Accessories for my Seltos: Seat covers, 7D floor mats & steering cover

I also wanted the door pads to be cushioned but found out that Kia doesn't provide any "gaps" in the panels to insert the fabric.

BHPian ashis89 recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

As the car approaches the 3-year mark, some changes were in order. So I got new seat covers and while at it, I got a new set of floor mats as well (the current ones were difficult to clean). Got a leather steering cover too. The gray color was chosen to compliment the gray elements on the dashboard and yes, the gray Coyote.

I posted the details here

A look at those stripped-down interiors made me rethink my decision for seat covers so I didn't look further until the seats were back. Since the 7D mats were to be installed, I had to get the interiors vacuumed nearby. I had requested for full body water wash but had to bail out due to the waiting time.

I was very happy with the seats and started driving back home. But Google maps had other plans. Not too familiar with the roads in South Bangalore, I was blindly following my guide. And that bugger, instead of taking me through good wide roads, chose a lane where 2 autos can cross each other only when ridden carefully. And that bugger probably found many gullible guys like me - the lane had bikers, cars, pick-ups, a minibus and whatnot. Spent good 30 minutes stuck in the deadlock. And to get things moving, I crawled through some very tight situations, had to climb onto the footpath, doorstep and more to come out of it.

Now, need to find time to get the car washed properly.

I wanted the door pads to be cushioned as well but Shiva confirmed that it is not possible as KIA doesn't provide any "gap" in the panels for them to insert the fabric. That was a big disappointment for me. I had already checked at the dealership if those pads are available separately but they aren't. I need to replace the whole door panels - expensive and overkill. Let's see if I can find any other solution for this.
