    I've got a weird thought. My apologies upfront if it seems silly.

    Once I get my Linea I was planning for some decent seat cover (read Pure Leather) but after going through this thread I understood that to fit seat cover mostly

    --> We need to stitch new seat cover over the existing one's which comes along with car OR
    --> We need to remove the one that comes with the car and stitch a new one for tight/excellent fitting

    For Pure Leather it cost a whopping Rs.30k. What I am thinking is, let's use the one which comes with Car, use it VERY carefully, if it spoils try do some professional cleaning, still it doesn't works out, remove the original seat cover and go for Pure Leather/Art Leather/PU Leather based on the budget.

    Also, I hope the one comes with the Car should be more comfortable than the after market one. I could see some folks are installing seat covers for their brand new cars after removing the original ones. Is it worth to do it? Please pour your suggestions.

    The seat cover fabric gets spoilt very easily.especially the door.

    I spent 25k on stanley leather very early and I think it's worth every penny as they still look new after 4.5 years. Again I would say, especially the doors.

    Front seats - Go for pure leather for areas that are in direct body contact, rest match it with suitable art leather and for back seats go for art leather matching your front seats ..I did it at a cost of 18.5k and looks superb
    check my Linea MJD ownership review you will see how it looks - http://www.teamfiat.co.in/linea-1-3-mjd/9666-hello-linea-4.html

    in my earlier GP, i didn't go for seat cover, was ashamed that i couldn't keep it clean (initially i was thinking on your method, get it cleaned blah blah) it didnt work that way atleast for me !

    @FastLove - I agree with you on door fabric. Seems you opted for pure Leather, are you taking any special care to maintain it? does it generate more heat?



    @Cubbie - I saw your Linea with Black and Red stitching, it looks fabulous. Full black goes well with your Linea. On seeing your note, I have to drop my weird thought :) and opt for seat cover.
