Thanks !

If possible please put up pictures of the same, it would be of great help.

Here you go. Color difference seems bit more in this pic due to the flash. Under normal day lighting it's less.

Do not have details of the shop as it was routed via Shanbaug/Select Auto garage in dadar who outsourced.

Do they have artificial leather as well? I am personally not inclined towards leather of any sort. Also, i have the JazzX that came with blue black interiors and i wanted to enjoy the feel of the fabric on the new car and hence didn't opt for seat covers at the time of purchase. I think now is the right time, but i need fabric seat covers, preferably in blue black. Any pointers?
Raju and co should be able to satisfy both your demands. They might even have some ready made options for the Jazz available.

You can have art leather/PU options but I will not suggest them for the steering. For the simple reason that they will get burning hot when you car is parked under the summer sun. Also, their life will not be as much.

Raju does seat covers too. Again, a variety of materials, colors and patterns.

Absolutely remarkable craftsmanship! Kudos to the person who pulled this off. The red stitching on black looks really good.

The workmanship on JAZZ is top notch. The Rs 2000 spent is well worth. It almost makes me do something like this on my G3 City. Most installations I have seen, in fact even for leather seats do not look that tight. Most steering covers in fact look hideous if they are not into all gaps inside the steering panel.

I went to Raju's Upholstery shop past week for getting steering wheel done on my Fortuner. My conditions were pretty simple

- OEM looks and Finish
- Genuine Leather
- Slightly higher thickness than OEM since I find Fortuner's steering a bit too thin!

Phoned him in advance and dropped by his place at 6 PM. He understood my requirements and showed me available color options for Fortuner Steering. He re-confirmed what BHPians Sahil and Karan discussed in this very thread, that the Toyota OEM leather shade is a bit hard to come by. He suggested me 2 nearest color matching options, a light grey shade and a darker shade which was nearing black in terms of looks. I went with light grey shade from Stanley. He started working on it immediately, took off the steering after detaching the airbag assembly carefully. Steering wheel was wrapped on top of OEM covering for extra thickness and made ready in 1.5 hours flat and meanwhile I asked him to do the gearknob as well since it had also worn out. He informed me that the gear numbering will go away since he doesn't have die-cast for these. I agreed to this and he made the gearknob in same leather in 15 mins.

Please see the pics attached for craftsmanship.

Worn out Steering - Original

Raju Working on Steering Wheel. Here in this pic, you can see how much difference is there in chosen color Vs OEM color.

How the overall Fitting looks in my Car
Car Upholstery - Raju & Rahul (Palika Bhawan, New Delhi)-img_1141.jpg

My overall impression:

- Excellent craftmenship. Steering and Gearknob Looks and Feels OEM.
- Genuine Pricing - Steering work costed me INR 2000 & Gearknob INR 500. I did take BHPian Viraat's reference for pricing.
- Flexible timing for work - Autocraft was asking me for 4 hours and that too at their decided time. I couldn't manage that. Raju did all this work from taking off, stitching & re-installing everything under 2 hours!
- Excuse the impression of color mismatch from the pics. Camera isn't picking up right color. Although the color of leather is slightly lighter than OEM, no one can make out it is aftermarket while sitting in the car. It matches almost 98% with dash and other parts inside the car.

I liked his work and would recommend him for his work wholeheartedly. Good genuine down-to-earth guy.

Got the seat covers installed on my S-Cross from Raju & Rahul, Plaika Bhawan. Visited them on a Thursday to give order and went on the following Sunday for the installation.

Extremely satisfied with their work. My dad wanted to increase the front seat height by 2 inches, they added 2 layer of foam sheet inside in the base of the front seats. My car does not come with seat height adjust.

Fit and finish are top notch! I did not get the time to take the pictures in day light, the only 2 pictures I took at the time of completion does not do justice to their work.

Money spent - 12K
Total time taken for the installation - 5 hours
