Re-upholster, how much material needed?

Getting a quote to have my seats and door cards re-trimmed. Trying to order the right amount of cloth because its pretty expensive. The website says that 4 meters should be alright. ... 18062.html

Is that 4m to retrim the centre parts of the seats and not the bolsters, or the whole seat?

Sorry can help with how much you need but don’t forget the bolsters are a different design?

They do sell ready made seat covers but not sure if that works out cheaper but they don’t seem to sell the rear seat cover? ... 405-g.html ... 901-g.html
