    Mate you can get Neoprene ones for just the fronts from Holden for $350, just have a look at the accessories page, note though that they don't recommend seat covers be fitted to CalaisV due to the seat warmers. I think it's probably the case that they will reduce the effectiveness of the warmers rather than any safety concerns, but something to be aware of:

    Yeah I've seen the Holden genuine ones but aren't a huge fan of them, both aesthetically and due to the non-coverage of the side bolsters. It's primarily a work car and my shirt can get pretty grubby if I'm scoping out a fire damaged property or the like, so full coverage is my preference.

    Also they're pretty expensive at $350 for the fronts only. The PSC covers are $500 for front and rear. Decided to take a leap of faith with them so will post up some photos and my thoughts once they arrive.

    Unlikely that I'll ever use the seat warmers so not fussed if they're not effective. While I doubt there's a safety issue with using them under seat covers, it's possible it could cause the seat cover backing to adhere to the leather and cause damage when removed? I won't use them anyhow so no issue.

    What about the seat airbags? You can't put seat covers on cars with seat airbags.

    The listing in @Moph 's link above says they are airbag compatible. Definitely something to be wary of though, particularly with aftermarket products.

    Some of the air-bag compatible covers have a slit down the side; others have break-away stitching. The PSC covers are of the break-away stitching variety.

    Yes, Spotify streams perfectly from my Android phone. Through the Bluetooth icon in Mylink.

    Got me stumped, but if I was to take a guess, I'd suggest it might be something to do with the middle seat isofix anchorage perhaps..?

    My Calais V and SSV redline both have them. I think it is part of the Sat nav antenna and works with the roof antenna. GPS Signal?

    I just looked it up. It is for the key fob transmitter to open and shut doors and start the vehicle.

    The seat covers arrived last Tuesday and I got them fitted yesterday - pretty impressed with overall fit and finish.

    There is a small issue with the ISOFIX points not being accessible but their service has been brilliant thus far; positive response to my eBay message just a few hours after I sent it (on a Sunday) and a phone call this morning to confirm the issue. Next step will them be advising postage details so I can send the seat base back to them for modification - super impressive.
