Leather is classy, vinyl...

Sorry for the late reply, I just saw this.

Disregarding all future difficulties in finding door cards, etc:

I let my aged, experienced, comfortable leather (2-door) seats go.
I really wish I hadn't. I'd changed the carpet from black to tan and it looked really classy. (And I could find dropped hardware in the footwells.)
There's nothing like old leather to make a comfy seat. Check any Olde Englishe Gentlemen's club or genuine barber shop chair. Or my brother's vast recliner.
Leather cracks, but there's a ton of products to restore the suppleness.
Old leather smells like old leather and can be repaired.
Old vinyl smells like a... an unfortunate gastric event.. in a beach ball. and when it cracks, fades or hardens you're hooped.

Try it out with the black seats and vinyl door cards until you can find door cards.

Then sell the seats to me to replace my green cloth (4-door) numbers. Does your rear seat have a ski pass?
No, I'm not an opportunist; I really think leather is better than vinyl. Thousands of cows can't be wrong.
