It looks like it...go inside the glovebox lid and the label should give a trim code..if it's original ofcourse?

TBH they look great but the originals weren't beyond a bit of TLC to get to the same condition using one of the many proper leather repair kit suppliers about such as Furniture Clinic or Leather Repair Company, just 2 I feel are top quality, some just look like painted leather when done, their systems don't.
Price was very good, I paid that to have some Scimitar Coupe seats recovered in vinyl and cloth and they're about 2/3rds the size

I did look in to repairing them..but for the cost involved and then having someone do the repair (I'm not good at that sort of thing!) When the quote was given to recover by ultimatetrim it was a no brainer for me!! Thanks for your reply to the finished job!!

Hi! Quick question. Did you ever find a good source for your seat covers? I am looking to do the same thing.

There was a place from America who claimed they could match the original colour but when the samples arrived the colour was wrong and the fact that they would be exported and then possibly wrong coupled with the hastle of returning them if needed staying local was an easy option in the end. If you read through the listing there are a few names mentioned but if you want covers they are approx.£500 from Saab specialist for one seat I paid less than that for the two fronts. Good luck with what your searching for and enjoy the car once we can use them properly!
