Upholstery questions

Hey guys, I have a 2002 M5 with Caramel interior. I am trying to re-upholster two front seats, but I am getting pretty high quotes so far.
Do you know of any upholstery shops, options for buying leather or maybe forum guys in Southern California area that could be of help?
Maybe something you utilized that may help me.

Thanks

What do you consider a high quote? I had my e34 M5 seats done here in Moreno Valley last year and they are beautiful. They mimicked the factory pleats and all. The cost was $1350 for the two front seats and the rear headrests.Worth every penny in my opinion. Nothing large on these cars is a cheap fix. If you're looking for someone to do a $400 reupholster of a BMW seat in leather I doubt you'll find it. Too many panels involved.

The lowest one I found was $3k for redoing two front seats and re-dying two door panels. Would you mind sending me a contact number for the shop and maybe your name so I can tell them who referred me.
E34 seats looks sweet.
