535i new leather seat covers

Post by ctweber01 »

Are there good sources for 535i replacement leather seat covers?

How difficult is it to replace these?

Thanks!

this is a job for an auto upholstery guy unless you know something about it I would suspect.

World Upholstery
GAHH Automotive

Offer material and kits

Maybe your local auto upholstery guy has the materials you want to have cover your seats

Maybe try this, I believe this guy has been in business for a long time with very good if not perfect reviews, I’m going to get his kit when it’s time to do my seats, they also offer both leather and vinyl depending on your preference.

These sets are pretty good. My friend has a really good upholsterer installing a set of Llama skins in his 635Csi. The photos look good but I won't see them in person for another week or so.

I’d be very interested to hear your opinion on how they look in person, please keep us posted.

These aren't covers, but if you wanted to re-leather your seats, you can try it yourself for $349...

If you have standard seats, this should be pretty straight forward.

I plan to place an order with gahh this morning. My local upholstery guy says they do good work, and instead of him measuring, trimming, and sewing raw materials, he recommends me buying their precut and having them install
