    Hi,

    I know this must have been posted in this thread or forum many times but many new dealers might have come up from then to now. So thought of re-asking the question below:

    1. Suggestion on some good/reliable Art-Leather seat cover dealers in Chennai.
    2. Jeewajee quoted his price at 8.5k for the seat covers. Is this normal? I called up couple of other vendors too and they quoted only ~6k. But I have heard that Jeewajee do a decent job.
    3. Should I also cover up the hand rest on all doors? Will this mean the door assembly from inside will be dismantled? Is it worth going for it? Jeewajee charges extra for these.
    4. Benefits of Artificial and Original Leather.
    5. Any dealer in Chennai for Karlsson Leather?

    Thanks for help!

    Currently There is no dealer for Stanley and Karlsson.But Haute Car zone is handling Stanley enquires as i heard from someone.
    If you are going for art leather,i would suggest you Xenos opp to Nadanam.
    There you can get Autoform and Dolphin seat covers in good price.Both has tight fit models and suits linea well.
    you can refer my name Karthik to the manager Mr.Subramanian to get some discounts.

    I am also looking for Leather seats either Stanley or karlsson.
    if it's not possible in Chennai then i might travel to B'lore to gift my car a Pure leather seats from Karlsson very soon:)

    Thanks Karthik. Any idea about the worksmanship in Xenos, Nandanam?

    Hi,

    Can anyone comment on the workmanship of Xenos? I am planning to get Autoform UImpress done on my Linea, but a bit skeptical since not many people here have mentioned this dealer for seat covers in this forum.

    Nice finish. Looking fabulous.

    Is the seat cover of PU leather?

    Nice work, looks neat. The most interesting was to see work done over hand break grip.

    Yup its PU (and not PVC). Its 2mm thick. Marvin get all its leather from Mayura Uniquoters (Manufacturers and Exporters to a huge clientele). The leather actually gives out lemon-grass smell instead of the Horrible Rubbery Smell I use to get from my G-Sports (No offense meant to any G-Sport Owner).
