    i have black leather interior and the seats have the standard black stitching. does anyone know of any colour die that will work on the cotton stitching but not stain the leather seat?

    My car is imola red and i think the stitching will look good red too!!

    Any Ideas Ppl??

    I don't think it can be done the way you are hoping by why not speak to a leather trimmer and have some red piping added to the seats?

    Here's an example of what can be achieved. This is the leather that came in the Touring I purchased

    No worries, I think the red and black would look nice in your car

    Have a look at this link http://www.yell.com/ucs/UcsSearchAct...e+Upholsterers

    I thought so when I bought it too

    The rest of the car is a lemon but at least the interior looks pretty cool

    second that..its amazing the difference piping can make...if you hav black velour car mats you could take them too a carpet manufacturer or sewer and they will bind the edges off your mats with red thread!
    im just waiting for mstyle too get new mats with the m logo then i"ll be taking them too a guy in glasgow who is going too bind the edges with thread that matches my piping!!these little things can make a major difference!!

    I agree, it's the attention to detail that can separate your car from the crowd.

    Piping on the mats sounds like a cool idea, have you had any quotes that may assist the OP?
