I don't think it was quite so expensive at time of purchase, definitely under $400. Something I'd never buy for myself thoughWow. $460 for that. You have a great wife. Maybe I can find an upholsterer that can do it for cheaper. Definitely something I wanna do to mine.
Another route you can go is vinyl. A lot of members here have vinyl-wrapped their handles/smart slot/e-brake covers with carbon-fiber vinyl, etc. A lot cheaper, too. All you need is a hairdryer.
