Black neoprene seat covers

Still in great shape. The perfect thing for covering up those trashed old seats while you save up the money for new ones, or just to protect the nice seats you already have. They are made to resemble the factory upholstery and actually look pretty good for seat covers. A smokin' deal at $60 plus shipping.



These are made to fit the standard seats - won't fit the sports seats.

Thanks - the graphics credit goes to my photoshop-happy buddy.

The covers are very comfortable in the hot weather - you can actually get in your car that has been sitting top-down in the sun without risking leather burns. They also add a layer of padding which increases comfort.

They're not gone yet, but they are black, not grey. I had them in my grey interior car and I thought they looked fine. The sport seats that I now have are also black and they look awesome with the grey interior.

I got them used from another forum member. Neither he nor I know what brand they are. If you are set on grey, then Cover King and Wet Okole make very nice covers, but they'll run you about $300.

Mark

They were indeed cooler on which to sit compared to the leather, especially with the top down.

(I'm the other forum member who owned them before Mark ... I think!)

Yep - you're the guy that had them before me. They were just the thing to cover up my ratbag old seats while I shopped for new ones.

Is that price for the two seats covers?, Can you send them to Mexico? How much for the shipping using USPS? Thanks.

That is the price for two seat covers. I can't ship USPS because I'm in Canada, but I will check out a shipping cost via Canada Post and get back to you shortly. I'm getting a quote for someone in Oshawa (also Canada) so I can get yours at the same time.

I'll probably need to know where in Mexico to get an accurate quote.

I'm sorry if this is clear to most readers, but what is the difference between the standard seats and the sports ones? Is it obvious? I'm asking because I think my seats look similar to the picture, but depending on the amount of variation, I'm not sure I will know the difference. If these would work for me, I'd definately buy them.

Thanks,

Nitro

The sport seats have wings in the shoulder area and larger bolsters. I would expect shipping to be in the $20 to $30 range, but I can get an exact quote if you pm me your address with zip code.

Here's a pic of the sport seats:

Do you have a comparison in the bolster sizes? Others have stated that the only difference is the shoulder wings.

Don't have the old seats anymore so I can't really check. The new seats are a more snug fit with my hips and lower sides, but it could be that the old seats were so bagged out they had no support left.

I've had that happen before. Two sets of identical seats from the same year, 2002, one set was owned by a larger guy, the other a thinner guy. Now the seats that used to be owned by the bigger guy are noticeably less snug.

Those seat covers were under me all the way from Houston to Northern California and back!

You'll enjoy them immensely during these hot summer months.

BTW, if you have the time, taking out your seats to put them on really makes for a much better fit. Getting your arm under the seat to get the bottom straps secured is a pain with the seats bolted down. Just be sure to disconnect your battery first so you don't get an airbag light.

Thanks for the great advice -- I would have struggled with them in the car without your tip. I also most certainly would have gotten the airbag light if I had tried to take out the seats as I would not have disconnected the battery. I'm learning so much on this site. Thank goodness everybody is so nice and helps us new owners get up to speed!!
