I dont really remember di1in. He showed me photos of various stuff he had done over the years and I chose mine. He does a really good job, as my Seat covers are still just awesome, even my rides showing its age!

6K for the job sound good.
I remember spending a 4.5K, 7yrs back in Belgaum.
You should have got the same pattern (black and red) done for your gear also. It makes a huge difference. Not late to make the decision.
What is the possibility of getting it done for door panels?

And yeah please share the contact which might come handy someday as I can never afford leathers.

Ya, for 6k that was good.
Regarding door and other he said it needed to be done in real leather,and also said that the door panels might rattle after after sometime ,so didn't go for it .
For the gear, in ritz we have a rubber kinda of stuff, not sure it can be changed or not.

I got the same response many years back. I hoped things would have changed. Wonder why they could do with leather but not faux leather.

Rattling, Don't think so if its a good job. They open the panels all the time to fix auotcop, speakers ...

Yeah i know its rubber but if you work around it the customization will be complete. IMHO

I noticed the difference in my Santro before and after.

I went to Imperial today for seat covers for my car. I went for Black and Silver mix of Luster type leather, along with back armrest and steering grip. They quoted 7k for the whole job. Will update pictures when I get it done.

I had got my seats done from here last year and am very satisfied with the work that they have done. They had provided me with lots of design options and were very helpful when it came to making recommendations on colour combinations. I finally went in for a design I had spotted somewhere on the web (or was it here?) and they did it exactly as I wanted. I have attached pictures of the same. I believe I paid 6k or so at that time. I had done the seats and steering wheel. I would strongly recommend them for the quality of their work and friendliness. You are guaranteed to come away feeling that you have got an excellent deal.

After seeing the quality of work done on my Punto, my friend also decided to get his Honda Brio 'Imperialized' earlier this year. He wanted a sporty black and red combination for his black car. Again they were very helpful when it came to helping my friend pick the right shade combination and design.

This was the first Brio that they were doing and while they did a very good job with the seat covers and stiching, the fitting back of the rear seat (the seat, not the covers) wasnt a 100%. We asked them about it but we were told that it was fit back properly. Fortunately the car was given for service the next day and the service centre guys did the necessary tightening on the rear seats.

Overall my friend was very happy with the work done and had it not been for the minor issue of the not properly tightened rear seat, it wouldve been another round of 10s.

What kind of materials are these covers? I have an Autoform which I got it last year but it sweats a lot when driving during the day or humid nights even with a/c, are these covers breathable?

At imperial leathers.
My car lacks back and under thigh support which resulted in severe pain in my lower back. Called shiv and he said he can provide a custom seat cover with extra cushioning for back.
There is a waiting period of almost 12 days.
