Releather or new seats?

I'm sick and tired of looking at this in my car. The previous owner ripped it and it is gradually getting worse. So what do you guys think I should do? Buy new seats or get it releathered? Passenger seat leather is still good

Wow! Looks like he got hungry and gnawed at it.

I guess cost would play a part in he decision if it was me. I got a pair of Corbeaus for a fraction of the price of a leather redo.

Around here where I'm at NYC .... The price to get that fixed would be around $100-150. I know I got mine fixed in the same spot for $100 on my v6.
