Leather seats for Protege5

Post by huskyjackal » Thu Mar 06, 2008 2:52 pm

I can't afford these right now, but I'm just seeing if they're out there or if I have to dig through a junkyard to find 'em.

I have an 02 Protege5 with the cloth seats and I'd really like leather. Or fake leather. Anything, really, that's leather-like or leathery or leatherish.. yup. What's the going price for something like this?

You're amazing, thank you for the link!

I saw those on eBay, but I would want to see them in person or pics not from the ad, I'm skeptical of eBay junk. :D But definitely might be worth a shot, plus in hot weather, removable FTW.

eBay isn't always junk. A lot of the guys who sell on eBay also sell through major companies, but it costs a lot of money for a big flashy web page and web hosting, especially if you need e-commerce stuff like credit cards or online checks. And even more expensive if no one knows you exist. Meanwhile, everyone knows eBay, they already have all that e-commerce stuff integrated, and it's not expensive at all. (If you don't sell anything, you don't pay anything.)

In fact, the company I bought my exhaust from came from the same guys who build exhausts for Promotion Tuning. I just got it cheap off eBay ($500 for this with a high flow cat and stainless steel).

Good point, Nychold - I love eBay, have a horrible addiction. :) when it comes to things like custom accessories though I want to make absolutely sure they fit right and look good, I've bought a few things before that looked WAY different than advertised and had to be sold/given away because they weren't at all what I wanted. :D But it may be worth the shot, it's cheap compared to buying all new seats!
