    Thank you


    I bought this kit from Amazon. The front seats needed ~120 rings so I had to purchase another 100pack of rings to finish the back seats. 3/4Ē rings work best.

      Glad to see that others have followed my lead. Question, did your kit include the leather to cover the seat backs and are they still covering these pieces with that thin grey foam?

        It did come with the leather for the seat back and they have stopped putting foam on that part. I just need to wait for my steamer to be delivered so I can warm it up and recover the back cover. I am going to go over the oem as the leather is so well attached it would likely destroy the card board. Pics up soon

              I was able to recover the back in my garage with some steam and some strong glue. Pics to follow.

                    Seat backs were bare leather. I stripped the original leather down to cardboard and glued them on with strong upholster stuff.

                      Okay I just ordered my set!

                      A few questions for you guys. Did any of you replace the shocks on your sport seats? What stapler did you guys use to staple the leather on the center pads? What type of glue are you guys using to glue the leather the rear seat cover?

                        Where did you get the option to pick that style of stitching?

                        I like how these turn out and finally got my color swatch sheet, but I'm still having a hard time finding a match for natur.

                          This stitch pattern is specific to convertibles only. They now offer it on their website, though i donít think coupe seat centers will accept them without modification.

                            I make my rear coupe seats in the horizontal style stitching, the coupe/sedan seats will accept a horizontal stitched cover.
                            How is the feel of the leather? I'm very curious about this because just purchasing enough leather to cover front seats cost more than they charge for the kits, and that's wholesale pricing.

                              Looks like good stuff. I just bought another E30 and the sport seats I wanna put in it are shot of course.. these Lseat.com covers look perfect for the price

                                Ordered seat covers 4/16/18 Front and rears.

                                Covers were delivered 4/29/18. Really impressed with the two week turn around.

                                Replacing my Natur interior on my vert. I asked for swatches before ordering. They don't have the~exact OEM color however there are two that are very close;

                                Bisque- VERY close to OEM color but seems to be missing some tan and appears a little dark. This was the color recommended by Lseat.

                                Lark - A little bit lighter than OEM but with a but more tan added. Due to sun fade in my car on the carpets, door pockets, door cards etc are not the same color. I feel this color brings the interior together for all the sun fade and slight mismatch. I went with this one.

                                I have ordered hog rings and piers from amazon. hope to tackle this weekend. Will post pictures when done. Wish me luck first upholstery attempt. Doesn't seem too bad based on DIYs.
