Im curious what the quality and leather content is? I imagine it cant be that good considering the price.
its pleather

but that does not mean its trash.... could fit real snug for all i know, but again, from my research all have said its not leather ( id assume much like my black leather seats in my GK tiburon) which were alright

u might want to check with your local upholstery shop and get a price quote from them. you would probly get better colors and better material.

Ok,so the ad lies. I know most leather seats have varying amounts of actual leather in them,but apperantly these are all pleather? In that case,a set of Catskins will go for around 750 or so,so hats not much of a bargain at all.

Im actually curious how they compare to ordering them direct. (not those pleather ones,but real ones from one of the reputable leather seat skin manufacturers) I was planning on getting some. I wanted ones with a very dark red inset,but to make that work I would have to replace the headliner and really,also the trim on the pillars (I figured I could use the black ones from the 2011) or it would look wrong. I think the best option is going to be grey to match the headliner,not my favorite,but I think it would look pretty good.

Hmmm, I never considered switching out my seats, but I really don't like the cloth. So there's like actual shops that put leather on car seats? What type of shop would I search for to find something like that? Because I do not even know what you would call a shop like this.

This is interesting, as soon as I picked up my 2011 R-Spec, the first thing I thought of was how much it would cost to switch the cloth inserts to leather. If i ever remember to get a quote, i'll post it up :)

I do Katzkin leather kits at work.
They use a very high quality leather, and the fit/finish of it is perfect. Very much worth the money. All the hog ring locations are prefect, seams are double stitched, and sometimes triple stitched.
If you want a leather kit, Katzkin FTW!
