Found this thread whilst searching for answers; thought I'd use it instead of starting a new thread...

My driver seat gives me a numb arse after half an hour - it needs new foam! Like sitting on a breeze block. Anyone had any joy having their seats renovated/re-upholstered?

Happy new year all, by the way! I might get some miles on the car this year and engage on here a bit more...fingers crossed!

I bought new foam a few years ago but haven't got round to getting it fitted but when I spoke to a couple of automotive upholsterers they said its normally possible to add foam to the existing rather than replace.

Holy Mary mother of God! How much?! As the Glaswegians would say, "Get ti F**k!..." lol.

I think I'll take my chances with non OEM foam from a reputable independent upholsterer

Any recommendations would be most welcome.

I haven't found a exact match for my 1998 seats but have been trying to find some spare estoril leather to send off to get a colour match,


current drivers seat with Bespoke leathers estoril dye which is closer than others I have tried but not a pale blue as the oem colour
