Why have you changed the stitching pattern ?

I mean..what made you change the stitching from that Audi cross-hatch style to what you have now ?

I wanted a buckskin mottled leather look with an elaborate stitching as attached.

I didn’t like that look he did was too busy.

I am also not liking the color it’s too orange and not like the sample!

I went to see the completed interior in person, I don’t want to be that customer, but after a 3 year build I feel the color of the seat is wrong. It turns out after some investigation, the sample approved was out of stock at the tannery and they sent the closest they had without consultation. 2 Hyde’s wasted however we’re going to have to do it over. I grappled with the decision but it’s thevright thing to do!

Good on you, I went through the same and ended up re-doing the door panels and dash center console for the 3rd time myself, always a tough call :lol:
