I’ve been waiting a year expecting that 2nd skin covers will be updated to have proper slits to match the access points on the seats themselves. But alas, no such luck.

I’ve contacted the shop by message and had 2 responses. One saying no isofix comparability and another saying that you’ve always been able to put in isofix seats as the 2nd skin covers and backs are separate and you can just lift the back up a bit.

Does anyone do this and is it really a viable option? We only have the child seats in the van if we take the grandkids out for the day in the van, so most of the time we will want the covers to look smart and look like second skins.

Any comments/advice would be appreciated and photos an extra bonus.

Hi guys. Thanks for the very prompt and helpful reply. It’s actually the GTX Premium covers (I thought they were all called 2nd skin, sorry) that we’re looking at. Is it the same for those?

Thanks so much for the fast attention to this. I know it’s not too long now until you get the GTIs in and am happy to wait for a response. If they do have slits I’ll be ordering straight away.

cheers guys, as usual great service and assistance.

Hi guys. I think the Premium GTI Fabric Seat Covers for the Ocean are in stock now. Could you please check for isofix slits and post a photo?
