    ordered last year... car due in 14 days+
    Error on order.. I wanted upgraded Laguna leather ... 1,700... Black with red seat belts
    They ordered the standard black Nappa/Alcantara instead...

    Looks like the "suede like" Alcantara is just the middle sections of the front and back seats.

    Is the difference in leather the entire seats? or just the middle inserts? or "trim"
    Is there part of the middle of the door panel that is also part of the Laguna upgrade?

    If I go aftermarket can a high quality leather shop mirror the entire Laguna upgrade? And make them "vented?"

    Can't get answers from dealer!

    I appreciate any input!!!

    for $1700 i think its the whole seat, but i could be wrong...when i see the Alcantara pics i dont think the border looks the same as mine does.........but im going by memory right now

    $1700 for 4 panels seems extreme.....the leather seats are Really nice.....and im a fussy mofo

    It was just the inserts in the car I sat in if I remember correctly. The second part you need to ask a GOOD trim shop

    I wish I would have got the upgrade but I loved my old seats in the 2012 so decided not to. IMG_0663.jpg

    My understanding is that with the non-laguna seats the inserts are alcantara and the trim is nappa leather. The entire seat and door inserts are laguna leather with the option.

    I ordered Laguna and almost quit on my order after 5 months. Had a car at a dealer was only missing laguna. Trim shop quoted me $1900 to re-do with Katskin leather, and I would keep the old seat covers. Forgot to ask about the vented part

    On the Laguna, the entire seat (middles and bolsters) are in the leather. The non-Laguna has a suede-like center and standard leather on the outside of the bolsters.

    I am researching Katzskin for aftermarket leather also... trying to see if they have a full "kit" (entire front seat, back seat and door panel inserts) in either their standard factory type leather or softer/better "Tuscany" leather. Trying to make sure Katzskin kit will work since they do NOT show SRT or Hellcat in their product list. Leather installer told me that the Challenger basic seat ... front/bank and door insert.. is the same as the RT or SXT... so it would work.

    The leather on the Laguna seats is different (entire cover is different -- seat and cushions etc are same). The stock seats look more like a thinner vinyl vs. the Laguna leather. I like the stock seats a lot.

    The seats of an RT or SXT are NOT the same as an SRT, unless things have changed between model years. I have an 09 RT and I bought the seat covers from a stock SRT and they did not easily slip onto the seats. I would have had to add foam/padding for the covers to fit correctly. I ended up selling the SRT seat covers and went to an upholstery shop and got new seat covers made.

    What does the door panel look like? is there also alcantara on that? or is it all nappa? Thanks
