So, SOMEHOW, someone punctured to door arm rest leather and I want to know how much it would be to replace this part. It can't be too much. Thanks guys!

=It can't be too much.

Actually, it can be. Don't have any good sources for you, but I'm curious to know what resources people might have for you!

I expect somewhere around the $150 mark. I mean I can go to the dealer but that's tomorrow and I really want to know if anyone has resources to find out. Thanks so much.

Give, "Luke", at Lindsay Cadillac a call. As far as I've seen, he has the best prices for oem parts, and is an advertiser on this forum.

Cleveland Pick a Part is good if you don't mind used parts. I've bought several parts for them, always a good experience.

Yeah Cadillac can go **** themselves. The whole panel is one ****ing part except for a few little pieces so it would cost $550+tax and $100 installion. $700+ to fix that little spot. Whoever designed that door panel needs to be shot. Idiots

And how much would that cost at Mercedes, BMW or Lexus?

You might be able to find the panel cheaper from a junk yard (assuming there is a wrecked V with an intact door). I've had decent luck finding parts from http://www.car-part.com/. That site lets you email junkyards around the country for parts. I've used it to get parts for my '01 Aurora beater (although unlike the V there are 100's of Auroras in junkyards now).
