Anyone try leather seat covers?

Im thinking about buying leather seat covers (for comfort) for my focus. There 199 at
http://www.byautomotive.com/Shop/Con...id/0/SFV/19604

has anyone bought from them? or has anyone put leather seat covers on there car? Is it worth the 200 bucks? and is it hard to install?
Thanks
John

If I didn't have factory leather I would consider that option. They look pretty good in the pic. If the fit is good and tight they can look really good.

Check how much Ford wants for leather seat covers. I don't know myself, but maybe they would be comparable in price? You can order leather seat covers to replace your fabric ones from ford. I know because I had to have one of mine replaced under warentee. Check it out.. maybe save you a few bucks. The leather ones should be a direct replacement for the fabric ones

Pepboys are now selling racing seats similar to Borla's for just $135 per seat. I was looking at it and they are awesome! I think I'm getting some I wish I could post a picture!

Ypu will find nothing in their website. However if you stop by the store you will find them. I have to ask and see they fit the Focus. Also they start selling motorcycles as well
