You can buy the pre-cut and stitched seat covers and pre-wrapped door panels, I don't think you can buy flat pieces of finished leather from them though.

I'm sure I heard of people doing that... maybe I'm wrong.

You can order leather to match any car made at an Auto Uphosltery shop.

They have books for every car with the different colors/grains available to match OEM - be advised though, leather ain't cheap, it was 25 cents/square inch back in 1980 when I worked at a custom shop...

The match is dead on as this is what they use to replace individual panels in seat covers when they need repaired.

What's your purpose?

If you're looking to do a color change, I'd consider the leatherique products.

It's for a classic e30, I'm having it painted OEM Monaco blue tomorrow and I want it to have an OEM saddle brown interior.

Ahh, I see. Well, if your current interior is in decent shape I'd take a good long look at going the leatherique route before dropping the coin for new leathers. It's a bit labor intensive, but I redid my front seats from black to grey over the weekend and had phenomenal results.

You have any before/afters? The seat in the car are flawless no rips or cracks, I might have to look into leatherique.
