Neoprene seat covers

***04 Porsche Boxster 986: Convertible! Only 55,000k miles!***

Here is a link to a boxster for sale. Does anyone know where you can get the neoprene seat covers he has on the box. My seats are in pretty good shape for being 12 years old, but I could probably bring myself to put these covers on to preserve them even longer. They even have the Porsche crest.

Thanks for any input.

They appear to be Wet Okole seat covers. I once had them on a Volkswagen I used to own. They were okay, left the interior smelling like neoprene and in some places discolored the leather/leatherette and seemed to cause stiffness in those areas.

I'd probably go sheepskin if I were to get covers as they'll have better breathability for the leather and your backside as well.

One of the great things about a stock Boxster is the smell of German leather seats when you get in. I miss that since I added racing seats. I have also spent several weeks on a Dive boat over the years and neoprene might be overwhelming on a hot day. It also tends to absorb other nearby odors.
