Is there such a thing as nice seat covers?

All of you that own an SVT know that the leather SUCKS, I wish I could make the word sucks REALLY BIG because it SUCKS. 9000 Miles and already scratched and crinkled to hell, and this is putting leather applicant on it every week.

So here is the question, is there seat covers that don't really look like seat covers, as in, is there a seat cover that actually looks good that I can put over these crappy seats until I can afford some real leather?

Thanks for input!

Do you have the Ricaro seats? If so u dont want to put a seat cover on because that would interfere with your side airbags.

Seat covers never look good. The only ones I seen that did were 'custom made' at an automotive apholstery place.

Just a suggestion but if the seats are wearing really bad, get them replaced under WARRANTY. I got mine (not leather) replaced cause they eventually tore as well as some steel support rod broke..... all under warranty.

Is there a number I can call about the warranty coverage on them? My dealership is really stiff on the "if it aint totally broke dont fix" I heard that Ford has a warranty hotlines that can make decisions for the dealership, or atleast SVT's..I think anyways.

So they suck? Wow, they seemed so nice and felt good. Weird.
I have never seen any good car covers they all suck.
