Scuderia Replacement Seat Covers

Anyone ever ordered replacement Alcantara seat covers for a Scuderia / 16M?

Been working hard trying to get some of the rougher feeling ares to smooth out, but might just get new covers if they are reasonable. Would be interesting to see if Ferrari would sell 458 Italia Alcantara covers? Might look really good on a 16M?

I have seen some 16M's with 458 seat design features - but in the heat of the summer with the top off that mesh is nice.

Where have you seen these cars? Would like to see some photos if you have them. Was thinking about doing the leather bolsters with the Alcantara centers. The cavalino horse in stitching alone is $1100 per pair, plus the stripe down the middle, another $1000 plus the covers. Guessing 4k + for new seat cushions.

Will ask Ron Tonkin if Ferrari will allow these to be ordered just for shits and giggles.

I have worked my butt off on the visors, and have finally gotten the rough parts smooth. Found a good article on Google about using 800 grit sandpaper and wetsanding any fuzz balls that occur after brushing with a suede brush. It works!

Now am probably going to try some diluted Rit Dye to see if I can make the color perfect.

This one is mild - recall one for sale at Ferrari of BH that was white leather with red alcantara.

Yes I see they have the spot down the middle, but not the exact pattern of the 458 race seat inserts.
