    Took Hubby about 3 hours, fit and quality are really good.

  2. Seamelody.hayletowans (verified owner)

    Took about 4 and a bit hours to fit, unfortunately I incorrectly fitted the two front seat back covers. These both have air bag tags and should be fitted nearest to door windows, shame the instructions dint provide a FYI line would have avoided another hour to swap…. QUALITY is Absolutely great, everyone thinks they are factory fitted. I now feel the Cali has a much better durability and finish, no idea why WV choose the lightest fabric ever, Price is high but its definitely worth the ££ – check out my pics posted before I swapped the front back covers, against our wooden floor the color combo is spot on !

    I’d recommend these without hesitation, the kicker …. thought they were back in stock end of March when I pre-ordered, then arrived 4 weeks early so in time for our first weekend away 🙂

    Great seats but like above the instructions were confusing and led to the front covers going on the wrong seats. Also the online ones are for different seats!

    The finished result was great. Looks like factory fitted. Not cheap but you don’t get this quality for nothing. Now then, the fitting; the pictures ( you couldn’t call them instructions) were less than useless. The on line instructions ( no words) weren’t much better. We found the amateur video on YouTube the best. The armrests are mighty tough to remove but you don’t need a ratchet just a ring spanner ( inexpensive) and a pair of gloves to prevent damaging hands. Took about 4 hours. Having a partner helps.

    These are superb seat covers, we feel that they really add to the look and feel of the interior.

    Took us 3 hrs to fit as we struggled to attach the seat bases properly. Did not receive the specified fitting tool, but a blunt butter knife did the trick.

    Note, the zips on the arm rests run perpendicular to the arm rests not in line as pictured (slightly detracts from aesthetics), however, we would highly recommend these covers.

    Tired of cleaning even the smaller water stain off the factory moon rock seats we went for these black and grey leather look covers and I’m very happy. Not cheap but they look great and as others have pointed out they don’t look like covers at all. In fact they look like they are standard kit and have already proven their practicality on our last 2 days out.
    Fitting is not simple but straight forward if you look at any decent online video demo along with the instructions. It took me under 4 hours to do it alone but a few extra hands when fitting the back seat cover would definitely help.
    I’d give these 10/10 for fit, look and feel.

    Great covers – bit expensive.
    Instructions were poor and link to video not much better.
    Not sure how you are supposed to connect the front and back of the swivel seat back rest covers together. The two plastic strips do not click together they are designed to be slid together from the ends which is impossible in situ.
    Just tucked it under the plastic trim for now.

    6 stars for the product but 2 stars for fitting instructions! Fitted to my T6 Beach and they look fantastic – much better than I expected and I had high hopes. They really do look like a factory fitted item and have transformed the interior.

    The instructions for the front seats were fine and no problems to fit those – just a bit off fiddling around and contorting under the seats!. The back seats on the Beach though…no instructions for that at all. The instructions provided include a link to a video but they aren’t much use and they’re the one for the rear bench doesn’t play. The Beach bench seat has plastic clips – not elastic to combine with hooks, so you need to work out how to attach those. The back of the beach bench has a ‘blind’ that need to be detached (this isn’t mentioned in the instructions for some reason, but I have since noticed it is mentioned on the order page – strangely (!) I read the instructions and not the order page when looking for information on how to fit the covers – (please add the note to the instructions to save people a lot of time!) No guidance on what to do with the blind and I’m reluctant to start making holes in the new covers to reattach so have rolled it up and tucked under the seat out of the way of the folding mechanism.

    So, brilliant product and for me worth the cost but it wouldn’t be too much to expect the instructions to be improved would it?
