White interior?

I am about to pickup a 86 E28 535i that I am going to do a engine swap and lite restoration to make it a daily driver. The one problem I have is that the car has a unbelievably mint WHITE interior. I have a black lab that goes every where with me. I put covers all over my rear seats in my 76 BMW 2002 with brown interior and you can see his hair everywhere.

My question is how hard is a interior swap and whats that white interior worth?

White Interior? Do you mean pearl beige? which is a light tan. Never heard of white interior.

Sorry I don't have any pics yet to show you but I don't think they are any shade of beige. They are straight up white. Maybe they were done buy a shop in the past. this might explain why a car with 270k miles on it has such a nice interior.

Likely a leather resto job as white was not a standard color.

Shame you can't post pics of interior and the 2002!!

Swap black lab for a white one or a hairless dog
