    There are several threads on leather but it seems no one has used Alea. I've had Classic Soft Trim on a few of my cars/trucks but a highly recommended installer suggested Alea.

    Leather appears much heavier (thickness) than CST or OEM. I am very happy with the fit and finish.

    Just getting started
    Are these 'Seat Covers' that you did yourself or a complete tear down and removal of the factory fabric and then remount the leather?

    They look really good. Do you know which colors you have?

    The colors are ebony and silver. The contrast stitching is gray.

    In the Alea catalog, silver was listed as the recommended oem color. I don't think the two-tone was extra but the perforated centers and contrast stitching were. The arm rests were in the base price.
