Got my seat covers!

Just installed my FH Group Black Custom Leather Seat Covers. Paid $239 for the full set on Amazon. That includes headrests, center console, rear bolsters and rear center console. Took me 4.5 hours to install (my back kept spasming). It completely changed the look of my interior by completely covering those dirty, stained, cigarette burned gray seats that came with the car.

It looks alright. If only the seats cover isn't stretchy/wrinkles, then I would like it

But you got yourself a good deal so can't argue with that!

omg, that looks horrid.. sorry no offense. I'd rather buy some used seats from a junk yard if they are available.

Maybe they will settle and look better later?

nice try OP but try to make the seats tight from under.
You can buy hooks and straps to secure it so that it doesn't look like your seats been used for 10+ years.

I totally agree with eazy, the Katskin leather seats are a complete like OEM swap. The original skin on the seats are removed and leather ones are put on ( now these seats fit PERFECTLY) and go from $800-$1200 depending on your style. Totally worth it being that the more expensive ones would be customized to your liking and honda charges an extra 1500-2000 dollars for the difference between an EX and an EX-L and you get their standard color.

I intend no offense but most of these guys are right. =[ sorry they do look ok as a temp of to protect the ones below but do not look good if your intend is making your car show off ish. The other guys could definitely say things in a nicer way but they ARE entitled to their own opinion so oh well but save up and get the Katskin dude you'll be elated

I had originally intended on getting the Clazzio ones. Didn't have the money for them. I wonder if removing the seats and using the clips would help. I don't have a garage or even a good place to work on them other than my shared driveway out in the elements. I also don't have anyone that could help. Have been debating on letting my shade tree body guy not only put on my rear spoiler but asking him to take a crack on putting these seat covers on right. Honestly I couldn't reach underneath my seats to clip anything because I'm pretty big myself. Also I didn't know how or what I was supposed to be clipping on. The instructions weren't very helpful. Also in the back seat I broke off a strap during install.

for seat covers i don't think they look bad especially if the interior was cloth before and stained and jacked like you said......

I have been trying to find a decent set of seat covers to protect my leather seats because of the dirt and grease all over my clothes from work so i want something to throw on them when I dd it back and forth to work and such
