Can't wait to see. Is the DIY difficult? Do you have to send the old leather back? Is there a core charge?

Lol, why would there be a core charge?

No DIY on this. I have a really reputable upholstery shop less than a mile from my house, so i'm going to let them do this. I'll post what they charge me for the install.

No core charge and they don't want my existing leather LoL.

I'm in a vert and am converting from all dove grey to two tone black and grey. I've already swapped the rear seats and arm rest to black (with used but mint pieces). I also ordered a set of inexpensive titan trim (and black leather inserts for the arm rests), stripped it, then base/clear coated to BMW 354 titanium to match the exterior plus re-blacked the bottom halfs with colorbond BMW black.

Not at all haha. Those are going to be like brand new seats. Much better than buying a "mint" used set.

Iíve never heard of the vendor. Wasnít sure if they just repair and refinish existing covers or if they make new covers.

No individual pieces. I paid $1029.99 (includes shipping) for the set of fronts in the picture. The leather is soft and supple with a nice texture. Not slick at all and I mean at all.

I was hesitant because I really couldn't find any good testimonials on the web but I took the risk anyways. If no problems arise at install I will be happy.

If fitment sucks, I will report it truthfully. I know there are many, especially us vert guys, who would like some good looking seats. I absolutely hate my cracked grey seats. I plan on taking a video after install so everyone can evaluate for themselves as this is a lot of money.
