Very true. I was running my car with the fabric seats for less than a month and was shocked at the accumulation of dirt on them (despite running with AC on, all the time).
Thanks for the info. Did you put a slip-on or you removed the fabric and put custom covers??
Where is this shop exactly located?? Do they also stock GSport??

Yes E_L, fabric attracts dirt like magnet, and it's difficult to clean them also. I'm not comfortable sitting in fabric seats because the clothes gets stuck onto them and makes me uncomfortable.

I am planing get one of them too for my Swift.
Please do post more info when you get it done. Where is this shop located exactly? Do they have a good range to choose from and will they do nice work?

SupremeBaleno was talking about a shop called Gaylook somewhere in peters road.. will have to check that also.

They were custom made covers fixed on to the seat. No need to remove the fabric from your seat. The readymade slip ons are generally loose. This one hugs on to the seat & looks like a OE seat. This shop is in Anna Nagar, next to saravana bhavan. Let me know if you need any help.
cheers

As quoted by esteem lover the shop is a couple of buildings next to Saravana Bhavan on the Anna Nager main road.

Speak to Mohammed there. Phone number of Jeewajee is : 044-4265-1156.

Congratulations, bottle.

Me and praveen_v visited Adamjee,royapettah who's famous for seat covers, on friday.
He's quoted 9k for art leather,perforated seat covers from GSport for the Fiesta and they are brought down to order too.
I checked out fabric seat covers for the Safari and found just two patterns in grey.

^its p.u not leather. i actually went to check the leather or a leather plus art leather combo but 10k vs 23k for seats alone made me choose the former.

initially was quoted 14k including door trims but told him to do half trim alone since the lower part of the door already has a plastic covering which i wanted to retain
