    off a newer car.
    quarry do some good sets for your car
    prices range from 300 to 500 depending on what you want.

    gotta be tons cheaper than getting them covered,and a propper oem seat.

    these seat re-furbers never get the look,feel and quality of the original oem's

    I had a quote to get my rear bench and uprights done on my Touring and the price was £700 quid for leather and £400 quid for imitation

    As they were already leather and I was just wanting a colour change I went for the Dye option
     
     

  10. exactly as i said

    some like original oem,others wanna be different.
    being different comes at a higher price tho

    all i want is a set of grey sport leathers to replace my black sport leathers so the prices i see dont look too bad for the oem quality.

    As they were already leather and I was just wanting a colour change I went for the Dye option
    how much did it cost to do m8?

    jasondd78>> You done a good job mate, i dont have the skill or more importantly- PATIENCE!! However, the Mrs has all the patience in the world (shes with me) so i might have to get her those shoes she wants

    OP, maybe get some materials like jasondd78, get a seat, any seat from a scrapper and practice??

    Then when you have mastered it, do mine!!!!!
