    Does the shop sell to individuals?
    There was information that it sold only to upholstery shops.

    I have an early 323i with the checked pacific blue interior which probably uses the same bolster material as what you'd need Jorgosas. I've been looking for the checked material but haven't found any (anyone have any leads)? I did find the bolster material through world upholstery (https://www.worlduph.com/). I just received a sample of their 1037 Pacific Blue cloth...at first I didn't think it was the right color, it is so much darker than what is in my car but I'm sure it is just my interior is more faded than I realized. Also, blue houndstooth is available from Le Mans Auto Fabrics (http://www.lemansautofabrics.co.nz/index.html) in New Zealand but they don't send samples and I don't have any experience with their product.

    Thanks - they have been good! They sit slightly low for my liking, so I may space them up at some point.

    Those are some sick recaros

    This is what I'll probably end up doing honestly. The houndstooth would be the hard part to source anyway.

    Nice Recaros.

    I believe that when foam gets older, seat covers wear out very quickly. When a foam bolster is new, it supports the cover from beneath.

    Sometimes you can find comfort seats for sale.
    You may disassemble them and get some fabric.

    Your side bolster cloth has faded.
    Even if you find the original cloth, you'll have to redo all seats.

    Here is a low-mileage car.
