Bottle, I dunno about the Stile but the seats on earlier Palio's (pre-NV to be general) came with seats made by Tata Johnson and had a different shape and size. The later models came with seats made by some other company whose name I cannot recollect right now. Accessory stores usually have the seat covers for Tata Johnson seats in stock whereas the newer design seats are bigger in size and will not take the stock covers. The best option is to get a custom set stitched for your car rather than opting for the factory made ones.

Hope that helps.

Hey dude, you might wanna send a PM to headers.

He bought a set of 2 esteem seats for his jeep and got art leather done for it for a very reasonable rate.

The art leather part was done separately and didnt cost much AFAIK.

hey moral , have decided to get stanley but waiting a few months to get some mileage from current fabric mostly will get it done after second service is done. stanley said they would remove current fabric and then stitch so it should be a good tight fit. and also yes the seats do seem different. current 1.6 seats are a lot lower and the back feels a bit different compared to the old 1.2 nv seats

Hey Bottle, keep me updated. I am in minds to go for Stanley in my car too. Let me know how it goes with some pictures if possible please. My 1.6 seats feel higher and softer than the older Tata Johnson ones (Knobs to recline the seats). The current ones are operated with a lever to recline.

Yes possible. I need to take a look now . The knob ones were always Tata Johnson whereas the lever ones that I have are some other make.

cartik-art leather is just good to look at, it heats up very badly and you tend to sweat a lot too. so i would suggest go for genuine leather.if not leather go in for fabric.
bottle-16v100bhp's offer is a good one,cause the amount you plan to spend on seat covers is 15000 k, if you could get racing seats for lesser than that, would be a better buy.
