Looking for an alacantra suede headliner for a e30 m3. Im not sure if this was available from the factory but im sure an upholstry shop could make one no problem. Does anyone know of a good upholstry shop in Mississauga?

lol yes i know this was not available from factory on an e30 m3 but i think it could look pretty cool with the evo suede shifter, steering wheel and ebrake! I talked to my mechanic and it souds like they can do this at the shop np. He also said he could make me an e30m3 rear seat, which ive had no luck in finding!

Just get a rear seat from a convertible. Same shape padding aside from the sides being a bit shorter, which should be easy to build up for any upholsterer. I've got one I had planned to keep for the same reason. Screw paying a million bucks for a seat thats probably super haggard.

The E30 is a lot more labour intensive to create over an E36 liner. The E36 liner is just more less fabric glued onto a backing that gives the shape, whereas the E30 liner is actually cut out of a pattern, stitched together, and held up with rods as well as being glued on.
