There was a backing on the leather though correct? Like a thin layer of foam?
Yes thin layer of foam that wasnt any thicker than the dove grey seat covers i pulled off the seats initially.

im not sure what material they used with the Acura seat covers but if its the same as what I have than i think you are being a little dramatic with your description feeling of sitting higher. if you can feel like you are sitting higher over a few MM then you probably have OCD over some things lol.

My OCD is nothing compared to many on this forum. It could have been an install error of some sort, or maybe the foam was able to expand once the old leather was pulled off and it got back to its stock form. Either way, itís been a noticeable difference ever since.

Makes sense if the installer steamed your old foam (which they likely did) to help the skins fit better.
