Default Anyone bothered by the fact no one sells seat covers?

Now note i don't mean covers to go over your existing seats but instead a entire set of new skins for your seat. Of course this would require you to strip down your original seats to install them but why does only the factory offer them and no one else?

Is this something other people are looking to purchase besides just me?

I am taking a price of $800.00 possibly for entire skins including the back seat.

Who else would want these? Should i try and get a source to manufacture them? And what color would you want? Leather (PU) with faux suede centers perhaps?

Just curious if this is something i should pursue. I have the connections to get this made but its not practical to manufacture it unless others are wanting it as well.

If 05-07 sti and wrx seats are the same size, then this might be your option

I've bought from leatherseats.com in 2002 for my old wrx, folks have bought from katzskins, etc.

These lots have been around for more than a decade. Where have you been?

I helped put my brothers in his truck, wasn't to hard, if you have the seat covers off look at seat heaters. Perfect time to do it

they seem like a really good product. For my seat in black leather with blue suede inserts like the stock cloth ones they costed at 1400... not bad.

I bout neoprene covers from Wet Okole, I imagine they'd work as fabric replacements.

katzin is def a great company. my Offroad shop prob did 200+ sets of katzin covers and they always fit great. even most dealerships use them when converting a car to leather
