Newton commercial.


That's the only place to get the right specification trim for a Cooper 'S' - but not cheap.

Looked at Newton at bingley hall and couldn’t see why they charge so much. Don’t get me wrong, the products looked nice quality but I also went to optimize automotive stand while I was there and I thought there products where on par if not better for cheaper prices.
I haven’t ordered off either but looking to order some door cards and I will be using optimize.
Just my opinion off course

Had mine done at Optimise Automotive, Stoke-on-Trent. Very helpful, looked for ages for a like-for-like material, in the same colour and style. 

I'm very happy with the finish, fitment, colour and price.

I bought a Newton carpet set for my mk3 and I was not impressed with the colour and pile for the amount it cost and I even had to cut my own gear stick hole out.

Also a friend had a replacement seat base that did not remotely match the original leather effect grain and it stuck out a mile next to the originals so I would advise a full set from whoever you go with.

That Optimise trim looks great by the way.

I had a complete custom interior from Optimise Automotive, fantastic quality of work and not as expensive as you’d think great people to deal with also.

I had to look for a trusted manufacturer for my seat covers and Optimise was my choice, outstanding quality of work. I'm purchasing everything from them for my interior except for the moulded carpets which have come from Newton:

I have not been able to log in for quite some time. I ordered a complete set from Oprimise. Thank you for your help!
