Seat Re-Trim or Covers For An e21?

Post by guerciotti » Mon Sep 09, 2019 11:12 pm

Hi,
The driver's seat on my car is getting a bit worn. Does anyone know if the original material can be sourced so that the seat can be re-trimmed? It is a facelifted car with black cloth.

Alternatively can anyone recommend a good set of seat covers that fit the standard e21 seats well.

Thanks in advance.

Check at Walloth und Nesch, I think I saw some trim there, they looked quite like the original to me. Not all colours though, however I am pretty sure I saw black

Thank you very much for the suggestion. I did contact them but it appears that they are out of stock and don't have a date for when they will get more stock in. Appreciate it if you are anyone else has any other ideas on where I may be able to source this from.

Thanks again

An alternative would be to have the entire interior redone with leather. Won't be that much more expensive.

No it's my buddy Ite's, re upholstered by a local specialist in the Netherlands who did a really good and detailed job.

Thanks guys - that has given me a bit to think about..

I guess as an alternative I could always get a new front seat if anyone has one available in black....

Very impressive work indeed
Has he done only seats or side panels as well? Any more pics?
As a near future project on the E21 will probably be leather retrimming as well I guess I 'll have lots of questions
