As a comparison, I was able to do my cloth SRD interior, with new carpet, re-upholstered side panels and rear seat, custom order cloth SRD's, etc for $2000. I did all the installation. If you do the math that guy will be charging you over $1000 to do the upholstery work on the front seats. I was charged $800 to re-upholster the entire rear seat and the four side panels in the car. The side panels were actually the largest cost, due to the intricate work involved. Leather is more expensive though.. Ask him what a break down of the pricing is. You might do better to supply the seats for him to upholster. Or maybe even getting the seats used (since you will be removing the cloth anyway). Let me know if you have any questions. It took me over 8 months to complete my interior from start to finish but it was well worth it. The SRD's rock..

I'll have pics to post of what I did by next weekend in case you are interested...

I just visited a local upholstery shop to enquire about SRDs with custom leather and was quoted $2500 for two seats, leather work, rails, sliders, removal of the old seats and installation of the SRDs. He also said he
would throw in inflatable/deflatable lumbar support (Recaro factory option) and ///M stitching or a small 3-color leather stripe for each seat (a'la EvoIII std - pic) for nothing. $2500 out the door seems like a great deal to me considering the research I have done. Anyone else have input?
