Default Group Buy - Full Leather Seat Replacement Skins & Door Trims.

Hey Guys, Basically I'm looking at getting all new leather for the Saab.
I considered buying used skins from a parted 9-3, but the factory leather quality is appalling.

I've found one manufacturer who is able to make (from factory measurements) all new replacement leather skins (genuine leather) for all seats... driver, passenger and rear, as well as door trims for the 9-3SS, as well as most other cars.

At the moment, the price for replacement skins and door trims for the 9-3 is AU $960 (US $880) as they have never been done before, however, depending on whether others were keen, a group buy would cut the costs down.

Leather is top notch, and the company does re-trims for dealers too.
A variety of colors and finishes are available also.

Here are some examples of the quality....

The old leather skins need to be removed and replaced with the new ones. Not a difficult task I believe, but a time consuming one.
If there is interest, I'll look into it further, if not, I'll probably just order some for myself.

This thread/group buy has had approval from Simon, so I've now re-instated it for those that are interested.

If I had the money I would be on this so fast. For future reference does the company have a website and can they make it in different colors. I would love to have the interior color combo below. It's from the Volvo S60R.

I don't believe they have a website, however I'll find out.
I think I'll be getting the Aero style seats (grey with the cream inserts), as they probably look the best.

I'm not sure whether black seats will look good in they grey interior?

Those Volvo seats are insane, but they are much bigger and more luxurious than those in the 9-3. If you imagine stock leather seats in that colour I don't believe they will look that great?

I'll work on getting more pics and samples!
If anyone is interested, let me know.
Were not talking partial poor quality leather here!

Does this also include NG900's? If so, I would be interested as I'm looking at $550 just for the drivers/passenger seat/back/headrest. At $880 for all seats would be a great buy. Are these all leather or just the seat/backrests? Thanks,... Ron

I will ask, but I believe those can be made. $880 USD for the whole package. However, if you were to find more people interested for the ng900's, you could get the price down by over $120, just for two people. I assume the more people the cheaper it is.

That would be for one design though. I'm not sure how many designs of seats the 900 came out with? Any colours and different finishes are okay though, as long as its the one style

sounds interesting, may get more interest if you could get price levels from the company off how much off in levels of people buying.

The manufacturer is just figuring that out now, when he sends me the figures, I'll post them up.
