Thumbs up BMW Seat Covers

Alright lads,
I'm having serious difficulty trying to find anyone on the net (preferably in the UK) who make seat covers for BMW's.
I'm looking for tight fitting, aesthetically pleasing ones, not just durable rough ones.
Any help or pointers would be appreciated!

I'd even take non-BMW seat covers, as long as they were good quality and tight fitting

May I ask why? Aren't they a bit 70's or used in Toyota Carina mini-cabs?

It's actually for the woman's e46. it's a light grey interior and the seats are just plain grubby and impossible to keep clean so id be wasting my time getting it constantly professionally valeted.
That's why I'm looking darker seat covers.
And also why I'm more interested in BMW one's, so as to avoid the 'Toyota carina mini'cab' look.
There used to be a company over here made tailor-fitted ones, but can't source them anymore!

I see. I used to have a topaz blue e46 and I know the interior you mean. I don't know if anyone does them though. Depending on your budget it might be worth trying to find a second-hand leather interior.

Funny you should mention that about replacing the seats altogether.
I was looking on ebay today at this: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/BMW-E46-Coupe-...d=p3286.c0.m14
but wasn't sure if it would fit a SE model as opposed to the sport?
Any clue?

I have cream leather in mine and use a Halfrauds seat cover when I know I'm going to be doing a dirty job or the cars in for work.

That will fit an SE, as long as it's a coupe and not a saloon

Fiddly job, but the alcantara trim looks great. Might look a bit odd against the light grey rooflining though.

Im glad one of us is on the ball! Well spotted!
Dunno what to do, just have to keep a look out for a decent set of non-tacky covers!

While you're at it you may aswell source a vinyl roof and an earthing strap to complete the look.
