That road is still good in its character, but traffic and road surface condition means most of the time it's not fun anymore.

I was talking of the 2003/2004 "era", when things were still very sane in Hyderabad .

Default Seat covers - nice

I had the privilege of seeing the seat covers yesterday and they were absolutely great looking. The fit is good and the overall effect is great. They will look better once they are used a little and set in.

+1 to your views! The fit and finish looked superb, as did the colour. The best part was the killer price.

The best way of ensuring that they get 'used a little and set in' is to take a gang of bhpians for a long drive.

Please take carwale report with a pinch of salt. Simple example, his report quotes 0-100kmph : 10.30 whereas a Cruze does 100kmph from standstill in 9.36 seconds.

Those were the days. But, then Civic and Cruze were not introduced then

Thanks for the compliment guys. For the price paid, even i think it was well worth it. I tried again this morning to upload the pictures but, its timing out. Hence, requested Milecruncher to post it on my behalf.

Pictures havent come out very good and shade looks a bit on the shinier side but, it isnt that shiny. During night its got a nice brown muted and sophisticated look. During day time, its slightly shiny but, then again it aint that bad.

Pictures coming up soon.

Enjoy !!!

Found another review that says 0-100 is 10.3sec's and 60-100 km / h (4th gear) 10.5 sec. The reviews in both overdrive and autocar say 0-100kph is 9.36sec's exact now i dont know who to believe. Is 9.36 sec's what Chevy advertise?

Here are some pics of the interiors of White Annihilator after being done.

Poor picture quality due to Car Owner not being serious while taking photography lessons from me

The colour is perfect, and the way the contours of the seat are still there is great, BUTTTT the fitting just dosent cut it for me. I mean after seeing other peoples Stanley seat covers on the forum this is the only negative. Hope my criticism is taken in the right spirit. Of course im sure it was total VFM.

mobike008/ MileCruncher,

Lovely pics of the seat covers there. Congratulations and a job well done.

Request you to kindly share the vendor details and also the pricing for this super job. (Either here or via a pm).

Cheers.

@Ani, thanks for posting the pictures on my behalf. When can you spare some time for photography lessons? Iam in the mood to downgrade my skills

The fitting is tight and quite decent. Only place i am unhappy is with arm rest which is just a topi (cover) as they couldnt open the armrest and were scared the screws may break. With regards to fitting you cant even compare with Stanley as their basic stuff cost 35K and the premium one ( which i liked) is more like 45K+....When you pay that kind of money, its abvious you get nothing but the best. It's for folks with super deep pockets...not me !

Well, since i know this guy and he is one of the major contractors for all car showrooms in hyderabad, the amount that i paid for this is Rs.3800

Considering it was a complete doorstep service, its more than VFM...dont you think?

Looks good. In factory fitted cars, they cover the door pads with the same leather.

Also there is a pad on the dash as well for the Cruze right?

Damn!! this is so VFM pandey ji!!!
I paid 4500 for my seat covers of the Ikon. This looks like a steal that too at the comfort of your home. Awesome!!!
Do share the details of the vendor with me too. May be I'll look at replacing mine in due course of time.
