A++++ worked great.

Paul M. - Sunday, March 27, 2022

I placed an order, based upon recommendations from other users on a BMW Z Club website. My vehicle is a 1996 BMW Z3. I contacted Ridies and was sent sample patches of the colors of leather I was interested in. I placed an order and had custom embroidery done as well. I received the exact seat covers that I wanted, brought them to a local BMW service center to have them installed. These are not cheap covers, but are fitted to the seat, and installed by a professional. They look absolutely great and I get compliments on them all the time. If I was ever in the mark again, I would certainly contact Ridies.

I can't believe how beautiful this leather is! The covers fit perfectly. The stitching, the color, the condition, all of it is better than expected for the price, which I found more than reasonable. I also bought a matching hide to cover my door panels and that worked out great! If you're wondering if this can be as good as it looks, its better! And no, I'm not friends with anyone who works there. I'm just a car guy who is incredibly happy with the transformation it gave my little Z3. Thank you!

Smooth, trouble free transaction. Fast shipping. Thanks

Quick turn around. Thanks.

Chris M. - Thursday, January 27, 2022

Ordered Jan 16. Delivered Jan 27. From order to mfg in Karachi to receiving in US in 11 days? First look everything looks great. Can’t get toilet paper but special order leather seat covers is not a problem. lol. I made a mistake on my order and the seat color and insert color were backwards from what I thought I was ordering but it looks so much better than the OEM. Got lucky.

Robert A. - Sunday, September 5, 2021

The seats look fantastic! Item exactly as described. I had a professional replace the leather on the stock seats with the new upholstery. He reported that it was a simple swap out (I am sure it would have been harder for me, as I've never done upholstery. I have noticed that the old seats were a bit slipperier. The new leather makes it a bit more difficult to slide into the seat, but this is not a complaint. It makes the seat feel more "new". Stitching and materials are top-notch. My only (small) criticism is that it was explained that for my car (2000 BMW Z3), I should consider the perforation option to maximize the effectiveness of the seat heaters. However, the stock seat heater coils were sewn into the original seat leather. They had to be taken out in order to install new leather. So, I lost the seat heater capability. That is fine - but I would not have paid the extra $50 for perforated seats had I known. All in all, a VERY happy customer! Thanks!! (and expedited shipping came amazingly fast)!

I was hesitant to purchase leather seat covers that would be manufactured in Pakistan. I bought them in spite of the hesitancy, and I am delighted with the way they fit and look. Good job!
