Re: The Seat Cover Thread- Everything you want to enquire ab Always wanted to have twin pockets on the back of the front seats - got 1 with Zip & the other usual open. Have this bad habit of stuffing things[/*:m:10v509y7] Never liked the Black portion protruding when Rear Armrest is pulled down. Its now covered when the Armrest is not pulled down & will remain covered when the Armrest is pulled down !

The material is thick, soft & with matt (non-shiny) looks which I so wanted. The inside of the material is like cloth-type so does not become very hot in sunny conditions. The inside of the 2 pockets on backside of front seats are also made of the same material & not usual cloth as I've seen inside-clothes always tends to tear (the way it wears in Wallets if the inside cloth also is not genuine leather). Also, I got Neck-pillows covered with the same material in Black, will post the pics soon. These Seat Covers are fitted on the OEM covers without disturbing it a bit. The other option (which by default he was about to apply before I stopped him) is to un-stich the OEM covers from the central horizontal stich-lines & to insert a small rod (actually thick wire) & then clip that with the rod inside the seat. This would have given the seat an excellent rich & tight fit with small bulges between stich-lines. But was not comfortable with disturbing OEM seats (if it was Stanely, its another matter). Hence, there are minor Fit N Finish which I'll try to remove by some "Dadima Ke Nuskhe" , if I can find any. The other option I had was AutoForm India. Liked their art leather material but there was no provision of customising various things as mentioned above, hence went with this fully-customisable solution. It costed me Rs. 4000/- + Rs. 200 for Neck-pillows covers. Thats why I mentioned that they are more "Fashion Street" kinds rather than "Inorbit Mall" kinds. For non-Mumbaikars, Fashion Street is a major Road-side market near Churchgate/ Fort for Casual Cotton clothes. Yes, for Colour on Rear Armrest I was also in dillemma to go for beige or black & it was a decision on the spur of the moment. I saw someone’s rear armrest in black & was looking alright. The other thing is children will definitely spoil rear armrest & beige would get dirty soon. But in hindsight, I think it was better had I gone for beige there as well. Rear Armrest was the top-most thing for which I looked many many seat covers & options on the web. Somehow I liked this Zipped solution instead of the usual one hence went with it. I first asked him to do the door trims also @ Rs. 1000/- extra & then cancelled it as was not comfortable him opening the Door panels etc. Had it been Stanely, would have gone for it + Gear Knob + Hand Brakes like yours. Anyway, my mood (or the thought processes) changes with time. Amongst the premium or Stanely covers, I liked them on some Linea’s & for a while it tempted me also big time. But that time I was not in mood of spending Rs. 25K though every rupee spent there is worth it.
