I've not heard good things about leather on dashboards. Supposedly the expansion and contraction is an issue. But then I'm not sure how the leather in those cases was applied. Perhaps it was only attached in limited areas and left to float otherwise.

In the case of my dash, the vinyl skin is fully attached with one exception --- just the lip of the console floats. Because it is tightly pulled under, I don't think expansion will be a problem here.
