Interior Trim Materials
GAHH offers interior components for luxury imported cars including Mercedes, Lexus, Jaguar, Porsche, Rolls-Royce and BMW along with selected interior parts for certain models of Ferrari, Acura, Cadillac, Lamborghini, Land Rover, Maserati and SAAB. All parts are made from carefully crafted patterns which enable our artisans to exactly duplicate the original part rendering. It is virtually indistinguishable from the factory item.
This theme of originality is carried through GAHH's choice of materials for use in production of interior parts. GAHH uses original materials from the OEM vendor, or, if it is no longer available, GAHH uses the highest quality substitute material offered. Most materials are imported from Europe despite the fact that less expensive and almost original quality materials are available from domestic or third world sources.
This passion for correctness in design and authenticity of materials ensures car owner that the car's interior will be as new.
