Really fabulous looking seats. I don't think the leather used is the most commonly used "classic" variety from Stanley. The additional bolstering looks very comfy. Where or through whom did you get this done, ghost_rider?

Also, Did you paint the grille black? Looks cool on white.

Gears,

After seeing ghost rider seats i am in double mind now. 40k is pretty costly for me. I cannot afford that. But fit and finish is great. Are there anybody else who can do a customised leather seats in chennai just like what ghost rider has done?. stanley when i visited said he cannot do those extra bolstering of those thighpads and lumbar support. they said it is not advisable to change the contour of the seats. Even if he does, it will be just a inch of extra soft foam . But this type of extra can be done only with hard foam.....

the black grill comes in active models only

the stock seats are quite flat and I just raised it from the sides and the under thigh support and extension was added.No extra padding was done. So now, it gives support in all the right places and is very comfortable. Always wanted a Lazy Boy. This was the closest I could get on my limited budget.

Thanks! I designed the seats and the work was executed by this friend of a friend who only does custom interiors. The seats are made of genuine leather, and I handpicked the leather skin to be used from a batch of eight similar skins.
Stanley was my first choice but too expensive for the customization that I wanted. Besides, these are one of a kind(till now) and a tailor made fit for me.

I bought the Emotion variant and the front end of the car looked dead with stock silver grills and fog lamp covers. They were painted metallic black and now the front end of the car has suddenly come alive.

Great Seat Covers mate ! The colour you chose is perfect for the White beauty. The fit and stitch is absolutely spot on . Linea deserves the best. Congrats !

The horizontal lines , however, are not as the design of the oem seats which is grooved vertically. Matching the lines with the vertical grooves would have given it a more classy look.

Have you also done the rear arm rest inside (the black plastic area) ?

Overall, A Superb Seat for a Super Car
