Its nice man.
But I think the driver side seat cover is bit loose or something, because there is a fold in it.
Is the fit and finish like this way or some problem with that ?

Congrats hrman.Post some pics so that we can also enjoy.

@aka_iitd I think you forgot about the pics.Please post the pics (if you have time though)
Thanks Jithu. Will do so shortly. Even I noticed some looseness in Arien's driver's seat. As also the rear passenger seats. He should take it to them and ask them to make it tighter. They will do it. Its not supposed to be loose.
When I was getting my seats fixed, I was watching all the 3 hours and there was a wrinkle on driver's side side wall. I pointed it to them and they rectified it immediately. I guess its easier when the seats are not plonked back in the car.

the seat covers just looked like that in the beginning.its been close to 6 months and the seat covers are perfectly contoured along the OEM seat after usage.
i also had my doubts initially and enquired about it.they told me that the covers would fit in perfect with use or else i could get back to them for refitment.
as of now,as mentioned earlier,it fits perfect.

Default Quotes from diff dealer in Bangalore

I did some enquires, visited some dealer and here is what I got for my Swift:

1) Ceralli (BSK 2nd stage) -

Option 1 --> Art leather with 1.5 mm foam on all seats with real leather on steering wheel = Rs 9000

Option 2 -----> Option 1 + Real leather in the touch areas on front 2 seats = Rs 11, 000

2) Stanley (Mission Rd)

Option 1 ---> Art leather on all seats with real leather on steering wheel = Rs 14000

Option 2 --->Option 1 + Real leather in the touch areas on front 2 seats = Rs 18, 000

3) Marvin ( Lalbagh rd)
Option 1 ---> Art leather on all seats with real leather on steering wheel = Rs 8500

Option 2 ---> Superior Art leather on all seats with real leather on steering wheel = Rs 9500. Had really nice designs, impressed.

4) G Sport (JP Nagar)

Starts from 6k....was not impressive as the above dealers.


forgot to mention that I told that I am looking for the design in the below website (the dark brown one): 2010 Ford Mustang Interior Photos | The Official Site of the 2010 Ford Mustang | FordVehicles.com


Anybody has any experiences with the above dealers?

Thanks Jithu. No these are not branded. The place I went to get it done showed the same sample as Gsport without the logo. So I guess these are Gsport without the Logo..

@hrman: Those look as good as anything can look. Congrats!
Assuming that you got this done from carspot, which material did you choose? I guess that it's the highest grade art leather that carspot has to offer? Also, are there any significant heating problems?
One of my friends is looking for VFM seat covers, and I am thinking of recommending this guy.

Thanks dear.
yes it was done at carspot. I chose the highest grade art leather available with him. A bit of haggling helps too. I would recommend him. He has a good range starting from 2500/- I think. Definitely VFM.
And Ive not faced heating problems in the 2 weeks since I got it fit. But in Bangalore's cool climate the past week, I felt the seats were a bit colder than the outside.

I had ordered PU leather @ Pensee Leathers for 6k including the handbrake and gear-knob and gear-boot.
:: PENSEE Leathers :: having very good quality and the top quality, which they called automative leather costs at around 7500/- and on discount, I am getting it for around 6k. For the steering wheel, they are quoting for 1200/- which is pure natural leather.
They take around 4 hours to fit and will post the pics once I get them done.

I too got my seats done by this Pensee guy.His prices are reasonable.I did the seats with a mix or pure leather and automotive leather. And Steering wheel with pure leather.

I dont remember the exact price but it was little more than 7k. But it was a neat job and still fits and looks good on the seats.

You can check the pics in my garage.

Try GSports. Good and VFM. I am using it from last one year no complaint. If you are near Sarjapur Area I can give you the number of the shop from whom I took. He gave good discount on MRP
