Center Armrest Cording Cracked

The cording around my center armrest cover (1992 300E) is broken with chunks missing (see photo). The leather is still okay.

Has anyone had an upholstery shop replace just the cording? If so, how were the results?

I have also found replacement covers from World Upholstery for $98.00 (1 month wait) and SL Accessories for $105.00 (2 day wait, price in catalog is wrong).

Has anyone purchased armrest covers from these companies, and if so how was the quality, color-matching, and fit? My current cover seems quite precisely made, with plastic clips sewn on to attach the rear, and unless a replacement is "perfect" I'd rather just hack off the rest of the cording and live with it.
