Not daily car. A dinosaur exhibit only. From the day bought the car... it only occupy 2 front seats. Rear seat still looks like new. Firm cushion. Was thinking to wrap the seat... an accessories in Puchong is asking for RM480 for all the seats. Ok price?
For a proper wrap, RM480 is too cheap.
If just covers, it depends on the material quality. Some have thicker material and multicolor material. I bought for my BLM in Nilai, RM280 inclusive installation. Quite some time ago. I found it after searching in mudah.

Mine all are been wrap with leather already,so juz wipe with some leather cleaner and is nice and clean.
I juz wanna find a shop can redo my driver seat.The cushion inside in quite not supprtive to me. other seat is still like new.
Any cushion shop can handle your request. Only one minor problem, either u leave your car there or remove the driver seat and send it to the shop. Either way, u wont be able to drive until the job is completed. Unless the shop willing to loan a seat or u got a spare seat.

Those online post is quite difficult to judge on the quality.

Agreed, thats why i go to see it personally before getting it installed. For RM280, suffice to say it does the job. Initially it was supposed to be RM 300++ with installation but the shop agreed at RM280 despite in their ad its mentioned need to top up for installation.

i did..... i tried a few sets... the more expensive ones (still cheap) are good, the very cheap ones are very poor
ones proper semi leather, those are not too bad... the while the very cheap ones are vinyl with some plastic/poly material inside

easy to sew? not too difficult, just get your orientation right then wrap it tight. If you do it up tightly, it will turn out pretty decent...

on my car its on abit looser cause its there to protect the original leather, so i kinda tried to sew it on in such a way that the thread never touches the leather on the inside. at the edges I didn't dew all the way to the end and on the bulgy bits i put in some cloth to pad the areas where the string would have touched the leather would have

Hahahahaha,mine is abit tall
shifting 2,4,R my elbow will hit my seat(long hand issue
So might consider to short abit to make it nicer to shift
your shifter is high? short shifter means the throw is shorter when u shift. i mean your shifter lever long, u can get those shorter lever from lancer or evo. but i think wira supposed to be same as lancer.

wrap it over your steering, some recommend those super thin doublesided tape (i say don't) then remember to sew tight.

dont buy the super dirt cheap ones, look through the comment sections, some have pics, long as the underside of the wrap isnt white, its ok... its the ones with white undersides which are real shitty
