In his feedback he has sold a lot of interiors, so I doubt his story of finding it while looking for one for his car.

Offer £40 and then it might be worth a try. But the door cards are well and truly sh***ed!

Thanks i was thinking the same, and have seen better but the price of that one was like £260!!

i have spoke with furnitureclinic guys today and they have quoted me £275 for them to restore this interior including the door cards which is not bad considering the end products look like lol

but the guy said if your looking for cheaper option is to it myself and by the package off them £105 for the kit but then id have to do the work lol

cheers guys :)

consider as well whether or not the donor vehicle is same spec as yours, with special consideration to the windows. if the donor vehicle had all 4 leccy windows and you only have front elec (or visa-versa) you are going to have to switch the leather inserts from the donor cards to your door cards. not impossible but a little more work. does make life a little easier as you've no need to worry about the door cards from donor vehicle.

I would say that one would need far too much work, front seats would want a lot of work preferably recovering, rears are okay though.

keep your eye out for better, the red interior isnt as rare as you may think.

If the red inserts are ok you can just swap those over to your existing door cards which would save needing to get the other damage on the door cards repaired, but the drivers seat looks pretty much past it.

Around 150/200 including door cards, the older ones have the Alfa stitching, try and get the Momo which has a small stamp on the headrest.
BTW easy to fit.
