Nice! Looks like they know what they are doing! Wot sort of money they quoting? I'm in talks for approx 300 that was with Bentley quilting but not sure I want that so they said may be cheaper. The only downside with this is that it's supply only and I have to fit myself or get a local upholsterer to fit them, they use the originals as templates and have all the loops built in to attach back to the seats.....

I was quoted 650 plus vat in black and ivory full leather like the passat in the gallery that was for a captain seat and a double front,
They manufacture the covers off there templates , time wise they said 10 days to make from order then 4 hrs to trim the seats which i didn't think was bad for leather and only losing the use of my van for 4 hrs.

Sounds like a good price was that 300 for leather on the front and the backs of the seats as some use a vinyl on the backs?

beware on mail order exchange seat covers for vw seats as there a various sizes of foams and fixings , some are thicker than than others and some are narrower in key areas . headrests vary hugely also. be also aware of so called full leather seats that actually have very little real leather and quite abit of saddle leather which is a15% real leather in a man made material. looks like leather , feels like leather almost smells like leather. ade

i've been using quite abit of the saddle stuff on the contract upholstery(designer specified)and its not that bad really.But you can get a decent leather for not much more money than you are paying for the saddle stuff so you are better sticking with the real leather.
