    Are the back of the front seat replaceable or you need to change the entire seat? My baby car seat was to near the seat and it left some mark inside the back of the seat.. When I will sell the car I will probably need to replace it.

    One of the after market sellers had some nice CF "back of the seat" replacements for sale...can't remember which vendor though.

    I think it's Tsportline, already saw that but it clips on the current back I think.

    The scratches are deep.. wrap won't do it. I guess I will ask at service center during my inspection.

    I had the same problem and the service center replaced the part with a factory original for $383, for both labor and parts.

    Our carbon fiber seat backs are in stock and ready to ship and made right here in California. The seat backs are easy to install and can be done in about 15 minutes.

    Hey jham! Do you have the part number? My SC is telling me that the part is not sold alone and it's part of the seat and quoting me for around 5k for a new seat... Part number on your receipt would help.. haha thanks

    That steering wheel is money. Are the seat backs real CF or wrapped with the faux stuff?

    No faux stuff here. Both steering wheel and seat backs are made in house using real dry carbon fiber

    Thanks for the reply. Looking forward to doing business with ya's.

    P.S. I take it we haven't found a way to retain the heating function in the steering wheel? Pretty much the only thing keeping me from getting that CF+suede hotness.
