Plastic seat covers should be removed for 3 times, each time during the service and it should be cleaned and put back.

After the 3rd service it would be the appropriate time time to replace it with art or leather seat covers

I kept the seat plastic on for a few days - I was travelling a lot and planning to buy seat covers after the trip and didnt think it abnormal for a few days.
I kept the ribbon on for 3-4 days as my parents were seeing the car after a few days (I wanted to surprise them as they did not know we were buying one) and it would feel good to see them see their son with a brand new car!
So it's just personal reasons.
The seat plastics were off after the first first few days and the ribbon was taken off after my parents enjoyed their son's car!

Default When is the right time to remove polythene covers from seats of your new car?

Your brand new shining car, you drive it with all the grace, but when will you remove the polythene covers from the seat. Its ok if the car is new or just few days old, but what about year old car and still the polythene is not removed.

So I was just wondering when is the right time to remove polythene covers from seats of your new car. What do you do with your new car, take the poll above and give your views.

Thread exists. And really this thread is kind of pointless. The plastic covers should be removed immediately after delivery.

Except in the case of the Omni (my first 4-wheeler) where I wanted to rip off the plastic covers myself , the Indica and the Safari had the plastic covers ripped off by the delivery team.

I kept the plastic covers on the Omni for a few weeks because I was undecided about seat covers. And then I decided for good - I haven't fit seat covers on any of my vehicles ever since.

His car, his money - let him do what he wants. My father used to be very careful about the Padmini's cover - I never had a cover for my cars. Same principle - his car, his money.

A condescending attitude gets us nowhere.
