When I bought my GS I replaced my interior with a leather interior purchased through CL from LeatherSeats.com. I ended up not using the armrest and the seatback pockets and would be willing to part with them if someone wants to replace either. The purchase I made was genuine leather (actually a higher grade leather than OEM). I have kept it in the back of my closet for no good reason other than "in case I need it down the road". It is not a "perfect" color match but no one has noticed a difference in the 5+ years since I installed it.

and you did.... wasnt trying to down you. just straighten up the wrinkled foam and you should be good to go. IMHO i would go with a flatter foam btw so it doesnt move around underneath the vinyl

If anyone else does one, you can leave the factory leather on. I just bought some 1/4" staples (I already had a T50 staple gun) and went over the factory cover. The real leather ones on ebay will not have the crease in them when you get them.
Same thing here. I re-wrapped mine a few months ago. They only left at most a 1/4" of material to work with once stretched over the armrest. Some spots had maybe an 1/8" to secure. Used 1/4" staples and hot glue. Just had to be a little more patient. Foam underneath was fine as I got to it before my elbow started burrowing in. Vinyl was folded in half and shipped in a tiny-*** bubble envelope. Took a few days for the crease to work itself out. Matches well to the rest of the console though.

Great job man. I was wondering if those on eBay would 1. Fit Well enough and 2. Match OEM Color. Thanks for sharing the info and the pics.

^ hmm, not sure about that one. Price seems too good to be true. I just bought on eBay and the few decent ones i looked at were all 40-50 bucks. Gotta put mine on soon also.
