@ all - Thanks a ton load for the information about seats and the various types available.

I am trying to get something done for my Bolero and this is what I gather from the thread. ( Please suggest/ advise as necessary)

1. Im from chennai - so leather, art leather is quite a no no, as the weather in chennai is not going to make me enjoy the drive all together.

So the other option leads me towards Fabric/ Perforated fabric ?

The places to get it done :-
1. Stanleys - Too expensive
2. Haiton - Does only art leather and leather

and so option no 3 :-

3. Jeewajee - Anna Nagar ( who apparently uses autoform)

Phone number of Jeewajee is : 044-4265-1156 and Im to connect to someone called Mohammed and the job itself takes about 4 odd hours.

the question i have is : Do i go for Fabric? Or Part leather/ Part PU ? or any other suggestion ?

will greatly appreciate to hear back. Thanks

Well, took the plunge and spoke to Mr. Mohammad at Jeewaajee - Annanagar. Mentioning my reference point to team-bhp changed his tone of voice.

On sat - picked up the autoform seat covers for the bolero . These are not the skin fit ones, but the slip on types. Worked out to 5.5 k including all the labour ( not much involved) . Looks pretty decent, feels alright - overall, pretty satisfied.

Again, thanks to all for pointing in the right direction.

Cheers all

Mustang, Can you please post some pics. My friend is planning to get autoform for this bolero so this might help him.

What is this autoform material? Is this different from regular seat covers? Does this give a ART leather finish? Yes, pls post some pics, it will help. Thanks.

@Mission - Looks like Jeewajee has a shop setup in GP road too; I got one of their manager's reference & got to speak over the phone; I was supposed to visit them last weekend, which I promptly couldn't ; I'll talk to them in the forth coming days, get to know about the material quality, factory & provide you more updates.

@M_S: what was the total cost involved. Nice covers and very well done. Hope it does not sweat at the back?

@Aargee: I hope you mean the woods road, it has been there for a long time, they have just shifted shop recently.
There is a brand called 'Dolphin' which looks super cool. My brother has put them in his car and says it sweats a lot at the back. He's in banglore btw.

The total cost was 12K. It does sweat a little at the back but not too much to bother me. I am planning to have a bead layer at the back sometime soon.

Oh!!! Is it? Actually a reference helped me speaking to them over the phone. Anyway, before I visit them, I'll get the address double checked. What's cool with Dolphin? I mean, the material quality or the variety of colors? Do Jeewajee stock up this Dolphin brand or is it available in Bangalore?

Thanks for the tip on sweat, I'll keep that in mind

Guys, I have asked the same question in yet another thread but have not had a response.

Has anyone tried fixing art leather seats over the genuine OE leather seats that come with the vehicle? Any suggestions/feedback ??

Im looking for new seat covers for my swift.
I want something for 3.5k .
First do you get anything at all for that price ?
Then I dont want it to sweat at the back .

And one doubt. Im installing an amplifier at the back panel of my back seat, will that hinder the fitting of a seat cover .

Go to Carnation, they've some real price ranges; last time (about a month back) I remember the prices for seat covers were ranging from Rs 2000 to Rs 5500

From what I've heard, even the ART ones tend to sweat in the back; you can overcome them using beads.
