My T5 is definitely all leather. See pictures in my re-skin thread.
Take a small sample, light it on fire then sniff. With a magnifying glass examine the edge.

First the came for the cows, until they were all gone.


Then they came for the Naugs...

There are a couple of options on interior including split fabric/vinyl, all vinyl, all leather.

My T5 is definitely all leather. See pictures in my re-skin thread.

Platypus, can you send me photos of your grey interior? If they are better, it would be worth it to buy them and pick them up. Thanks!
