I've just ordered my new car (i40) and I'm wondering if I its possible to get decent fitted leather(/ette) car seat covers in Ireland. I've seen fairly well fitted and what look to be decent quality covers on taxi's, but have no idea where to get my hands on them. Any ideas folks?

Any sort of seat covers don't look right, especially leather look ones.

Op how about a proper leather retrim?

Best of luck with it, they look well.
I'd say your cheapest option is a regular seat cover on the back only until they're old enough to be warned not to eat in the car!!
I've no idea where fits the ones you mentioned though, I had a link before to some place in Cork, but don't have it anymore!

I know somebody who got his (then) brand new Primera (taxi) seats covered by this crowd. I've no idea if they're still in business, but well worth checking to find out.

It was 8 or 9 years ago. They were excellent quality - much more like factory fitted seats than DIY seat covers (i.e. the Halfords/Argos style covers).

He paid €400 for them at the time. They were good quality leather & fitted like a glove (with the added advantage that they can be unzipped & removed). He sold the car earlier this year & the leather was still like new.
