Experience regarding wear of Merino leather seats?

I am planning to opt for merino black leather seating (and dash).

I have been getting warnings that it wears much quicker and will show it's age. I have experience only with Dakota.

Can anyone that has/had Merino leather seats tell me what to expect over the life of my car? (life being maybe 6 years and 50K KMs.

Are you kidding me? For a leather seat cover? I would be pissed ... especially since you paid a $5k premium for the individual package with the premium leather!
