Just read through from page 4... I was looking at ordering new reborn leather seat covers for my fg from proseat. I know they f**k you around for ages, but you never really mentioned the quality and why you choose to go au over the proseat el covers?
I have the aided assurance of living just 20-30min away from their qld store, so would go up and check them put before making purchase... But aside from getting f**k around... Is it worth it for the quality of supplied covers?

Cheers!

I chose to get the AU seats for a few reasons:
1. I still hadn't received the Proseat Covers at that point, and was doubting that I ever would.
2. I had done enough research to know I could fit the AU seats without too much hassle.
3. The AU seats were in pretty good nick, and they were REAL leather.

The quality of my covers were pretty damn good actually, and I reckon they will look fantastic on if fitted properly.

I have recently seen an AU Fairmont that had Proseat Covers fitted (Beige Colour) and they actually looked and felt pretty damn good ...the overall look and feel doesn't come into it's own until they are fitted.

I would say go for it if you are prepared to put up with the hassle of dealing with Max, and you are going to get them professionally fitted.

I tried messaging proseat on eBay and got no reply. I also read their terrible feed back and I will never buy anything from them regardless of how good their product is.

Depends how you drive it ;)

I don't drive her sedately, nor do I rape her...somewhere in-between.

Yeah it's getting into the right gear at the right time, and not testing the limiter too much, lol
