Sheep skin company

Anyone dealt with these guys before? Looks like 680 euros ex.works for a full sheep skin kit from them, if they do the W116. How does that compare to other companies?

Never seen these guys before, but I've always wanted sheepskin covers for my 450 and in green which they offer as a colour choice.
I'll ask them if they cover the W116, and will report back as soon as I hear anything.

OK, I've heard back from them. I've specifically asked for W116, and even gave them a Wikipedia link to the model page to be certain they don't mistake it for a W123 (not so uncommon!).
They're asking 807EUR, taxes and shipping to Ireland included, for a full set of (in antracite, not green as queried...):

- front seats
- front armrest
- four headrests, removable
- rear bench
- rear armrest

Shipping is 15.97EUR, pre-tax cost is 678.15EUR, and VAT is 19% (which is wrong, as they should be charing 23% when selling to Ireland (i.e. the destination country rate))

So, what about you guys in Australia?  How does this compare to what's on the market there locally, price-wise?
