Has anyone had their plaid seats repaired? My bolster is worn through from my ass and me liking to sit closer to the wheel. I’ve searched around and couldn’t find any replacement upper seat covers, has anyone replaced theirs? Oh and I got a quote of $250-$1,000 to repair my seat... yikes.

Who quoted that price? Pretty broad range for a quote.
A local place here in VA. it was done via email, not in person. I have a friend who repairs interiors but lives in NY where I’m from, he said he can hook me up if I visit this summer but that he would need to thread past the red stitching to have a solid Repair and that it unfortunately would be noticeable. I think a noticeable repair would be much better than what’s currently going on.

Yeah any repair would be better. Check with a regular upholstery shop for a price.

Bro, just find a local interior guy and have it fixed. No more than a couple hundred bucks. IDN who quoted u that price but its WAYYYYY off! Take the seat out and bring it them. Im sure they are adding seat removal to that bill whoever quoted u.

Since that's obviously a high wear area for you, just have them use a burlier cloth like Dyneema to replace that piece.
