Default Seat Cover Throws

I use these seat cover throws that attach around the head restraints. They are fairly reasonable, go on and off very quickly and don't interfere with the seat operation or airbag function. Great for daily driving to protect the seats and when you want to show the car off and don't want them on it's no hassle to remove them quickly.

Just installed my gray ones today. Took about 2.5 hours. Looks pretty oem minus a few wrinkles here and there. Seller was top notch. Btw I colored the stitching red myself as that wasnít an option. Donít ask me how long that took lol.

Those look very good. They should offer very good protection for the OEM covers.

Are these to just change up the interior of your car or make sure the next guy who buys it has new looking seats?

In my case, I want to add a little color to the interior (protecting the seats is an added bonus)

Ditto. There's nothing wrong with my seats other than 'blah'. These covers look GREAT (IMO) and I get the added bonus of keeping the OEMs pristine ... for WTF I want to do with them.

I'd love to see the Red / Diamond inside an Adrenalin Red with a good camera.

Interested to see how well it would match.

I don't have a photo as requested but I placed a Red Sandyeggo seat skin next to my Torch Red Vette; the seat skin is a slightly lighter shade of red.
