Default Great seat covers

I got the best lambs wool seat covers from SAM's club for $30 each front seat.

They are tan or grey. I got the grey. Awesome.

Cool in summer and warm in winter.

No backseat covers though.

I also have these for my LS2 2000

They are in my wife's new 2004 ion.

I got mine from my dealership today... the same neoprene seat covers as BlueIonDriver, except in black/gray.

Only 120US from my dealer! Apparently there's been a price drop! Picking them up tomorrow, can't wait! Guess i'll have to order the custom back seats soon as well, but first gotta pay my tuition... $8000 for 8 month tuition alone... crazy...

BlueIonDriver, is there anything I shoudl watch out for during the install? I can do it without taking out the front seats right?

THanks.

the front ones are a pain in the arse, and expect to sweat, cuss and hurt your hands a bit..... I hope you have small hands...... you have to get those covers in between the two peices......
doing the front ones, I installed mine and my gfs right after another and took me about two and a half hours for both......
take into consideration about 20 minutes was spent figuring out how to take the head rests off lol lol........
the fronts are not a HUGE deal........
the rear seats you HAVE to take out..... when i started installing them on the back, i fugured i could just leave the backs of the seat on, but its a big pain, the rear seats are SO easy to take out, so might as well just do it........ careful not to bend the frame of the SEAT part in the back...

Alright, doesn't seem too bad, if my body wasn't already aching and sore from two straight days of exercise in the gym... lol...

Guess I'll msn you later for more details once I get the covers and take a closer look at my seats...

Finally made the decision between aftermarket leather and the covers, especially given the price drop... MUCH cheaper than leather... and probably cooler for the summer as well...

Went by the dealer today all excited about picking up my seat covers, and turns out they told me about the wrong ones. I thought they had black w/ gray inserts, but turned out it was only black w/ gray embroidering... the whole cover is black, not black gray like BlueIonDriver's black blue...

Needlessly to say, it wasn't really what I wanted, so I'm back to the drawing board looking for some nice seat covers, thinking about getting some custom made from the same place that did BlueIonDriver's back seat covers.
