Hi,
Does anyone have any spare alcantara for a Mica Blue Gran Finale?
I don’t actually need any right now but I’d like some as spare just case mine deteriorates.
Many thanks.

None you would be better asking for rocking horses poo.

I bid on a new old stock seat cover, mis typed and put £280 thought I had posted £28. Well I won that auction at £272 ( I declined the deal ) lol

Ah, that's the stuff that disintegrates in sunlight, its just a fabric tho' - it's not alcantara which is like a lightweight synthetic suede.
I reckon your best bet would be to find a nice, useable, black leather VS interior and store the fragile GF interior well out of the sunshine for resale!

I did think that if it does deteriorate I might look for VS leather interior but at the minute it’s still perfect.

As Andrew says above, your best bet is to get another set of seats. The ones out of the cars that predated the GF are a good alternative. The material in these still matches roughly the GF interior but they are much harder wearing and don't disintegrate before your eyes.

I've done that with mine and hidden the GF seats in a darkened room safely.
If you are after original material then you will be struggling. Door cars are a good option.
