Just curious as to how long it took to do the work?
The leather door inserts took them a day. They also had to re-pad one side of the drivers seat - on the bottom cushion the rasied portion that is next to your hip facing the door. The padding was quite soft and when you pushed down on it - during exiting, the leather came into contect with something hard. I was told this is very common in these seats even on E46s as well as E36s. If not fixed a hole gets worn into the leather.

I got the seats a few months back, had the wheel put on last week, and the cards done this week just gone.

When I got the seats I put them in, but I had the sterring wheel put on at a independent BMW workshop as the SRS light needs to be reset. Given that an airbag is involved I wanted it done with no faults.
