Seat repair in my M3 before/after.

When I bought my m3, the driver's seat had some wear. I had it repaired. Here is the before/after. Looks like brand new!

I used a company called Fibrenew (franchise). The guy came out, washed it, made a die that matched. Oddly, the colors he made the die with for that gray were Black, white, and yellow gold. He applied the die, then sealed it up. He said this sealant is 40% stronger than what is on there stock and should be less likely to wear than before. He went through his phone and showed me some before and afters.... pretty amazing stuff. The cost of the repair was $145.

Turns out there's one in Scottsdale! I can have them work on it while I hang out with my brother and sister in law. Thanks for the review and heads up!

The repair looks good. Hate how nappa leather doesn't wear well. But it it soft

Just as an FYI for people looking to get this done, it has a 6 hour curing period.

Great option. I may have to look for something like this for the crappy leatherette on the 335.

I'm looking to get some repair work done too, mainly just to try and fix the creasing.

When they did the repair did they fix that also?

I'd suggest calling the expert and ask them or looking at before and afters to see if it addresses what you want specifically.
