Grey Russel Seats

Anyone ordered Grey seats for an 05 LT from Russel?
I have emailed them asking if they make grey seats but received no reply. Thought it might be faster to ask this group.

I would get a large sample and look at it in daylight to make SURE it matches your vinyl trim components. Grey is VERY difficult to match exactly. Next to red it is the hardest to match. Luckily there are not too many red seats out there!

Our supplier had 7 different stock shades of grey for us to pick from to try to match the 05 vinyl - and to my eye none of them were even in the ballpark. We finally decided to have our stock custom dyed to match BMW's OEM "Greige" exactly.

I guess it depends how picky you are.

If you would like a sample PM me.

Jack,

I have ordered grey seats from Russell (not received them yet). You'd better call them and ask for Katy. She will send the samples for you. At least I got them and the one I picked goes pretty well with the rest of the trim which will be the minority after I get my both seats and backrests done. So if (and when) there is a difference, it will not be the end of the world.
