    Hey, I have an E46 325Cic with 200k miles on it. Leather seats are pretty worn: faded color, cracks, rips and very dirty; I’ll attach pictures. Any suggestions on good repair kits that get the color accurately? The interior color is NATURBRAUN Montana N6NG. Thanks!

    So, my driver's seat has a massive tear in the seat bottom. Previous owner left this thing sitting in the sun for ages and the leather's hard as rock. After poking around a bit, I ordered replacement leather for both front seats from Lseat.com for about $400, and got a quote for installation for...

    Hey guys, got a 2000 323Ci in the fall and am finally getting around to cleaning the driver's door. It's pretty dingy all over and wanted to know what parts are leather so I don't use the wrong cleaning products on them. Made a diagram to help specify the sections. Obviously A and E are not...

    I am in the thick of a complete interior redo (it looks awesome, and I will post the story eventually). Next stage is replacing the leather on the seats and headrests. I don't want to do lseats.com (no chance it can be excellent at that price). I am in $2k already on the refresh, and I can...

    Hey all, I've been trying to research swapping the leather from one front seat to the other, and couldn't find anything promising. I've had my M3 for a little bit now, and with 100k miles, and several previous owners the front driver's seat is quite worn. Thankfully there are no tears in the...

    Fellow E46 Converts, The driver's seat leather in my 02 330ci vert is showing its age. I am wondering if there was ever an option offered in the US for cloth seats. If not, has anyone ever reupholstered with cloth? How did it turn out? Thank you.

    Thought I'd throw up some pics of my current interior setup before I swap it out for OE CSL. Let me know what you guys think. If anyone else has Kiwi out there let's see what you got!

    Today I re-wrapped the pads on the front and rear door handles. I went on eBay and found a scrap of Grey leather (it was really inexpensive). Turns out it was an exact color match for the BMW leather. So I made a couple of items for the car, but with the leftovers I decided to replace the...

    The dash in my car started out as black molded vinyl, and it has done the trick for 11 years, but it just wasn't interesting to look at. I was recently in an auto upholstery class, So when my second Expansion tank decided to burst on the freeway, I felt the logical thing to do would be to park...

    I caught a sale and got a Leatherique Rejuvenator and Prestine Clean package and used it on my seats and steering wheel this weekend. Thought I'd share my experiences with the community :) My car is 8 years old and I've never tried cleaning the seats other than just wiping down with a rag. It...

I need to find the most cost effective way to get these seat up to par... they don't need to be perfect but I'd like to clean them and patch them up until I can save some cash for new leather. Help me e46-Fanatics you're my only...

    I owned a e46 330i, 2001 to be exact. I now own a beautiful 335i e90. I miss my seats though. They were alcantra suede. Most comfortable seats I have ever sat in. I noticed the euro specs have suede as an option and I want to sell my perfect leather interior and swap out for euro suede sport...

    Hey e46ers! So all my seats were in MINT condition. However, in the past few weeks, both my driver and passenger seats ripped! They ripped in the SAME spot on each seat LOL! EXACTLY on the stitching line.. There's no frays or tears; it's an exact, perfect rip. I initially thought about glueing...

    What products are you guys using to maintain the health of your leather seats? Definitely noticing some wear on my seats and hoping to avoid tears in the future.

    Hello Everyone!! The door panels in my 330 are really worn out, the color in the leather section is really faded (you can see the leather natural color in some areas). I have a black panel and decided to see how duplicolor works over leather and made some test. The color matches my interior...
