hey ive read that sum of u guys hav dun ur interior and i really want to do mine but this guy told me it was gonna cost a bundle to do everythin. i was wonderin roughly how much it will cost me? i wanna do the works...seats, door trims, roof liner, and carpets. And does anyone hav any door panels that will fit in a 87 320i. thanks. by that way this is my car.......
Reskinning your seats alone will easily cost over $650. That is basically if you only replace the leather/vinyl and don't bother to rebuilt or refoam the seats. Then there is headliners... I had a '67 VW Beetle that I rebuilt from the ground up, and upholstery is NOT my game, so I had it done, and the headliner alone cost me $850. Custom Door Panels? I used to work for a high end stereo store in Seattle (Magnolia Hi Fi) and our car stereo installers were the BEST in the industry. They built door panels for every type of car imaginable, and you can expect about $1500 for a pair of decent panels, or well over $3000 for nice ones.
Just a heads up! If you are handy with a sewing machine, you can save BUNCHES of money, and you can actually make money on everyone else that would come to you to have their work done... Just a thought!
