Leather seat covers for M Roadster

I am looking for options for new seat covers for my 1998 Z3 M Roadster. The GAHH covers are over $2k, so I am looking for alternatives. Has anyone used this company? Looks like they do make seat covers for the M Roadster.

I bought my leather from Leatherseats.com and did the installation myself. The black Z3 Sport seats on their YouTube video are mine. I sent them my seat cushions since they can do a better job that way plus they repaired the worn-out foam on the bolsters.

I bought upgraded leather and glad I did. The new leather is much better than OEM and the fit is perfect.

I think so, but that did not include installation.

I used leatherseats.com also for my 2002. The red/black seats on Youtube are mine. I had them install and everything. Very happy

I spend a ton of time on this wound up buying M Fabric from ASC Fabrics and having a local upholstery shop make the seats for me. Great results.

I like those. Are those snaps on the custom seat belt holders?

Yes, rivets on the top that do not open and snaps on the bottoms that do open. Thank you, as I said, I put a lot of time into thinking this through.

I purchased my seat covers from Lseat.
They make a (close to OEM) replacement leather seat cover and the cost is only $300 ...
