My Leaf is due in in September and after test driving one my wife and I both agreed that leather is a must for us. The dealer we test drove at in Concord said they have a place that will do it. He said the most would be $1500 but couldn't give me a price - told me to talk to the place directly.
If you can get a forum discount or group buy together at this place in Hayward for $1000-$1100, given that the quality is spot-on, I would definitely be in - could give a deposit or something if it is needed.
Here are my questions for the next time you talk to the place:
-What is the name of the place?
-How long have they been in business / been doing leather installs?
-Do they handle leather for any car dealerships in that area? If so, which.
-How long do they warranty the work?
-Are their installs properly sewn to accommodate the air-bags (the other thread from the SoCal place says the shop carries insurance for this- http://www.mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.p ... 6&start=20
-You said that the price included the seats, the door inserts (presumably the arm-rest part) and the top of the center console. Why would they put leather on top of the center console? I assume it is just plastic up there, right? I wouldn't want leather in direct sunlight all the time like that.
-Are head-rests included in the pricing as part of "seats"?
-Can they add heated seats at an additional price if we wanted?
-If they also do tinting can they provide a discounted rate if we do it in conjunction with the leather work?
