you can get the factory seats re-trimmed, with padding, they will look like ba xr6 seats if u wish to go that far, just depends on what u are willing to spend

You're best off asking an actual upholstery place what it will cost you.

I don't know about embroided Tickford wings - I've never seen them for sale. I'm sure any embroidery place could make some up for the right price.

the problem with embroidery and leater is that the stitching in the embroidery tends to pucker the leather
