So, I was more just curious if this is common throughout the ST's or if it was just me...

I noticed in the back seat, where the belt comes up through the seats... The leather on one side is nice and snug... while the leather on the other side is bunching up and pinching... kind of like... how jeans bunch up into a nub in the crotch area when you sit own.. (Sorry) but that's the best I could come up with. haha.

Anyway yeah... Should the leather in this area be a fairly snug fit? or are other people getting the weird seemingly.... excess leather bunching up?

Too tired to go snap a pic later, but I'll throw one up when I get a chance if I haven't painted a clear enough image.

It doesn't look damaged.. Just looks a bit deformed... Manufacturing quality control issues?

Not by the belts, but I do have this. Hadn't really noticed until you mentioned it. However, my view on leather is that it was made to fit the cow, not my seats. It ain't gonna be perfect. Though the Germans seem to get close.

Yeah, that...

Had the car less than two weeks, and on the weekend we were to watch a friend's 3 yr old, her car died. So she had to commandeer the ST, and I drove the 911 (she hates the floor-pivot clutch pedal on it, and that's OK with me).

Probably some sort of generic child hand grime I would think. Will work on it over the weekend if I get a chance, but this afternoon is the new car show here in Phoenix. Will be shopping for a replacement for that gawd-awful PT Cruiser of hers.
