Torn Vaders - GTA shop that can fix?



Hello All;

Looking for some help. I have a 98 M3 that I brought back from California. Love the car, but the Vader seat leather is tearing. I've looking into replacing the seat covers but the cost seems very high to buy them on eBay - $800 USD.

Does anyone have a suggested way to fix or recover that is more affordable? I found one place that will repair/patch the tear, but even just a patch is $400.

I've attached a picture.

Any help would be appreciated

TM Customs on Steeles in Woodbridge. Old Italian guy who's been in business for decades. Amazing work from what I hear.

In case you do go with the "cover" route, make sure you don't order Vader covers because those are not Vaders.

Just buy a seat of Vaders

What are they clean like $1000? Hardish to find but available.

Tony at TM Customs. Did my softtop and re-covered my leather seats over the past few months, both jobs were done flawlessly and within days.

Hey Jay, for sure he can. All day he gets dealer referrals for anything interior-related, it's the go-to shop for high quality interior stuff.
