OK, I haven't seen any good pics of red cars with seats and I agonized over the color choices. Finally got mine and installed this morning and I'm really happy with the results. Covers are a little loose here and there (minor) but they did a great job at fitting them/making them. So with that, here are some pics. I tried to take them with the red paint in the picture..and I really liked how the car looked in the sunlight - so they're all taken outside.

Picked up my seat covers last week and they are fantastic. Really high quality and the colors look great. Ordered Charcoal Gray and Cobalt Blue full piping. Seat heater is really nice too. Can't wait to order the switch from Nissan and wire it into the console.

Definitely worth driving down to their shop for their free installation. It took them 30 minutes and would've taken me nearly all day with less than perfect results.

installed my seat covers today. they look really nice. I think these colors (charcoal and grey) go with the interior better than the original seat colors.

Here are the before and after pictures:

Before:

After:

This little wire hook was a big help getting hooks from the back of the seat to the front. With the batteries under the seat, there is not much room.

I like the seat covers, but here are a couple things that could be better:
1) they smell bad. I have a headache from the smell. I even unpacked them and let them air out in the garage overnight before installing them.
2) The Leaf letters are not what I expected. I thought they would be embroidered. Instead they are just an iron-on that does not look like they will last.

I've seen several people complain about the smell, and all the pics I've seen are of charcoal/grey, which doesn't look dark enough to solve or at least lessen the problem I foresee, which is gradual dirt/sweat staining of the seats. I'd be interested in hearing of buyers' thoughts on these covers after several months of use. For now I want to check out some other options. The local auto upholstery guy told me $1800 for all-leather interior and he wouldn't just do the front seats, but wanted to do arm rests, etc. Still looking. Can anyone in the South Bay recommend a spot that will put on a pair of quality car seat covers? With a bad knee and bad back I'm not so enthusiastic about trying to do it myself anyway, although I managed to assemble a BBQ last week.

I think the smell is subjective. Some people may not like it, but others like myself don't mind it. It's just new neoprene smell, not any different than new car smell. It'll go away eventually.

I think the beauty of the Neoprene seat cover material that Wet Okole uses is that it's much easier to clean than the conventional fabric material used in cars, or even leather. That's because the Neoprene's backing material is 100% water proof, so it allows you to really thoroughly wet the Neoprene so you can perform like an in-place washing almost. Along with the wet suit shampoo cleaning solution, you put a couple of drops of this shampoo into a bucket of water and basically give your cover a thorough shampoo, then rinse it with fresh water and towel try.

The darker color may hide the stains and dirt better, but that also means that you let the covers go dirty for much longer before cleaning them, which is not necessarily a good thing in terms of maintaining the cleanliness so that it'll last longer.

Installation help - SF Bay Area

Tue Jul 19, 2011 9:52 pm

I'd like to get these for my leaf but don't remotely have the time to do it -- anybody who has already figured it out want to earn a few extra bucks putting them on my Leaf? In SF Bay Area, could be arranged in SF, East Bay or Palo Alto (my leaf spends time in all 3)

PM me if you have any interest... thanks! always faster to do these things a second time.

I realize it's WAYYYYY too late to get in on this - just looking for order details, as I'm not too keen to get any of the confusing questions wrong about seat-mounted airbags (I think it's 'yes'), type of headrest, etc.

Did anybody (that successfully installed his/her covers) keep their order details?

Thanks,

I'm not entirely sure why they even ask all those questions. You can call them if you'd like but I would just give your estimated guesses and they'll know it's for a Nissan LEAF and be able to make it right. When I called to order they didn't ask any of the fit type questions.

Charcoal and grey pipping turned out very nice for me.
