I have 1986 900 SPG with the same leather seat covers. The previous owners had not taken care of the leathers and were quite weathered. I used a product called "Lexol". It came in aerosol and liquid. You will want to rub this product in, so go with the liquid. It was amazing how much Lesol the leather seats absorbs. I applied the whole bottle (4 applications) until the seats would not take any more. I had the front cushions re-stitched and they look and feel great.
If you really want to purchase replacements just go to E-Bay or Google and use their "Search" utility and describe what you want. I found new and used leathers, some quite expensive. Remember, unless you install yourself, an upholstery shop will charge you approx. $100.00 per hour. I chose this route with one of my other Saabs and spent approx. $300.00 (front & back).
Unless your seat covers are really damaged I would spend $10.00 on a bottle of Lexol and use some "elbow grease" and bring them back to life....Good Luck
