Aren't the holes for the seat lever different?

I'm at these same crossroads. There is a third option, Gahh, but they are ridiculously expensive.

I've sent request for swatches to lseat, autoberry, and Gahh. lseat and autoberry acknowledged the request but that was over a week ago and I've yet to see a swatch. Autoberry just hit the week mark, lseat has been almost two weeks. Gahh didn't even acknowledge.

I heard lseat is cheap and autoberry better but I'm not buying anything until I see material. I'm not looking for cheap.

Fortunately a mile from my house there is a quality upholstery shop so I will likely end up there.

Update: Found an interesting thread that went exactly no where. Either died or no one bothered reporting the results.

Cliffs, I'm pretty much sold on autoberry. Lseat leather is casino carpet by comparison.

Recieved my sample today. Quality blows the lseat leather out of the water, no contest. It is a very soft, smooth grain leather very similar if not identical to napa leather. The lseat felt synthetic, rough and had a very poor hand. The color on the autoberry says it is Imola and it looks like it, nice color and doesn't look like a generic red like lseat. I have no Imola to compare too but I suspect it is very close. Over impressed with it, hopefully it is as durable and lasts like oem.

How long before you received the sample from autoberry? I'm getting close to two weeks. My email request was acknowledged.

Took 9 days. I'd email them again.
Did you throw it away? They sent it to me in an unmarked security envelope with no return address. Almost tossed it thinking it was a cc offer or junk mail.

Not yet haha. Got a few other things I decided to take care of, will probably be a while. But when I do, these will likely be it. Sample was very nice.

I am going to order from Autoberry early next week. I figure by the time I get the covers and schedule with the upholstery shop for installation it will be 4 to 6 weeks.

I will post an update upon completion.

The seats pictured at Autoberry are convertible seats, which is what I would need. How do you identify that you want coupe or convertible?

I had sent an email to autoberry asking for confirmation they had seat covers for a convertible with the sliding thigh bolster. Autoberry replied they indeed did have these. When I order I am going to re-confirm and stipulate in an outside email the specifics of what I am looking for. Their site leaves something to be desired but they seem to be legit. At your own risk.
