    Brand New Grey 500E GAT Front Seat Skins

    I have a set of brand new front seat skins from GAT in California.

    Still in the GAT box

    They are grey.

    Two uppers, two lowers and two headrests.

    As you will see in the pictures they are a lighter shade of grey than factory.

    Current price from GAT is $895, mine are $700 shipped to the lower 48 states

    Here is a link to the GAT page

    Re: Brand New Grey 500E GAT Front Seat Skins

    When I bought new skins in grey for my C126, they were the same color difference due to the wear and fading over 24 years. But after they were fitted, there was nothing to notice optically other than fresh new leather seats. The match was spot on with the other leather bits in the car. I also kept the leather from the recover of my armrest, and the underside skin never got used and was in perfect condition. The comparison of new GAHH skins to 24 year old leather not exposed to wear and sun was very minimal.

    What is the difference between these and the ones from GAHH?

    Brand New Grey 500E GAT Front Seat Skins

    None, the hand assembled quality and the leather is the same as MB. I got mine where i did because I was referred to them by another purchaser. I was new, and have many who have used both places with same success.
