Any decent upholstery shop will be able to match the color...

Phoenix Performance usually has stock seats for sale ~$300

I haven't found any V in junk yards.

The leather used in my CTS-v was from Eagle Ottawa, check out their website here. (http://www.eagleottawa.com/) Maybe they can tell you how to obtain a piece.

Good luck.

yeah the cars came with that little "leather" tag from the vendor; mine is long gone, but I assume that "Eagle Ottawa" was what it said?

The short answer is to dye the CTS leather to match your CTS-V. Call the folks at http://www.leathermagic.com/Pages/recolorkits.htm. I have the beige interior and was trying to match its color. Leathermagic knew exactly what I needed and provided me with a dye color that is impossible to distinguish from the CTS-V upholstry. After a year and 20K miles, there are no wear marks. It looks as good as the day it was installed.

Any decent upholstery shop will match your seats. I installed a regular CTS center console (you never have enough storage) with matching leather and (white --it's actually grey) stitching for about $120. Turned out great. They tried to build some armrests for the doors but they looked awful and I decided after putting them in place to forget it. So go for it, you'll enjoy it!
