Default Leather Seat Covers

Hey everyone,

Just a quick question. I have been researching leather modified seat covers, and RIDIES seems to be the most reasonable out there. I am wondering does anyone on here have covers installed on standard seats? Their website shows mostly if not all covers installed on sport seats.

Ridies is on CF quite a bit, so I'm sure if they have any photos of standard seats they will be posted here soon.
Overall, what I've seen looks to be pretty good quality - especially if properly installed.
Good luck with this.

Send them a PM or e-mail and see if they can provide you some pics. I believe all I have seen are pics of sport seats.

Justin we can do both sports and standard seat covers. C5 seat covers that we sell, about 90% of them are for sports seats and 10% for standard seats. It is unfortunate that we don't have very many installed pictures of standard seats. Here are couple of pictures though that one of our customers sent.

Just so that you know every picture that we have, we can do the same pattern for standard seats too.

Thanks

looks like from the photos there's too much slack. Probably because the seat foams wasn't replaced. I ordered mine from Interior Innovations seat covers and seat foams looks great w/o any slack.

Right the installation is not perfect. They need to tighten it some more

I had covers from Ridies fitted about a month ago and they are great. I believe Ridies and Interior Innovations are linked, the websites have the same pictures and my understanding is both products are made in Pakistan.

It mentions Velocity Yellow for a C5. But only Millenium yellow was available for C5's. But the pics look like what I'm wanting.

Yes they are. Unfortunately the seat foams I biught from them is great but bottom seat cushions are way too wide. Right sides are pushed into the floor tunnel so hard every time I adjust the seat seat covers rubbs too hard on the tunnel carpet I'm afraid this will cause to fail prematurely so I will have to take seat bottoms out and trim the excess sides.
