Luckily the original owner looked after it cosmetically so leather is all in pretty good condition and i havent had to do much besides leatherique condition and keep it clean. Drivers bolster has marks but nothing substantial so cant help there sorry.

Boston and modena seem to be really difficult colours to photograph too, i know of one guy who got autoberry covers and had an old school trimmer fit them and looked quite good, just a shade or two lighter, whether thats mine aging or whatever im not sure though

Local upholstery shop quoted me about $750 per seat to re-cover with leather from Relecate.

Correct! Eisenmann absolutely the way to go all day long!

That's just labor - leather is extra - correct?

I recently installed a Stromung. Sound is great at wot and tame around town, very affordable buy- in if you did decide to change it up later on it would be easy to get rid of.

I've been recovering Modena seats for a while, a slow but steady project. The color shift on Modena that is exposed to the sun is insane. My autoberry covers are a very good match for the parts of the original covers that never saw the sun. This is a problem for me though, because the door panels do not match now. Going to need to paint them, or possibly use black panels, and have a hybrid modena/black interior.

Your seats look great though, but the color I see in the picture looks just like the color shift from the sun. Modena goes from yellow to brown over time.

You can easily tell if there has been color shifting by looking under the passenger bottom seat pad. There's visible portions that aren't exposed to the sun when you lift it.

Ditto Stromung or Eisenmann. Haven't had Eis on an e36 personally but I have one on my e46 M3 and it's very nice sounding!

Yes I assume so, I mean I'd be shocked if that included the leather too but I didn't get a serious quote. Just a ballpark. One hide is like $500 or so and should be enough for two seats.

Relicate is $700 plus per hide.

This is what I was looking at for my seats, says $499 and with tax and shipping it's another $80-$90, unless I'm missing something...?
