What is the next - how about fixing chrome plate in the inside door handle(where you have the fabric). I have ordered one from Ford STore. It costs shade above rs 1000 for four handles?
No chrome for me , i love black highlights in light color. I am searching for scuff plates with lights now. Not sure if it is good or not, but the looks were awesome. I dont remember in which thread i saw those scuff plates but they were looking awesome with blue light. (@gilead: May be we can search together for the scuff plates with light )

I am still under the lease plan so cant change my alloys or tyres as it voids warranty. Else my baby would have sported the Plati PY297 15 inchers by now with Michelin XM1+ or may be Yokohama S Drive.

So the thread cannot pull the cover edges together here. Any suggestions how this can be corrected?
Nura thanks. Can you post the pic of your steering wheel with the area which you are mentioning ? If you are speaking about the area where the thumb rests then you can take a look at my steering wheel pic and it is entirely closed and it is tighthly stitched. Mine is jackspeed art leather seat covers and steering wheel cover. May be the leather cover which was given did not have proper length. Today my installer was telling that this cover has good length and it was easy for him to stitch and i would say he had done a pretty neat job.

My car already has the original Ford scuff plates. But I agree that scuff plates with blue-ish light would look awesome. Let me find out if any accessories shops nearby have it.

@ramsagar: The seat cover cost was Rs 4650 and installation charge was Rs400. THe dealer mentioned that if its general fitting then the cost would be Rs 150. He also promised that the tight fit would be made in such a way that it would be looking closer to a OEN finish .. i had my fingers crossed before the installation could be done. But, after they installed the covers it was an awesome work done by these guys.

@aravinrd: I need to thank you for directing me to this shop, thanks mate.
