    Hi, great write-up here! Did you ever figure out how to remove these creases? Also, how is the install holding up? You had mentioned glue securing the leather to the front seat bottoms... Thanks!

    Thank you!

    I decided to go with the black covers since i'm going with a two tone theme. Door card centers will eventually be red.

    Still need to redo the rear back but I'm finally done with the fronts. They look a bit brighter in the photos for some reason. I'll try and take better pics later this week.

    Yes, just order black and add the perforated option.

    So I've been working on mine for the last two weeks, about 2-3 hrs a night after work. It's not as easy as I initially thought, but having the right tools has made it much easier from when I first started. The rears are complete but I need to redo the back rear. Here's a pic of the fronts, hopefully I'll have them done by next weekend. The scarlet color may be a bit bright for most but I wanted something closer to BMW coral red rather than the tradition cardinal red. I'll eventually finish the door cards and rears panels in a two tone just like the left pic in the second picture.

    can you look at this swatch and tell me which one you chose?

    its hard to tell because when you take pictures in different lighting, brown can look dark or tan depending on the lighting.

    The dark red is hard to photograph and show its proper color, but in person it's color is close enough to the original door cards.

    The Dark Red seems to be the best match.

    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.
    Good to hear! I ordered mine a week and a half ago, I decided to go with Scarlet since I wanted a brighter red than the traditional cardinal red. I have everything taken apart already, I should probably go ahead and order a steamer and hog rings.

    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.
