Based on the number of posts on the subject, that seems to be the case of the ones that were showing up in HA's with the all-black stitched interiors. And that led to the discovery of them being vinyl.
The 16 HA my dealer swapped to get my HA had the white stitching on the armrest and that was the first thing my eye was drawn to when I looked in the window. It looked garishly out of place. My 16 HA has the black stitching on the armrest.
The 14 Overland Morrocan black interior I had used white accent stitching throughout. The armrest material perfectly matched the leather seats so I had no reason to ever wonder if it was leather or vinyl. On the 15-16's in question, I believe people were also noticing a different texture to the armrest material?
