Driver's seat leather cover replacement......

I recently ordered a new driver's seat bottom cover....the exact factory match from www.theseatshop.com out of Texas. I received the seat cover in the mail....it was just the bottom section because previous owner must have slid out every time and it wore a hole in the side bolster. I paid $200 for the cover. when I received it it was an EXACT match...color, size, shape, perforated holes etc. I paid a local seat shop near me $60 to replace it.

I know that a lot of people have the same issue with their driver's seat and are skeptical to replace it out of fear of color match, fit, etc.... I just want to reassure you all that it was the BEST!!! money I have spent on my vehicle. It makes the interior look new again.

I also heard that www.partsguyed.com can also get the seat cover for a good $$$$.

Ill post pisc soon.

I need to do mine before long, it's getting a little worn. Be sure to let us know how hard it was and shoot some pictures. I'll learn from your mistakes !!

Very good to know since mine looks worn as well. It irritates me everytime I clean the interior.

Does the leather feel as thick or durable as the OEM? Does it feel better or worse?

Hey if you don't mind me asking where did you pick up that steering wheel cover? I really want to do mine! Can the upholstery shop replace that as well?

Thanks!

I just received one of their leather armrest covers from theseatshop...matches perfectly and very high quality. Any advice on how to replace the armrest cover? Does the old one just pull off, or do you have to remove the armrest? Thanks for any help...mechanical dummy here!!

Is this thread dead (I need to replace seat cover and armrest)

Can you post some pics. Also, did you get work done in Texas? I live in Austin but I travel all over Texas. Any feedback is appreciated.
