can anyone recommend cheap places to get

Fake black leather seat covers? need ones that fit nicely...dont want to have to keep rearranging them and I want them for the 2 front seats and the back seats...the seats and interior are cream so I'm conscious of marking them...plus I want black...are they all a standard size? saw some ones at Halfords for £39.99 but tbh dont want to pay that much...



also need good quality mats..ones at moment are basically carpets which obvo are gonna get dirty real quick, so want some good quality rubber ones at a good price for front and rear



Also gonna change the gear knob...its BEIGE! no way I am driving with beige...so I'm gonna get a bog standard black one from fleabay...I'm aware there are diff types and threads etc but what I really want to know is how hard are they to change? never done it before but I really hate the one it has now...its also far too slippery and I want something with decent grip...anyone ever changed one of these?

car is a PT Cruiser btw if it matters

Gearknobs are a doddle to change

firstly you need a good tight grip of the knob, then - hang on that just sounds wrong!!!

Sell it..........and buy a car with real leather seats and decent car mats and gearknob.

I'd just get the bus matey .... ;-)

when you get a new car you first tend to mother it and keep it clean,hoovered etc
after a few months it will start to look like a mcdonalds recycle bin!

shurrup you! Almost went for a Saab convertible...was nice and had cream leather interior...I'd only want black leather myself...the gear knob is shameful I admit it...I mean BEIGE???? Only beige Volvo's are cool!

Fake black leather seat covers?


make sure you get some good ones, some of the cheaper ones look very takcey, and when your pimpin dem _ _ _s, thats the last thing you want.

I take it you are at a guess in your mid 50's ( being a PT Cruiser ).

In which case SAGA do some great deals for car insurance and seat covers (tartan rugs)

so my old fella tells me:whistling:

true I suppose...but I have a feeling the £40 ones in Halfords will be about the same quality as £10 ones from the market....
