Default Seat Covers: Imperial INC (Bangalore)

Seat Covers: Imperial INC (Bangalore)-img_3585.jpg

Products Sold:

Leather and Art Leather Seat Covers

What I bought from Them:

I bought Luster Material Seat Covers for my Vista.

Pricing:

Paid around Rs 6,000.

What I liked:
  • Very straight forward folks and since they stitch the seat covers in the same shop, they know what they are talking about.
  • Did a clean job in my car, did not leave a mess inside.
  • Very competetive price.
  • Completed the work as communicated and kept me informed of the progress.
What I didn't liked/Recommendations:
  • Maybe they should have some soft copies of design combinations (they do have printed photos).
Contact Information:

Imperial Inc.
#387, 11th Cross,
Vijaya Bank Layout, Bilekahalli, B.G. Road (Behind IIM Blore).

The finishing looks good. Do they offer any warranty?

Finishing looks clean.

Could you post some snaps of Steering grip, I want to get it done for my ANHC, was it hand stitched or it's tied one?

Was the steering grip included in the price or did you pay it separate? How much did it cost?

They offer warranty on the stitching (maybe 2 years).

The steering grip is included in the price. And yes, it is the Hand Stitched one.

Thankfully to Blore weather and car AC, the effect is minimized.

TSEA: Looking at the picture, the quality of stitching is good and the material is also looking nice. Thanks for sharing the details on the forum

I did talk to Shivakumar few days back regarding seat covers for my Honda City and he was really helpful and courteous on the phone, I have to contact him again to proceed on my requirement.

Have one question though: The last 2 pics of seat covers - are of the same car? I kind of feel they have different colors, may be its to do with lighting / shade? Just curious..

Thanks for sharing the info TSEA!

Thats beautiful seat covers and an excellent job done.

As some one else requested, could you post a pic of the steering wheel as well?

And this is close to where I stay [Near Meenakshi temple] ! So do we go to this place thru the BSNL road [behind IIM] or from the Bilekhalli signal near the Maruti showroom [Mandovi motors I think] ?

You are right. The color difference is due to the lighting (may be due to tinted windows). The second last pics gives a more realistic color combination effect.

Guess I am too lazy to click one pic. But will surely do it over the weekend. You can take both routes. However if you take the road that goes infront of the Ayeppa Swamy Temple Gate (cross the cricket ground on your left), you will have to take a right turn just before hitting the T intersection (The Bilekahalli road lands here). The shop is immediately on the left.

Matches the car dash BUT with such a light color wont it get dirty. esp if you give it for service and some guy with dirty hands . I got a steering grip done in leather ( at karlsson I'nagar) in black and you can see it here http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/long-t...ml#post2040706

The place where the grip goes over the spokes is neatly tucked into the gap between the horn button and steering wheel.

How much did they charge you just for steering wheel? What quality of leather and its thickness in mm?

Thanks

I did steering, hand break handle and gear boot for 2.5 k. The quality of leather was not the top of the line but quite close.

Seat cover looks nice, its VFM deal for sure. But somehow I did not like the fit of steering wheel cover.
