My Ride: 318ci
Cloth seat "piping"

Hello all,

New around here so I hope I've put this topic in the right place. I've just picked myself a 318ci (I know... but it was an upgrade from my e36 316i compact... slowly working my way up) and I've noticed the vinyl(?) coating on the cloth seat piping is prone to wearing off. I couldn't for the life of me find anyone mentioning this anywhere, so has anyone tried to fix this issue or able to point me in the right direction?

Cheers!

A local upholstery shop should be able to replace the piping.
