I am not advertising, just curious if any of you bought this leather dash cover and how it worked out?

Forgot to mention that the ones they sell to the US are made for LHD

I'd be interested in something like that. My original Dash is in great shape but has two small cracks just starting. I'd like to protect it with something to prevent those from growing. I wonder how good it looks. It could look great it could look janky.

Hello, new to this forum. I just purchased an 87 m6 that has leather dash issues and was wondering if anyone has used the ebay leather cover. I am not concerned with removing the dash, as I replaced the dash on an e28 m5 and dont recall it being too bad. Thank you.

Lot of talk on various forums over the years about leather dash issues namely shrinkage. However almost all of them have had the dashes recovered by local upholstery shops which would seem to me to be the way to go and also make sure it was fitted good and proper

I am working on a project with this eBay dash cover.
I choosed to turn the dash into a Highline / L6 model as I am also changing the rest of the car from type 2 US to type 3 Highline.
You can however also buy a cover for type 2.
You can see the progress I am making on this forum. I am not ready yet but have done some work already.
It's not an easy job, please be aware.
