Upholstery repair
I have a convertible e30 with a split in the rear seat. Just looking for a good upholstery repair shop in the Hamilton area

you can't repair the split. you can patch it but it will look stupid. there was a bulletin back in the day where bmw would send the cars to a trim shop and patch up the area. looked bad. The reason it can't be repaired is that the leather has shrunk due to sun and heat. That is why the stitching split. I've tried fixing one of mine and it just split elsewhere. either do the butcher patch job or get new upholstery. the leather would cost about 300.00 plus installation.

Where would I go get that done. I would like it to look proper.
