So are the stock seats just a terrible type of leather? It's just not as soft? Doesn't wear as well?
No, same Dakota leather. That's standard BMW leather. More exclusive models like M4/M3 get MERINO leather wich is more refined. It has a nicer look. Many don't like the Dakota leather wich appears cheaper. Personally i don't mind. That's all.

I much prefer the Lexus semi-aniline. The M2 leather feels much harder and non-compliant to me.
