Dude I have the same problem, anybody else have this problem with the driver's side seat tearing? The bottom half of the seat where you sit has a nice tear on mine. I asked the upholstery shop and he wanted to do the whole seat for $700. How freaking ridiculous is that? I could buy a new one for that price. If you only need the bottom half done it will probably cost you $300. Hope that helps.

$700?!? $900?!? Sheesh, for that much you might as well order some aftermarket seats!
I got some dark tan covers on my front seats for $20 each at Autozone. :-\

Yeah, there you go. Sparcos look kinda weird surrounded by leather, but who cares! They're cushy. :paranoid: Or something. :p

Yeah, but how much did it cost? I live in a place where upholstery shops are a rarity, probably why the price is so ridiculous. Im going to check out some shops in the city and see what kind of prices I can get for fixing the bottom half of my seat. The only problem is that you fix one spot on the seat, then a little later on the rest of it starts to deteriorate. Oh well.

yeah, i didn't want the patch i needed to fix to not match everything else so i just got it all done at once, my cousin knew someone that does leather so i had it all done for 950 instead of 1200 usual. It was a shitload but it looks good and now i have the new car smell that you can't buy in stores :) :)

I replaced both leather sections (back and bottom) of my G for a little over $500 almost three years ago. I did all of the work myself however. This was from Scottsdale Infiniti.

If you want to repair the tear, or need anything at all for your leather, call the folks at Leatherique. Those folks know their leather and what to do with problems.

ok, ok - one of you had it right. dads an infiniti master tech, and of course he knows people. i bought the leather @ my fater's price from the dealer, and he had it installed for free from the leather guy he sends cars to. I'm just lucky to have my dad in the business. For example, I bought my 92 three years ago, with 60k on the engine for two grand. and I get crazy discounts on EVERYTHING.

mmmmh...

I know... I have a couple of bad tears as well... in my passenger and in my rear seat... I think the 700-900 digits are a bit outrageous! So if anyone could help out with some hook-ups that's be great... ;)
Right Cas? :p

If not... I'll try the infomercial... or seat covers... or maybe even Sparcos... :lol:

My driver side seat had a couple of tiny tears that were barely noticible, the pass side was nearly flawless.
I had a couple of sparco torinos, but I ended up selling them before putting them in, I now have 4 momo seats (2 ft, 2 rear) but i'm still tring to figure out how to mount the rear seats. I got a pretty good hook up, normally they're around $2000 for four, I paid less than wholesale> $1000 for four, i'll post pics soon.
