Question Seats?

My seats are in bad shape.
The leather is old and cracked.
Is there a good website to find replacements?

Please let me know.

Thanks

L8r,
WharffRat :-)

Your best bet is to find a good local upholstery shop. Even if you find them online in decent condition, you'll pay top dollar, you'll be further ahead having them redone....

Here in San Diego we go to Tijuana baby. LOL
or just this side of the border too.
Yeh if the mechanics of the seat still work good I'd find a good local shop to reupholster.
Ive seen some sweet sets of seats on ebay but usually need to be local pickup to make it worth it. Good time to upgrade though, ie some people go from the i to the is seat, which I have. "bolstered" "sport" seat. friggin heavy though.
Just keep looking they do come up.
Also find a local BMW dismantler, we have one here that usually has some good seats, or even some BMW specialty shops have some in the back or in some parts cars in the back or offsite. or they know were to find em too.
Or any "junk yard" may have an old e30.

Id go strait to Sparco's or Simpson or Recaro.
Cant afford it yet.

I Just got my new used ebay BBS basket weave center caps last night baby.
SWWWEEEETTTT!!!! 28 bucks each!!!!. $54 new
I think he has/had 4 more up for auction yesterday.

Good luck

Cheers,
