Impreza WRX STi Seat Covers anyone?

I have the 08 STI and I'm looking to get seat covers for the 2 front seats. Any suggestions? I think the front seats may have airbags in them, but not sure

seat covers due more harm than good IMHO . .
dirt and dust gets trapped between them and the seats working like sandpaper and stainer ! !

I strongly disagree! Seat covers have saved my past cars from coffee spills, food, and other stuff.

unless they're high quality seat covers, i think they look LAME. but i do agree on the aspect that they save the seat, although IMO... whats the point of saving a seat you never even see?

its the same concept as having a bra on your car, yeah it protects it... but you still can't see her pretty face

I use a neoprene seat cover in the rear to protect the seat from damage from two cars seats and the 1 year old slobs that ride back there.

I like them in the front for when I get in the car all sweaty from a summer run or bike ride. You can just pull them out and wash them, without my last seats were all stained up and was a b!tch getting them clean for trade-in.

I agree non-neoprene covers will trap dirt underneath though.

I don't eat or drink in my car, and is strictly forbidden for any passenger to do either of those as well. But somethings people sneak in drinks and snacks and I can't force them to thrrow'em away while driving.

Personally I dont like seat covers. You have a 08 STi so why cover up such nice seats? I say just be careful when/if you do eat and you will be just fine.

I don't know if you can get these in the USA. But we have these here in Australia. They are a Genuine Subaru Loose fit seat cover that is ok to use with seat side air-bags.

Idk if the skins can be swapped on the new sti seats with an 07 wrx. But if that works would u be interested in trading for wrx seats? Since you're just covering them anyway. Lmk
