Hi all,
thanks for reading.
I'm planning to replace my cushion cover or to replace them, thinking of semi-leather (full leather if the price is right).
Since my car is already obsolete design, will have to custom-order the seat covers.
Anybody can recommend a shop around Klang Valley - good quality and affordable.
Thanks

If the seats are not in good condition can also opt to change the seats with chop shop ones..... smile_wink.gif

My old Accord, last time got bucket seats, so mod a little....

If they give you real leather, then price is like that. Even half leather means the whole top surface for front and back seats will take a lot of leather to sew....

Not like that price - just that high margin, 1 sq ft of good leather only USD1.70 to 3.00 - how many sq ft after wasteage - count it urself and see how much they make but clant blame them - how many set they do a day - have to cover expenses and labour costs too -

Also from your pants wearing away the leather and the metal buttons in jeans will scratch the leather, kids playing with toys on the leather etc.
