Exclamation Quick Help please! which colour seat covers

hello guys, i wanted a quicky!

i have an alto silky silver colour. i have ordered art leather seat covers from a brand named hitech. i have to tell them the colour. i am planning for dual coloured seats.

he has suggested me dark grey( matching the inner dark grey trims) and light grey (one matching the body colour). what do u feel about this combination.

or shall i go for some other combination. please suggest. if any photographs of patterns are available i will be very thankful buddies.

considering that you have a silver alto, a combination of dark/light grey will look good. In my opinion, go for it.

hmm i was thinking of some sporty ones like red black combi but i think they will look gaudy on silver alto. also beige will be a total mismatch.

Get the black and silver combi, IMO the grey looks too subtle , check my gallery I have used black and grey in my baleno.

Just got my parents Alto's seat covers done from G-sport and went for the black and silver combi. Looks appealing, I have no pics though.

the black and grey combi is looking good. how much did the G-sport cost you. i think the baleno trim is a bit darker than altos.

i have ordered a similar pattern like yours.

Yeah you are right the baleno's trims are a tad bit darker than the Alto's . G-sport cost about 5k odd for the baleno.

The Alto's seat covers costed 6k change since the silver combi is 1500/- expensive than the normal grey.

ooh no then i think i should have ordered g-sport itself rather than HITECH. mine will also cost a rough 5000 rs with steering cover, gear knob , gear shifter cover and the seat covers. its a dark grey (almost black) and silver combination.

Guys any reviews of hitech (mumbai)

I agree. Plus the red and black combo is way too common.

Grey would suit the interiors and the exterior color well.

If you stay with the dark colors they will tend to NOT show dirt so easily.

ya and i think cleaning will be easy too. but the stitch treads will be of white colours. and the pattern is with wrinkles near the hear rest portion. i hope cleaning will be easy though.
