    Those seats look pretty nice. If you don’t have any large tears Ayou should just buy a leather refinishing kit and clean up the leather and cracks.

    if i get coupe sport leather covers will this fit my convertible sport seats? basically changing the horizontal stripe to a vertical stripe? or is there more differences in them??
    You have to chose the convertible seat with the horizontal lines. The vertical seat line covers use a different style foam to accommodate the vertical lines.

    So, i have a question.

    i have been looking at these lseat covers for a little while now also.

    I have ordered the colour samples for me to choose what one to go for. The car is white so i can be pretty flexible with what colour i choose. (i am english, colour is spelt with a u)

    Looks amazing guys! What did you guys do for the door cards? Those of you who have done this on a cabrio, what do you do about the rear deck? I have a cabrio and looking to change the color of my interior but not sure about what to do with the door cards and rear upper deck and paneling around the seat belts.

    Someone earlier asked about the picks I used from harbor freight to make the install easier. You'll need these to make holes as you're hooking the leather to the seat frame.

    Thanks for letting me know.

    When I placed my order, I wrote in the "Order Comments" section that I wanted an extra pair of headrest covers and that I authorized them to charge me the extra cost. I also went ahead and sent an email reminding them that I ordered extra headrest with my order along with my order number. The response I got was "Ok". I just crossed my fingers at that point but I did end up receiving the extra headrest at no cost so thumbs up to them.

    No, I've been following his channel as he works on his e30 and he just happened to post that video yesterday. Figured I'd share.

    I steamed everything and it helped a lot for everything but I guess the headrests didn’t expand enough. I also used a heat gun to tighten the leather up a little, but also installed them in the car to let them sit for a couple weeks and then hit them with some leather conditioner once they’ve tightened up even more.

    Thanks Mike! Yeah this is the first e30 I will own that will have a solid interior and I’m very excited for it. I think I am going to remove the headrests and cover then with a layer of foam because they are a big baggy to the touch.

    I actually opted for no piping when ordering but they went ahead and did it anyways. I would have much preferred them with out it. If I didn’t have rips I would have just cleaned mine up, yours turned out very good.
    Did you steam any of the seat foam/headrest? It was night and day after i steamed all my foam, everything was nice and snug except for my rear seat back that needed extra padding.
