Aftermarket seat covers for 850

Post by SonicAdventure » Sun Oct 13, 2019 8:40 pm

Hey everyone,

I have really nice shape cloth, manual heated seats in my 850, and I’d like to keep them that way. I’m not wild about the feel of the fabric so I was looking at basic pleather or other more slippery all-weather fabric covers at Wal-Mart, Advanced Auto etc.

Can anyone recommend a decent, lower cost aftermarket seat cover that fits these good and looks OK? I’m concerned about the part in the side where the little tray is located in lieu of the power controls and how a cover will work there.

I was also thinking about getting a pickup bench seat cover to cover the back, but it gets so little use I was also thinking about pulling the bottoms and storing them and just laying the back seats flat in the floor and getting a big mat to cover the whole back area.

Thanks,

sonic.

Your requirements are rather vague.

If ~$150.00 a pair is low enough for you there is a vendor on eBay that sells custom fit covers for the 850.
