Hi everyone,
I'd ordered these Clazzio seat covers from Spencer/Bean Garage and they arrived right on time (eight weeks) yesterday at my doorstep in Ontario, Canada. Since my back seats are folded down 90% of time so i opted for the front seats only. They come with full picture instructions and accessories. The covers are number coded as well so you won't mix them up.

Installation was pretty straight forward & it took me a little less than 1.5 hours to do it. Unfortunately I had teared the perforated leather a little (less than 0.5 mm) when I tried to push the cover thru the headrest stay. No big deal though since it was covered up pretty well and not noticeable at all. Installing the headrest cover was a little tricky since the fitment was so tight. But I'd found that the trick was to keep squeezing the headrest foam into the cover.

The quality is very good, seams sewed perfectly in red, fitment is tight perfect. Love it ...... Here are some pictures to share with you guys ......

Cheers
Yamamoto

Very nice! I am hoping for a group buy ;) How does the center leather feel? What is with the memory foam? Does it really give it much added feel?

The centre perforated leather is soft but not too soft so I hope there will be no sacking down the road. Honestly I'm not sure about the memory foam, time will tell if it is memory or not, I'll report back in a couple of week. The foam is about 0.5 to 0.75 cm and indeed give you a cushioned feel but it also raise the sitting position. This is the only con to me, I'm sitting in the lowest position already and still find it too high for my taste since I'm so used to sit like almost on the floor in my MINI or Cayman. Now with the cover, the sitting position is even higher, not by much but I can tell the difference. However the big plus is the armrest, it feels so much softer with the foam. My arm is finally not resting on a block of wood :D
Feel free to PM me for any question ...
Cheers

Nice pics Yams. I wasn't very hip on getting them, but after seeing your pics, I'm rethinking it.

Are they approved for use with the side airbags that are installed in the seats? I read somewhere that covers can interfere with proper deployment if they aren't made right.

I was told by the dealer not to put seat covers on as the side of the seats in my SL have airbags in them which yu can see a small tag that says airbag I think So what happens with these covers on the seats..how is the airbag suppose to deploy ??
They look great but judging on how much plastic is on this thing I need to know the cage with all the air bags ect Im sitting in is gonna be my saving grace in an accident when all the plastic around me is blown to smitherines ! LOL
Can you share with us what you know about this or dont know?
Thanks :)

Clazzio designed them to work with side impact airbags.

How long did it take you to install them?

oh wow! spencer is on here! I bought two sets from him, one for the insight which turned out awesome and one for my cube still waiting for the 8-10 week lead time.

my friend installed insight covers and said it took him 4 hours to do it because the headrests were so tough. I don't believe him lol.
