hey, those are neat British Knights your wearing Kangol Kid!

It's not ugly:mad: I think the type s seats with the perforated leather is more of a "real drivers" seat than the tl-p which to me feels cushy yes, but too isolated feeling. In spirited driving your ass just slides around.

I stated a simple fact.......to each his own. I didn't realize that I had to spell it out for you. I also didn't realize that only your opinion counts.

As far as "In this forum, we like....." I didn't realize that you were the majority opinion.

Don't dish it if you can't take it back. All I stated is that there are other opinions......

oh, and I don't recall saying that I don't like the TL interior....I just stated that I think it looks cheaper than the interior of the TL-S. I still think it looks good. Neither one is perfect.

I like the perforated leather, and it feels great on the steering wheel too. I didn't like the bowling ball trim at first but it actually grew on me, and I actually don't mind it at all.

my99tl: you're entitled to dislike the perf leather, but some of us are also entitled to like it!

I'm wondering why there is such a diff btwn the CL-S seats and the TL-S seats? Why didn't they just use the same ones?
from what i can see and feel ,the cls seats are more beefy and have better lateral support. i guess the reason for being able to put in a bigger seats is that the rear seats aren't as important, whereas in the tls rear room is a concern too?
