Default Where to buy replacement arm rest cover?

I need to replace the worn leather on the armrest of my 08 GS450h. Can't seem to find anything on eBay or Google. Does anyone know somewhere that I can order this?

I'll take it in to a local upholstery shop if necessary, but would prefer to just order online and swap it myself.

Thanks for the links guys, upholstery shop is definitely cheaper. I left my car with Sonny's Upholstery, he is charging me $125 to replace the cover with matching leather. Would have been $75 if I wanted vinyl.

Here's a before pic...

Came out looking great. I think I'm going to have him redo my seats next week.

I see you're in AZ as am I. I understand the sun is brutal out here, but, do you have tint to block some of those rays coming in? Has the leather/vinyl ever been cleaned and conditioned? Were you sweating acid and lemon juice out of your forearm on the arm rest? lol

I have an 07 GS350 now and had an 06 GS300 and my leather or armrest looked nothing like that.

Now you need to get some Malco cleaner and a soft bristle scrub brush and go to town on those seats....then follow up with some 303 :-)
Arm rest looks great!

Those seats are not past help IMO. I'd spend a few hours on them before dropping big $$ for new ones. You would be amazed what the above mentioned products will do for you.

Lol. I just bought the car from my boss last week. He pretty much destroyed the interior. This was his "beater" car that he didn't make any effort to keep clean. The leather has never been cleaned or maintained in any way. Mechanically sound though.

I'll try that out, thanks for the tips. I bought Lexol cleaner and conditioner, which did not help. I just sprayed it on and wiped it off though.

$650. This would include the entire bottom portion of both seats, and the side bolsters of driver's side.

The cleaners work best by spraying it on (or wipe it on due to the holes in our seats), letting it sit for a minute, and then using a soft brush to scrub in circles, light circles. It doesn't take pressure, and you want the ends of the bristles doing the work. This will not be a 20 minute job. Spray, set, scrub, rinse/wipe with clean rag and warm water. Repeat. Then repeat again. When clean and dry follow up with the 303 or equivalent. Post up before and after pics
