Took delivery of the Ukatex Seat Covers I ordered about 4 weeks ago...just tried one of them on quickly and I am pretty happy with the fit and quality considering that a full set cost me about £188 including delivery for the two front seats and the rear 2 seat bench...now the seats will be more dog friendly!

I know I'm resurrecting an old thread, but I'm evaluating some seat covers for my T5 Beach (MY2015) and I was looking at Ukatex products as they look good.
I was wondering how the covers are fixed to the seat: the product description says "velcro fasteners" but looking at some photos it looks like there are some elastic cords.
Is there anyone who has bought those Ukatex cover who can shed some lights?
Thank you in advance for your help!

Hi, there is a combination of 'fastenings' dependant on the part of the seat is being covered:
-The Head Rest has a zip closure on the one side/underneath.
- The Arm Rests are elasticated and just pull over the existing.
-The Front Seat Rear panel is stretched over the seat back and has velcro onto itself below the armrest and underneath (The backrest includes a map pocket at the back).
-The Front Seat Base is stretched over and has a series of ''loops' and is supplied with elastic cord which is fed through each loop, pulled tight and tied off (this is the worst bit as the seat turntable gets in the way).
-The Rear Seat Back is stretched over and has several areas where it is velcro'd to itself (The rear of the seat cover also includes a big map pocket at the back).
-The Rear Seat Base is stretched over and has elasticated chord and velcro.

I am pleased with the material / fit / look of the covers and they were quite reasonably priced compared to some of the alternatives.

Thanks a lot, @Radio-active.
I've requested some samples to Ukatex, but it looks good from the images.
One last question: is the color you choose n.159 (Florenz/Grau)?

Thank you, again.

Yes, n.159 are the seat covers I ordered...
The only slight issue I had with Ukatex was navigating correspondence in German, so Google translate was essential but otherwise they were excellent.

Great, thank you.
Ahahaha... they must have changed someone in their offices because I wrote in english and they used the same language to answer me. Maybe they realized how many potential customer they could have in UK... ;)

Thanks for the old thread.... I'm also resurrecting it!

How ar your covers wearing?

I'm off to navigate the language barrier too as these look much better than the INKA ones

No noticable wear on my covers, but they may need to be removed for a wash over the winter
