They are the same

If the leather kit for the S works I would love to jump on the deal. Help please.
The seats in the S and SV are the same (and covered with cloth) except for the power hardware that you've already mentioned. The SL and LE use the same leather-trimmed seats.
So what is the deal (price)? Have you compared the asking price with the price for having an authorized Katzkin dealer install the same thing?
I'm just saying.....I can't tell you how many times I've seen something happen when it comes to aftermarket parts. The "something" goes like this: I hear about someone being offered a "great deal" for some part or kit that may or may not fit their car. When I have suggested that the potential buyer get a price quote/bid from someone else for the same thing/correct thing, almost invariably the story ends up with the "great deal" being revealed as an "average deal" (at least when my advise is taken).
I've seen the aftermarket leather seats (the brand you mentioned and others) sold at a wide range of prices. The main cost is always for the installation of the trim. That's why I suggest you shop around. If this advise means nothing to you, well, at least it was free.
