The seat covers are not tightly(permanently fitted) !
For doing so,you need to rigidly clamp it using wires and it gets difficult to remove those...if you have to remove them then you have to discard the seat covers...thats the reason why I didn't opt for tighly fitted seat covers...
Regarding colour, this is the same camel colour(crush type) which comes default with black cars eg: SKODA,...
I fitted those after having a look at many black car - seat covers...
Black cover for a black car doesn't go well atleast for me ! thats my opinion...I like contrast...and believe me you have to see them physically and you wd like it ! All my friends have appreciated the colour as well as the material !
anyway,its yr opinion bro....but there's a way to put things on black and white....

I personally find leathers upholstery useless in Indian conditions. I have got leather in my lancer & while they look good they burn the passengers each time.

being a delhi-ite for quite sometime, i won't recommend to opt for leather seatcovers.

in delhi weather, leathers will make your life difficult even with AC.
in such a weather it is better to opt for some cloth based seatcovers, which allows your back and base(!) to breathe!
else sweat and itching will make you do acrobatics in car!!

hey buddy, dont get worked up..

I said the seat covers looked flimsy coz they are "loose".
Btw, Ford was offering Black leather seats with ikons in past, those looked mean...

Peace ............

Speedbuster,I agree that the seat covers are a bit loose.(but it doesn't look bad as you suggested )....after reading some responses in the forum - many had suggested to go for tightly snug fitted seat covers..however,the dealer kept suggesting me not to go for it.In case I have to replace or remove them then they will have to be discarded...and its a pain to remove/replace them..

The ford guys had only 3 options(colour) for Leather seat covers and they were charging a hefty premium for it(it doesn't come default dude...you have to pay for it)....I am not a big fan of leather seat covers...the one I have bought suffices the purpose and I have an option to keep changing them often !
