Default Best seat covers

Looking for quality seat covers that are durable but affordable. Any suggestions, warnings, or observations?

Bought these a year ago, they're a little slick which makes it easier to slide in and out of the car. I have black interior, the covers blend in well with the rest of the cars interior. It comes with an added 1/4 padding, I slipped in an additional 1 inch more foam for added comfort. Only negative thing was it took 7 weeks to get to me. I guess it was a slow boat! http://www.topcar-athens.com/product...ar_seat_covers

Do a search on this site. A lot of peeps seem to like Wet Kole covers.

How are these with the seat heater? Does it make the high setting usable?

The seat heater question was on my mind also. I usually get black interiors, but with $5000 off sticker on the last 2014 on the lot, I went with tan.

Living in Orlando, Fl no I don't use the heater. More concern for comfort.

You did ask for "Quality seat covers".

Was it quality or value? I like value, but I think you and I agree seat covers will have a negative effect on the OEM seat heaters.

My Wet Okole seat covers don't seem to effect the seat heaters much at all.
-10 this morning, parked outside all night, 10 minutes into my drive I had to switch the heaters to low..

I'm sure it takes a bit longer to feel the warmth, but still works great.

6 months after install, I think the Wet Okole are worth every penny.
