Going to be tan GLX leather....I'm getting the whole interior and selling what I dont use...I'm not sure if I'm going to put in the tan carpet....I'm going to lay it over the black and see how it looks...then go from there....Then I'm going to try to find some cabrio door cards and use the tan leather in my door cards.

pretty much cause I didnt want to pay $700.....instead I got the whole interior instead of just seats....ABT springs...Bilstein race struts, leather wheel, and a VR short shifter for a little more than half that. See why I waited 3 years now?

BTW it was 3 years of shopping

I see now http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif It took me a year before I found a flawless set of black leather seats and door panels.

rear cabrio panels are different, it would be best to just have an upholstery shop whip up some tan center panels for ya.

Thanks guys....and can't I take the leather pieces from a cabrio? I know the whole door card is different in the back tho...How much would it be to have an upholstery shop do it?

Re: (NaturalMinima)

yeah it took me about 9 yrs before i ever had leather in any of my dubs, ........ you bastad
thats going to look very good! http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif i would just keep your black door cards and get the material part done in tan leather (same with the rear) then just use the lower knee bar and consol from cabrio , that with the tan seats would be very nice and was one of the ideas i wanted to do in my car.....that ish will look hot!!

Re: (lehr leistung)

I installed GLX leather in my jetta about 2 weeks ago. SOOOO much better than stock GL clothe. I lucked out and got a mint set of grey leather which matches my car perfectly. Are you going to be doing anything else to the interior or keeping it black?

Re: It's coming!! DA DA DA DA!!! (Blown Wide Open)

Congrats, and like others have said, you are a patient man. Best of luck on the installation. It isn't that hard to do just the seats, but I have no idea what it's like to do the carpeting. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
