Is it due to the amount of material needed for the Skoda as compared to the Baleno. I am not very sure on this but 3M outlets works this way for the Nomad mats where the pricing is different for different cars.

I guess, the work for a sedan would be more compared to a hatch. For example sedan would have rear arm rests which would lead to more material and labor consumption.

Should it cost 1.5K more? I don't have an answer.

Visited them yesterday, but the shop was closed. Tried calling Shivkumar's phone but it was out of coverage area. I guess it was not the day for my car to get dressed.

He's on Dussera vacation I think hence no coverage on his phone also.

Wait for him to return over the weekend I guess.

Yeah, I enquired from the nearby provisional store. No problem at all, everyone deserve a break and holidays.

Question Re: Seat Covers: Imperial INC (Bangalore)

I would like to get seat covers for my TUV3OO. Would they be able to add little lumbar and under-thigh support for the second row seat?

you will need to convince shivkumar to do the same as his philosophy is to keep it as close to original as possible. I got my seat covers done at Imperial and they did a great job. Details here (Red Dwarf – My 2016 Mahindra TUV300 T8 Manual)

I am thinking to go in for the PU or Luster Seat Covers. My car currently has Fabric on it. Before I jump in on this option I am looking for feedback from others who have gone down this path to share info on how much heat does this PU Leather generate? Does it make a huge difference as compared to Fabric?

Apart from the options in materials that Imperial has, does it make sense to look at any other type of artificial leather if one is concerned about the heat generated? Please advise.

PU / Art Leather heats up the most and Fabric heats the least.
There is no significant difference in heating between various Art Leather materials/ brands. They all heat up pretty badly in our hot weather conditions.
Alcantara & Genuine Leather falls somewhere in between Fabric and Art Leather.
If cool seats are your priority then nothing beats Fabric seat covers.

Below is the descending order wrt coolness of seat covers (what I have gathered from our forum)

Fabric > Alcantara > Genuine Leather > Art/PU Leather

Visited them last week. Must say that Mr. Shiva knows about his job. There are basically 5 kind of material on offer i.e. Art Leather, PU, Nappa, Montana and Real leather.

I wanted something in Beige with mix of perforation at contact areas. He informed that perforation can be achieved only in real leather which is out of my budget. Mixing of two different material is not possible as beige of real leather does not match with any other material, it can be done in black color though. Kind of disappointed with not being able to get what I desired for.

Otherwise, so one linea getting dressed up in Nappa. It looked awesome.

I got the seats on my 10 year old Swift done at Imperial last December and can vouch for the quality of work done by Mr. Shivakumar and his team. He's very skilled with a needle and stitched the steering cover himself.
The seats were done in art leather and they took the trouble to make sure that there was extra foam in the areas that needed them. Although my stock seat covers were not torn, the foam under them was in bad shape and the seat frame had cut through in some areas.

I did my seat work at Imperial 3 weeks back. Very satisfied with their quality ! I opted for Montana art leather, for my Honda City 2017. Including door insets, I got it done for 16K. It took only 2 hours, their process is very optimized. I will post some photos later, once I transfer them from my mobile to the laptop.
