Just got some money from a client, and I need to replace my front seats. My driver one is fine.
But the passanger seat has a total of 5 things wrong with it.
1.) Wendy's salad water stain (thanks ex-gf)
2.) Acid Rain stain from when sister left window open
3.) Right Recline lever doesnt like to work sometimes
4.) Another stain from god-knows-what
5.) Big oil stain from guy at tire place that rode with me to help me with my vibrating steering.

I need a set of NICE seats, not high tech racing like sparco or cheap joe-shmoe (plastic rice seats) seats.
Something with pleather, cloth, or vinyl would be great. Trying to keep it within the 200-300 dollar range. I have looked on Ebay, but they either look too cheaply made, or like they wont fit my car.

Any ideas anyone?

just in case it matters, its an 05 ZX3.

katskinz seat covers are the best you'll find. of course that wont fix the reclining lever.

maybe check the buy/sell sections for some seats, or maybe a set of SVT seats.

Try Pep boys or Auto Zone. Usually they carry APC or some other lower end name brand.

Get a set of SVT seats(if they fit). They're comfy and nice looking.

I tryed seat covers, A.) most of them look tacky, B.) they dont fit right

and as for the SVT seats, I have yet to see a pair go for under 800 bucks.\

as for the upholstry shop, I called them and got a quote, 700 for the front seats alone, of pleather.

The thing with seat covers is they rarely fit right. Now, cruzstyle's do fit properly, if you look at his pics. Just be sure if you ARE doing seat covers, that you don't have the side airbags in the seats. I know I have them, but i have an SVT. IF you install a seat cover over a side airbag, the airbag won't function properly in a crash.

maybe i sound old here, but the airbags are there for a reason, and when you get hit by the idiot running the red light, you're going to need them.

good luck in your search. i'd look at older cars for a set of nice stock seats, and then go to an import junkyard. there's always some nicer/newer cars at the one near me, because idiots by them and drive like it's an F1 car, then total it.
