    Looking for seat covers for the VF SV6 and I found these.
    Has anyone purchased them before and if so what are they like? do they look good on a VF specially if you have red stitching on the car seats/trim, and or red stitching Motorsports front and rear Mats.
    Yes the mats are GOOD!!

    The link for the seat covers. On the main page they say it fits the VF

    Mainly I'm only interested in Front seat covers as nobody ever sits on the rears

    PU leather can have a habit of flaking away over time making anything covered in it look rubbish with the flaky material covering everything around it making it also look rubbish.

    Yes they are cheap for 4 seats but if I get them I only will use the front seats only. I like them because they have the red outline that matches the trim and the stitching on the car + also match my new mats on the floor. Another thing the car has never been outside for long period in the Sun (less that 1 hour.)

    I had a look at them they look alright but I could not see anything saying they work with the side airbags in the seats which could be a issue.

    This is the reply I got from the ebay seller.

    "Quote"
    "Dear friend,

    Thanks for your message,it is just cover the seat ,not cover with side Airbags.

    You would think that making a seat cover and selling them in Australia that they would be illegal to sell them if they don't comply to Australia rules

    Best regards"

    Agree !! But how much imported stuff, not just automotive, is not fit for purpose, dangerous, or 'dumped' appears here now that we are incapable of even manufacturing a light bulb.
    The list is endless ……. imported food that is contaminated with ????? whatever should not even be considered. But people buy it.

    Seems to me that lots of VF front seat covers on ebay are not Air Bag friendly. Hummm

    By the look at it It seems that VF owners do not have seat covers. I expected this because of Air Bags on the seats and the lack of available compatible seat covers to suit.

    There are good for me + I like the Black and red together. I will get them from Supercheap the next time I go there or might ring first to see if they have them.
