Did a lot of research online and offline. Have visited some retail car shops in delhi, got many unbelievably high quotes. Even went to karol bagh, prices varied by huge margins. Gathered some intel regarding the various types of material used for seat covers. Somebody suggested me to have nappa leather seats. And from there my online research started.

So while reading about nappa leather i found a post on team bhp, where a member has got some pretty good work done in his verna. The catch was that these guys also provide other car interior/exterior services. Online reviews for these guys are amazing too.
Since TUV300 doors are pretty dull and only single beige color which used to get dirty so easily, so i decided to have some work done by professionals.

I talked to this guy and went there to get the job done. First thing i noticed, was that they quite professional. I could see that they were very careful while removing seats from the car. They suggested me various designs and after choosing one, all the seat covers, steering cover and door panels were stitched in front of me piece by piece. I even got the rear seat under thigh support improved through extra padding ;)

Material : I first decided to have nappa leather cover but later on changed my mind and chose merc leather which is thicker, heat resistant and hence more durable and this material is pretty premium looking as well.

Seat cover design is the copy of new bentley seats.
Presenting the new look below :)

I feel having seat covers in TUV is necessary as - Now i feel less body roll, as due to bucketing of seats i remain well positioned and not tossed in the corners.

Amazing fit and finish, looks so much premium. The work on door penal is very neat and looks superb. Congratulations for new covers. how much did this work cost you?

Hi Sharad

Breakup is as follows:

Seat cover + steering cover = 12K. (steering was removed from the car and the cover was stitched over it)
For door panels its 3K.

Cost basically varies with material used, it was a total 3K less for nappa.

Honestly, they look good but are not comfortable. The guy who did it actually welded them to the seat and are placed a little high. So after 5 minutes my shoulder gets tired.
It is a factory near kirti nagar furniture market. They make custom bull guards, side steps and arm rests etc and provide service to only government VIP vehicles mainly. My friend knew these guys and took me there. They are not so professional and prices are high as well.
