Fix leather seat

I saw this car and thought it was a good deal. However, the front passenger seat the leather is pulled or nicked.


How much is this to fix? Is it complex to do?

This appears to be leatherette, not Dakota leather. I would check with the selling dealer or a BMW dealer to see what this would cost to be fixed.

Also, this car has the base audio as this car was built march of 2010, it has no amp and no door tweeters. I would consider looking at other options as this car has no options.

No, it is definitely leather. The stitching patterns on the seat backs and door panels are a dead giveaway.

As for the pucker in the upper seat back, you would need to have an upholstery shop look at it to tell you whether it is repairable without replacing the seat covering. If the seller won't work with you to have it evaluated, keep looking.

I can't see the photo but if you are interested in repairing scratches or scuffs in the leather, I recommend http://leatherrepairkits.com/other_products.php.
