designation hi
i had a good look at PU, g-sport and genuine leather.. and man what a difference.. but since budget is a constraint.. im sticking onto a high quality PU.
One other thing is that the blue i want comes only in stanley leather and the next option is PU which I was lucky to get..
as for doing up the entire esteem door panel.. it is not possible they say..because of the curves on the panels
so im sticking to door trims, seats, gear boot..

Oh Yes, you do can get original leather seats. There are various ranges to it. I got mine done recently from Ovion in Bangalore. Cost 36K. Stanley is more expensive but it generally considered the best in business.

What kinda harm are we talking about here ? Dont worry no radiation is emitted from the OE seat covers .

On a serious note, hope you have removed the plastic covers off it. Its just the matter of choice, you can retain the OE seat covers or change it to something that you like.
