Mein Auto: 323i convertible
1998 323 front seats

My 1998 323ic needs new front seats (or new upholstery). I have the light grey leather, which is notorious for cracking and/or showing wear.

What's the most attactive or economical option? Is there a website which deals in replacement seats? Should I just get them re-upholstered? What models' seats are interchangeable with my car's? Is there a leather restoration product that can improve the condition of REALLY worn (though not cut) leather?

I want to sell the car, so longevity is not my first priority. I just don't want my well-worn seats to be the first thing the buyer sees, especially since the car is in great mechanical shape.

Mein Auto: A car.
I replaced my seats from a wrecking yard. They look and feel much better now.
