Such leather type seat covers can be had for 4-4.5K in Lajpat Nagar Delhi. 10K is too much to pay for some plastic

But G-Sport is known for its quality & always expensive than the the normal Art Leather Seat covers.

Even the best quality ones are less than 5K.
You can choose the quality yourself and get one made on order if you don't find a ready piece.
Moreover the factories supplying to many brands are the same supplying to lesser known brands. After brand embossing, the price doubles.
By feeling and touching the seat cover its very easy to make out how good or bad the quality is

but brand value speaks mate! an accord from honda has more features and is much more spacious than a merc C-class which is priced much higher, but a merc is a merc... you cant ignore brand value!

That is one hell of a driving experience. Covering the entire length of the country; you my friend, need to hit the travalogue and ownership section. I am sure you have a lot of surprises in your hat!

So, let us get on with pics for this page.
Here are a few from the recent trip.

Stayed in a quaint very 'woody' place called Shringi Vatika.
Lovely terraced garden, flowers a-plenty and a river in full spate gushing down below!
My biggest grouse was that there was no parking area and my poor Scorpio had to be left on the side, dangerously close to the narrow road. Luckily the road does not see much traffic.
This place is at Ghiyagi, 12 kms from the Jalori Pass (towards the Kullu valley side).

NIP Nice interiors! Just dont keep your ambipure right above your deck cause there have been cases of ambipure leaking and damaging the music system panel!

Now, 'damaging' might be a bit strong!
What happens is that the flavour of the music changes significantly!

You can either wear a HMT watch or a Rolex. I dont know what your idea of 'best' or 'quality' is, but I've seen lots of crappy 5-6k jobs also...not upto my mark. Besides, if you see my pics, the doors, gear knob, grab rail etc. were done in 10k too. Its been close to 4 years and there's not been a single rip anywhere. Still looks new. Totally worth the price for the quality. Its nothing to do with an 'embossed' brand - G-Sport is known for quality here.
