seat recovering, how much?

hey guys, I have a sparco seat that I want to get recovered with either leatherette, leather or alcantara, not sure yet, but basically I would like to know if anyone has got one of these recovered before? how much do you think it would cost to get it done, I wanna run a track seat as my seat never moves out of position, but i dont wanna have the gay red material that I bought the seat with. any info would be great thanks!

new image interiors has done very nice work for one of my cars in the past. Just thought Id add that info, but honestly i cant recall the price of just one seat!

It was years ago now! I think there are lots of different places to go to in the city so im sure if you call around and dont just jump on the first quote you get then you will come out on top

Id like to know where you end up going as I have some panels Im thinking about getting re-finished also
Best of luck

full interior costs only 1000$ but if you go for this it seems little costly

just enquire about the price ranges and can choose from the best. and if you wanna go for only this
keep in mind that only certain type of seat covers fit for all cars.
make sure that the selection is appropriate.
...good luck.

I recently checked out at an automobile store and the leather seats were priced over $500. The best choice is leather seats and although it may cost a bit, it has a real classy look and it would make your vehicle look splendid. Otherwise, you could go for leatherette, but if you are living in some hot country like Cyprus, the seating may stick on and it would make you feel unpleasant. If not, you can try out Altantara which looks quite luxurious and sporty although it becomes a nightmarish experience to get rid of stains.

You can check out the pricing in any local stores because the cost of leather seating varies according to different companies and material.

I recently bought a kit for a vert with the French stitching. nobody I know of has this machine to do it. New Image seems to be a very reputable shop and they have repaired something for me in the past. As for cost to recover two front seats? My guesstimate would be $1000.00 pr. Could run more depending on leather quality etc. I paid 1500.00 USD for my kit not incl. installation for front and back.

I think I've had 18 bmw's in 6 years.

1 90 325is white - keepin
1 87 325i vert -red - keepin
latest addition 1 88-325is red - parts
latest addition 1 89-325i vert - white -fixin/sold
latest addition 1 92-318i vert - blue - parts
latest addition 1 87 325is blk - parts.
latest addition as of 2013-Gold 87-325is auto! it's a keeper!
