My Coupe has fabric seats and the driver's side bolster is threadbare in one place. Just wondering how easy it is to replace or repair the seat fabric? Was thinking of getting a used seat and swapping, but is there a better way?

Cheers

Yes I think swapping out would be just as quick as getting fixed
And most people look for leather seats in my experience so you should be able to source one
Of course driving seat is always the one with the most wear in them for obvious reasons

Unless of course you get one off a back seat driver!

Hey at least I find my own jokes funny hehe

What year VIS is yours Toby as the design on the cloth differs on the late models?

Mine is a 1999, W reg. Yes the pattern is different to my 1997 NA.

Cheers for the input thus far.

In the next couple of weeks I need to sort through and thin out the interior collection I'v accumulated over the past 10 years, I know I have some late VIS chairs so I'll give you a shout Toby.

Might they be the chairs from my old Vis?
I swapped them for leather,and Samsite I think it was had the cloth set off me, then he swapped them with you, Joe?

The Alfa has been sold, I drove it too quickly.
Now have a £160 Citroen Pluriel as a daily and a Mgtf on blocks as the next project.
Hope all is well with you, Toby n Joe smile

Thanks Joe. Keep me posted. The other seats look fine, so if the drivers is in good fettle, I'll grab it.

Sorry to hear the Alfa has gone Huw. I'm still keen to own a Busso at some point.... But I've been tempted by a 360Z recently... 90% of the sound, with Nissan reliability. Apparently they are good on fuel for a 3.5 L V6 too.

Hope you're good.
