I am hopeful but I'm not going to get excited until I see the end product. I am, like everyone else, at least a little skeptical. I wrestled with the decision to buy these for months. Lets all hope the fitment and appearance is good so that a viable seat restoration avenue is opened to all. Not to mention it would be a bummer if I wasted a grand, sheesh.

I was delayed getting the seats to the upholstery shop but they were delivered this past week. I should get them back this Monday or Tuesday. Pics and video of seats both outside and inside the car will be provided. I really hope they come out good.

Going to give the interior carpet (and interior in general) a good cleaning today since the seats are out.

He worked on them Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. I don't think he worked solely on the seats, just portions of day. He will have them wrapped up tomorrow, worst case Tuesday.

You all be the judge. I'll just say there are aspects that could, and I wish were, better but compared to what I had I'm happy, not ecstatic but happy.

All total with install: $1576.50

The album is long but there are pics outside and inside the car. I hid nothing and made sure to capture all angles and imperfections.

You are welcome m3forum as I appreciate the knowledge you all drop on the regular.

Not bad, not great either. For a pre made template and total cost of $1600 I think this about right.

Pre-made skins like this need heat to shrink the leather into a tighter fit. If you can maintain how matte they are now, eventually they will look better and better.
