I've personally looked for aftermarket seats due to this particular reason. I just don't want to spend the 2000+ dollars for Brides/Recaros/etc just for them to get dirty. I just recently signed up for Copart and I'm gonna do a leather seat swap into my SE if I do happen to win the car I'm bidding on. I think that's the easiest way to do it unless you buy the ones on eBay where you have to fabricate the sliders yourself.

Supposed to be seat covers that fit so well they look like stock upholstery.

Damn $600 for seat COVERS? I would think if you look around for a bit you could find some nice ST seats or even some black sport seats for the same or less. Might take some time, but that's alot for some seat covers lol.

Even just looking around like ebay, looks like seats will run you 100-200 for just 1 front. I know what the op means though. I have a 13. Not a mechanic, but the upholstery on my car is a magnet for staining. I think I even have stains from where I've just gone through a drive thru and set a bag down on the passenger seat.

My big thing is that on mine, on the left side of the driver seat, there's a hole where part of the frame actually poked through.

Haven't installed them yet, but I ordered a set of these.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Auto-Seat-C...K6OpxGo2AcLZSQ

Waiting for a little cooler day seeing as the heat index has been 100 or more. Not feeling like putting on seat covers on a humid day with trying to take out the back seat etc.

Could look at a site like this.

https://www.carid.com/2013-ford-focu...er=1&sub-model[ourBodyTypeName][]=Sedan

These are supposed to be custom fit covers for about 103, but they are for just the front for cheaper ones. For that money, they should give you the back seat cover too. If my 20 dollar ebay covers don't hold up well, I may grab something like these for the front and get a cheaper back seat cover from ebay that matches.

https://www.carid.com/2013-ford-focu...parentsubmodel[]=SUBMODEL|Sedan

I like my car, but man ford messed up some things. Like the center console, I wish they had not made it take up so much room. I like extra leg room and they wasted a lot in the 2013 because of all the plastic in the center console in my opinion.

Yeah cloth seats are just not the way to go. I'd love to hear how those seat covers work out thought I dont mind spending that little money on a cover. I did manage to find corbeau seats and bolt in rails which would be around $800 for the front but then it brings up the issue of the seat airbags (lights on the dash bug the hell out of me)

Yeah, I found aftermarket seats on eBay, but not sure where you'd even get brackets. I think the good thing about the cover king seat covers, I think they may be 3 pieces. IE separate bottom piece, separate top piece and separate head rest. I saw a video where some guy had the neoprene seat covers in a Dodge truck for 2 years and like 50k miles. So that might be good. If I go that route depending how my cheap ones work, I'd probably get something like black and tan or black and red for the front, and buy a cheap 20 dollar universal set online just for the back seat that matched or close to it.

Best bet is to do an interior seat swap to the black sport cloth seats, should run you a couple hundred bucks at the junk yard and will bolt right in without issues. The leather seats from an SE or titanium would be the best route to take. In the SE they were offered with and without heat and the connections for the power seat are already there in the harness, it's plug and play. I have non heated leather in my current 15 se and had the black and grey cloth in my previous 12 SE. I prefer the look of the leather, fees much more upscale for an economy car and I'll be adding seat heaters in the fall.
