(Thread Starter)
I just joined tonight. Love this forum. I have bought a 92 - 525 BMW with beige leather interior. The leather has cracked somewhat and needs serious cleaning. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Should I just get it re-upholstered or buy a new set of seats from the used auto wreckers?

Thanks! Harp

It may be worth finding a specialist who can fix them.
My mate bought an M3 and the drivers seat was ripped and cracked due to wear and tear, he took it to the BMW dealer who put him onto a specialist, took no time at all and looked like new. If i remember it did not cost too much either.

im buying the EXACT same car this week with the same interior condition... I have the same question as you... I was maybe thinking of getting a set of bad ass seat covers (leather of course) check out this place i found...

Click this.

The hardest part for me would be deciding what colors to get used

Check these guys out. They're manufacturers of custom aftermarket leather interiors. Their interiors for BMW's run about $695us. AND they have Alcantera as well. Your other option would be to use Lexol leather cleaner-the best stuff out there.
Cheers

Harp, if you can find a good set of matching seats from a wrecker, that would be a decent way to go, but like Meeko said, a good uphostery shop should be able to fix them perfectly.

Good luck!
