Been wanting to leather my car seats as my kiddo has been tramping on it like nobody's business. Fabric just doesnt work.
So I went to a famous shop in Sin Min estate and was quoted an incredible S$5,600. My balls dropped at that instance and I left.

To all bros here, any other shops with good stitching and REASONABLE pricing?

if say your car is 56000, then 5600 is 10% of the amt.. siao man... whatever it is, i think 3000 sounds like the max for such things... (but dun tell me you drive a 56 passenger capacity bus lah..)

Precisely. 5.6K is a bit extreme. My max is 3K.

The price is ridiculous. Think they're trying to con you.
Try Jackspeed (http://www.jackspeedleather.com/) they're not the cheapest, but they're very good, and the prices are reasonable for the quality.

===================

Just a little bit of info. The "leather" seats we have r not real leather. Mostly all r just some PVC leather.

I just had my car groomed today & the guys confirmed that what we get is mostly PVC leather, but a very good quality type.

Only top end cars like Jaguar, BM, Merc etc can expect real leather. But leather is very hard to maintain properly & dont last in our climate.

Maybe for $5600 u wil get real leather? Then I guess its worth it.

At least better than paying >$2000 for PVC leather.

The verdict of my visits to all those shops stated.....

8 Cushion - 1.5K
Regency - 1 K
Jackspeed - 1123.50 (a bit higher coz of GST and maybe higher as they did not see my car)
H*p Li - 5,600

I asked for two tone leather. Only the thick Italian type. Front two seats for my car are Recaros.

At Jackspeed??? I was asked for $2200 for my mom's car, and thats with my expensive leather taste :p

jackspeed is good. I can't say for the other. I have it done there. Half leather at S$850 include steering wheel & center cushion. Still in good condition after more than 2 years.
