My 525i has some rough looking seats. What are some good solutions to cover all 4 of my seats to clean the look of the car up? I looked at new leather covers but they are really pricey. Any ideas guy?

There are a few places that make seat covers that would fit your car. Try CoverKing.com and there are others but I can not remember the names. I would need to search google for "BMW Seat Covers". Hint, Hint!

iggee!

iggee.com I'm gonna order these by christmas!!

It comes out to 390 before tax or shipping... with the Governator trying to temporarily raise taxes... I don't know if I should order now or wait.

Synthetic Custom fit for e34... it looks pretty good. I got some samples in the mail, i liked them.

Make sure when you order, you specify whether you want the left-twisted version, or the right-twisted version. lol

Just checked it.. and yes they do.... they look just like the iggees... and cheaper... and if their out of California then I don't have to pay the sales tax... hmmmmm.... I gotta investigate this some more!

I just talked with the guys at bavarian and they say they are exactley the same as Iggee's. Comments were they have installed a few and it is really hard to tell they are pvc based. Look and feel great. I am argering from iggee as they are offering free shipping and they have arm rest covers.

So the difference between Iggee and BavAuto is that for about 80.00 more I get 2 Arm Rests from Iggee?

oops, I mean $55.00 more... cause CA Sales Tax would be about 30 bucks for 390.00... and free shipping... saves 25.00.

I installed the IGGEE last weekend. Easy project once i got the headrest out. really had to pull hard! They look great. Not real leather but well worth it.

i used to have a 93 525i in states and had the whole upholstery custom made.the seats were light gray and my e34 was black so i went with two tone with black on the outer sides of the seat and dark gray inside of the seats to match the dash color and also had the back of the front seats painted black.had the BMW emblem sticthed to the head rests.that cost me $700 about 3 years ago.and after getting the whole car painted and put some tints on the windows it looked gorgeous.

sorry but no longer have the car.last i heard it was somewhere in florida.when i sold it it had 256K miles with original trans and engine.i bought that 525 when it had 153K miles on it and everyone called me an idiot but i knew it would not give me any issues so i went ahead and did all the stuff to make it look nice.the only maintanance i did was spark plugs,waterpump and thermostat and routine oil change that's it.loved it but now i have a new toy.when i have privilidges to put some pics i'll post this new one.just added HID today and will convert fogs with HID as well sometime this week.it has a very nice looking blue.i'd call it parliament blue but not sure the factory name for it.it has 17"s...soon i'll order the smote tail lights,smoke indicators for front and side and the angel light head light mod to make it look a little bit more NICER :).
