Leather repair - recommendations?

Hi,
I have two 2" tears on the left "raised" part of the drivers bucket seat (E46 sport and premium pkg) and was wondering would anyone be able to recommend a repair kit, or a professional that might be able to do the work for me in the GTA (preferably downtown)?

I searched the forum and found lots of recommendations for exterior detailing and repairs but not many for interior, and specifically leather repair.

Any help or advice is much appreciated.

get one of those as seen on TV kit like 20 bucks...it works like close to 70% of the original if you match the colour right

Erm...No, most certainly not.

Leather repairs require significant skill and are best undertaken by a professional leather repair specialist.

They're the best known leather repair guys. I can't verify their quality so use your own judgment when they visit.

Thanks for the info Holden...that's what I'm looking for

Jameswbl not sure I'd go near that as seen on tv stuff. I've learned the hard way in life that you usually get exactly what you pay for, so I'd like to get these tears fixed as best as possible. Thanks.

Go see Serge at New Image Interiors - 416-752-0883. 1630 Midland Ave. They do really good work, I've used them for small stuff and I know people who have used them for interior redos.

Serge at new image does really good work. I have been going there for 10 years now. I have had small stuff to full interior done by them. I have always been happy with their work and service.
