The '92s 525 that im getting is in nice shape from the outside, but the seats are a different story... It seems obvious that this guy never conditioned or even cared about his seats... the leather is cracked and poop and the leather arm rests are all scabbed up and shitty too. Someone told me to check out leathertique i think it was called since they have a crack filler... but if i got that i would need about 100 gallons of that shit and i donno how it would turn out.

I was checking out leatherseats.com and they have some pretty nice custom seat covers (leather of course) but I figured i would ask around at the board to see what you guys suggest...

thanks in advance

I own a trim shop in Calif be the name of please don't spam us. I charge between $100,600.00 to $200,850.00. It really depends on the condition of the seat padding. You will get a lot of different prices but be sure to ask if they use the original BMW leather. Some trim shops use a generic type of leather. In the auto trimming world you do get what you pay for.

Yes I edited your pricing because you are not allowed to spam this forum..
