    Hi all,

    I am looking for blue cloth in order to restore the seats of my 3.0 CS. (2 rear seats and 2 front seats)
    The seats are in blue velour (2 shades of blue).

    I am now searching for the same cloth.

    Does anyone know where I can buy it in Europe (France, Germany, ...)

    I post a picture of the actual state and of the wanted result.

    Thanks to all

    Matthew,

    I 'think' I have the material from a set of 'early e9' seats from a European delivery car that I bought a few years ago (seats not car). If you want to pursue this further, please send me your direct email address via a 'Conversation', and I'll respond with some pictures of what I have. Shipping may be a bit costly as well.

    Gary

    Have you checked BMW? They just released the corduroy in black after many years so take a look to see if available. I paid around 85 dollars per meter.

    I have a few metres of the blue cloth that's on your side bolsters as my seats are made of it.

    Hi Guys,

    I have been looking for the two types of cloth you would need to restore these seats back to their original look but as far as I'm aware off non of them ar still available.

    Hi Keshav,

    Oh now I see just looking at the thread you can't see the link.

    Just had a look so if I understand this correctly they have the velours outside but not the cord like inserts?

    I'll write them a mail and ask for more info.

    Hi Philippe,
    Yes, you’ll have to write and or call them and ask for samples. As per the German forum, the blue cord cloth is correct but I haven’t seen the material personally.
    Let us all know what you discover.

    Keshav, I ordered my black vinyl from them a few weeks back, said in stock and payment went through and then I got a refund from them with the NLA email. Interestingly my refund was 3 Euros less than I paid and I sent an email and got no response. Perhaps a handling fee but nothing was handled. Thus, website not up to date, poor communication. Unless someone else has had a better experience, I would not order from them regardless.

    Hi, thanks for your answers!
    I've checked the Leebmann24.de website and sent them my question.
    I'am waiting for the answer....
    I'll do the same on the BMW classic parts website

    Gary, thanks for the proposition, but the shipping from USA to France has to be very expensive.
    I'm looking for a manufacturer/seller in Europe .

    I'll keep you informed of my quest!!

    best regards!

    Hi Matthieu,
    Might not be too expensive since Gary has the cloth only. The package can’t be big nor heavy......
    Please post your results and samples here for the rest of the group. Per German forum, cloth is correct but don’t make any orders until you have samples and prices.
    Regards
    Keshav

    This info supplied by Axel Coelln.

    The corduroy type material used in the middle of the seats is BMW part #
    51 92 1 817 333. Only available directly from BMW in Germany.

    The velour type material for the sides I matched with a sample I got from Döpper in Germany.
    http://www.doepper-oldtimerstoffe-gummiprofile.de
    Their part number is Blaue Wollen Stoff P 91 11 322.

    Hi Andrew

    When googling the above reference number I only land on US sites but nothing here in Europe. Am I doing something wrong?

    Take a look at http://www.lebaronbonney.com/.
    They do mostly American but I used their black mohair as a substitute for the black velour. Had the luxury of just going there and seeing what they had.

    Do not know why that part number is doing that.

    World Upholstery lists blue cloth seat kits available for the E9. I had thought of pursuing this option couple of years ago, but went all-in and found a craftsman to hand make new seat covers from genuine German, Marineblau leather. Looks great and nothing, I mean nothing, has that intoxicating fragrance like new leather in an old Coupe. Good luck with your project! Mike

    I agree with that. But I also think the velour option as in the OP's first post is really attractive. And you can't beat the cooler feeling in the summer and warmer feeling in the winter.
