Default Which vendor for seat track/transmission rebuild?

C4: 1996 coupe, with base black power seats.

I'd like to send my driver's seat track out to a vendor for repair. I prefer not to buy one of their shelf-rebuilt ones.

Is there any specific vendor or vendors that anyone can recommend? I'm looking for quality workmanship, possible warranty, quick turnaround, etc...

I've read posts about some C4 owners getting their seat track rebuilt and when they received it back, the vendor spray painted it to make it look new, and painted over dirt/crumbs :-\

(on a separate, yet related note: after I get my seat track/tranny repaired, I would like to sell the entire seats and swap them for the 1996 sport seats. pref in GS or CE leather).

A few years back during Carlisle I traded my bad one plus a $C note for a rebuilt one with the correct gear shaft size. The rebuilt looked good as new and has worked flawlessly in the meantime. I remember Keen saying their replacement gears are much stouter than the originals.
