New Seat covers installed (large pics)

I purchased full leather new seat covers (finonimus, they no longer have an Etsy store, but do have their own website) from Etsy and finally had them installed. I'm pleased with how they turned out. Much better quality than the OEM covers. Pics are large.

Looks great!. Nice and snug.

Question... the insert... the wrinkles... feature or bug? How much $$$ for the covers, and wwhat did installation run $$$?

I've been on the fence about Lseats. The vendor you mention... I googles just the name... nothing. Can you share a link to their website?

Nice work. Did you install them yourself or did you use an upholstery shop? It looks like you have sports seats which adds to the appeal.

Starter986 - I think the bright sunlight used for the photos may have exaggerated the small wrinkles in the seat back inserts. After Spdrcr21 uses the seats for a while the leather will probably smooth out and, I don't think the wrinkles will be noticeable.

I checked the website. The upholstery kits appear to be reasonably priced. Please post an update in a year or two regarding your long-term satisfaction with the quality.

Hi All, their Etsy store no longer exists, but RupturedDuck posted a link to their website. The covers were under $700. I worked with them to make the covers full leather, add the Porsche Crest and match my Cocoa Brown interior. I did install one of the covers while I had the seat apart (I was repainting the seatbacks). I held off completing it since I needed a second set of hands to get a better fit and I also wanted to add foam and fix broken bottom drivers seat cushion. I had a local shop install them for $250. I too was going to use Lseat, but the installs looked hit or miss. I took a chance on these guys and very impressed. I don't really notice the insert wrinkle, they've started to go away. We'll see how they hold up, but the leather looks, feel and smells great. Thanks
