    Need Advice on Local upholstery shops for Leather seats

    Hello Gang!

    I just signed up for this forum and am pleased to see a lot of names that I recognize. I also belong to some international forums, but this project is one that I want to tackle locally, so I am here asking for help. I look forward to using this forum more in the future.

    I am trying to have a set of Recaro SRD's upholstered in black leather for my 1991 M3. I want to use someone that is very detail oriented and in close enough proximity to Northern VA that I do not have to ship the seats anywhere.

    Anita Patten had given me a business card for a gentleman in Leesburg that had done some really nice work for her. I have unfortuneately lost the card.

    If anybody can help, please PM me or email me @ willyalutz@aol.com

    Thank you!

    Willy Lutz

    I would recommend Metro leather in Sterling - Just behind BMW of Sterling. I do like their service and work.

    Contact Roland - 703.929.1936

    I checked with Metro Leather today. They only do repair work, not full upholstery. Roland was kind enough to give me a few leads for area auto upholsterers. I will post more for informational purposes when I get something solid together.

    I am still searching out shops if anybody knows of a good auto upholstery shop that specializes in leather. I want to canvas the area and know all my options before I spend $$$$.

    Thanks!

    Hmmm - ok I didn't know they didn't do the whole thing. Best of luck! Will be good to know what you find.

    I've used Seatco in Bailey's Crossroads (talk to Neil 703-931-4800) and Lim's in Tysons Corners 703-893-7373.

    BMWCS3,

    Do you have a preference between the 2 shops that you have informed me of? What were your experiences? What type of work did you have done?

    Thanks!

    Further to the last thread posted by Willy Lutz, wonder if anyone can recommend any shops in the Central Maryland area including Howard, Anne Arundel, Baltimore counties? I have a 1989 635 CSI with "comfort seats" which need re-stuffing. I'd opt to replace the comfort seats with Recaro sport seats but I'm thinking the costs may be prohibitive. Thanks for any tips.

    I have used Jaime Zarate in Rockville with great results. He works on his own and is very good. I saw a set of Recaros he had redone and they looked excellent. 703-589-6234.

    Recovering BMW seats

    Thanks very much; I'll try to "Google" Mr. Zarate to find his exact location.
