    Leather Interiors

    Making a few tentative enquiries into getting a leather interior for my car - a mk4 astra 2.0L sport.

    Just wondering if anyone in Scotland has had their car retrimmed with a leather interior.

    If so, where did you get it done, how much did it cost (if you don't mind me asking), and would you recommend the place where you got it done?

    Obviously, the closer to Aberdeen, the better. Although I would be willing, and may well be forced, to travel.

    Cheers,

    Col

    £1095+VAT for a mk4 3 Door

    Full leather Retrim including headrests and door cards from transcal.

    Presumably any colour you like mind you
    Sounds ok to me but still quite steep

    That is very true, see alot of Transcal's work and cant fault them one bit. I've also seen work from other company's that charge less but start to show why its cheaper than most within weeks

    OK guys - cheers for that. I've never heard of "Transcal", but had a quick look at them and found their website - www.transcal.co.uk

    Doesn't seem to show much information about their work or their contact details for that matter. Anyone got any more information on the firm? I'm up in Aberdeen so can't exactly just pop in past.

    That £1100 plus VAT is a lot of money, but as has been said you get what you pay for. I'd still like to know if there are other fitters available in Scotland though - surely there must be others that people know of and have experienced??

    Dunsy - can I ask you how you found that price out - as I can't get past their first page on their website?
