Art leather for 4500??? Are you sure? If yes, pls get the details immediately; Mission_Safari & mustang312 are you reading this? Looks like a good deal here.

@Arjun - Were they slip on types?

@Ganesh - I think slip on types are available in that range but not sure about the stitched ones.

Yes they were the slip on types.

And what do you suggest for my swift ?
Will I be able to get something for 3.5k , which does not sweat and looks a bit nice too.

May be; but I stronly prefer ripping off the fabric & stitching with the ART ones with no short cuts; clean job & good finish.

For 3.5K you can only get art leather of slip on types i guess. It does look nice when the fitting is done proper. Check out the samples at Jeewajee and also Genuine car accessories (habibullah road).

Would it be cheaper in GP road and how about car nation ?
And yes i do want slip on types . I would like it IF there is a splash of white on the black seat covers then it would look nice.

The only problem I find with GP road is reliability; they know every bit on things & know very well how to take a ride right in front of us, so I'm bit skeptical going over there without a reference.

Carnation I doubt, but worth checking with them to find out; Actually Carnation outsource this work to their contacts & they get it done for you. Let me know if you want me to find out & I can find out with them this weekend.

Thanks a lot aargee . It would be of great help if you could check with them if they have something for 3.5k .
My requirements are they should sweat and I would prefer them in black with white splashes.

Yes, I got it Arjun, but IMO, wait for the best (that's what I'm doing); get the job done neat by ripping off the fabric; regarding the sweat part, I'm not sure if the fabric is wrapped with ART leather it doesn't sweat & if the fabric is ripped off it does sweat. Are you sure on this point?

Also, what're the B&W splashes? You mean something like the one attached? Pls clarify.

Yes something like that would be perfect but with the white instead of the red.

Then would prefer it to be wrapped .

Got you; I've been told that these patterns depends upon how the foam is being designed; for example in this pic, you can see how the foam has a pattern & the covering will also follow the same pattern. Hope you got this.

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

Cheers all

Changed his tone of voice? What has his voice got to do with the transaction?

@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.
Autoform is just PVC or PU material nothing different except maybe a cheaper quality material and they make these covers in the north east. In my opinion their stitching and finish is poor.
