    I just sent in the seat covers from my vert to lseat.com so they can create patterns and match the stitching. They offered a 50% discount for sending in old covers so couldn't resist the sweet deal!!! =)

    They should be back in about a month or so. I'll post up pictures when they come in. I chose the S0019 Brows color as well. I think it'll have a nice contrast against the blue interior.

    Everything I have read implies that aftermarket heating elements are not even close to putting out the heat of the OEM heaters. Or maybe that is just the low end EBay units. If you pay more money maybe that buys you better quality and higher output. I know the heaters in my Porsche Cayman and Audi TT will make you sweat even in single digit temperatures outside.

    Just something to think about.

    I need to contact LSeat and see if they can make covers for a 4-door ix with the ski pass through. Even if I have to send them my covers to use as a pattern.

    I am not certain what kind of leather it is. I can say that it is as thick as the original leather. My original leather was pearl beige.

    My desire was a darker brown and I am very happy with the color. The Leatherique treatment made the leather even a bit darker which is fine by me.

    Looks awesome for the price. What kind of leather is it? What colour did you originally have?

    Driver's seat all back together except for a couple of the plastic trim pieces. I am very happy with how it turned out.

    One down, one to go.

    I have no doubt that I will be buying a black perforated set for the sport seats in my iX at some point in the future.

    Like I said, I still need to put them back together but, here is a look at how they turned out.

    The driver's seat is all covered. For never having done upholstery work before I am very happy with the way they turned out. I still have to put the top and back together but, I cleaned and painted the rails and need to let them dry first.

    The only observation I have is regarding the bottom seat cushion. The original leather wrapped around the bottom sides and had enough material to wrap underneath and was then stapled. The Lseat.com cover only had enough material to wrap around the sides. Fortunately the 3M adhesive I used secured the cover in place while I installed it. Once installed the hog rings further secured the entire seat bottom and cover to the seat frame.

    I gave the leather a treatment of Leatherique rejuvenator oil while the seats are in where it is warm. I figured it couldn't hurt.

    It is difficult to capture the true color of the brown. It looks very similar to the current darker brown in the modern BMWs. More pics to follow as I work on the front seats.

    I only ended up with two creases that I wish were not there but, I have seen other seat covers installed by E30 owners that did not appear to fit as nicely as these. So far I am very happy with them. Now to tackle the more intricate front seats.

    Finally found some time to get back on this project. I tackled the back seats first thinking these would be easier. The covers fit nicely. I did have to use some pliers for added grip as I was stretching the cover over the foam.
