Leather Car Seat Covers

All cars come with some form of seat covers these days, and with a new car you can pay extra for an upgrade such as leather car seat covers or heated seats. For me, it was the decision to purchase my own leather seat covers at a fraction of the cost of what the manufacturer leather seat covers was quoting to install them in my new BMW. There are lots of other reasons people decide to change their seat covers.
I even showed one of my friends and he could not tell the difference between my newly purchased leather seat covers and the expensive BMW seats that a manufacturer would install. Installation took roughly 5-6 hours. It’s not a job you wish to rush. So long as you are taking your time and work the leather-based covers they come out beautifully. I also found there are installation videos accessible on YouTube to assist with the implementation. The installation shouldn’t be bad at all, if I can do it you can do it! And I’ve never fitted seat covers before in my life. I would highly recommend investing in new seat covers if you are thinking about it, it’s so worth the money for the finished result.
