Received my new armrest cover on time from GAHH, can't complain about manufacturing time (1 day turnaround)!

The materials appear to be of high quality and sewn with skill. However...

First thing I noticed was the color, of both the leather and cording, was not an exact match. I expected the leather might be off a bit, but figured the plastic cording would be closer.

Second thing I noticed was that the cutouts at the armrest attachment points were not correct, presumably this is on purpose and left to the installer (see photo, original cover on top).

Unfortunately, cutting them out myself does not leave a nicely finished edge like the MB original part (which has cloth cording over the raw leather edges).
