    Real leather seat covers aren't that expensive.

    Real Leather would be practical specially when you have kids. Knowing that whenever they spill something on the seats - it easy to wipe... not unlike cloth seat which absorbs almost anything....

    Any Upholsterer will be able to make custom leather seats for a reasonable price....

    Wouldn't real leather be actually harder to maintain? If it were real leather, then you'd have to worry about keeping it in tip-top shape by applying leather conditioner to it. Plus, if it were real leather, you'd have to worry about the wear on the leather from constant use.

    Wouldn't leatherette (or vinyl), on the other hand, be actually easier to maintain? No conditioners to worry about, and you wouldnt have to worry about leather wear (cracks, color loss and what not) cause vinyl is virtually indesctructable. Wipe it down and you're ready to go.

    Off the choices in the poll above, I personally prefer cloth seats (without seat covers). Just curious, as I have no experience with leather or vinyl seat covers (vs. having actual leather or vinyl seats, which I've had experience with).

    e46boi,

    in a way, kailangan ngang i-condition ang leather regularly or else mababakbak. but then, properly maintained, they'll still look new years after they were made and yung conditioning na yung cleaning nun... no more laundering and fitting seat covers. so in a sense, halos pareho din

    for me, cloth seat covers...

    Mas madali maglinis ng seat covers than seats... (nagsalita ang walang seat cover hehe)..

    Well, I have leather seat covers and I haven't apllyed any conditioner to it yet... Its been a year since I got it. Rain or shine okay lang.

    Before that I had leatherette seat covers and after a few weeks of use, some spots of "leatherette" have become bare and only the cloth part under it na lang natitira. Leatherette also isnt as durable as leather kasi just rub it with something and parts of vinyl letherette will tear off!

    As for seat covers, ok lang but they need to be washed regularly and they will tear and wear thin at the portions where you rub a lot, like at the door side of the driver seat.

    e46: Theoretically, that's true, leather needs to be conditioned from time to time and cleaned often to prevent cracking and discoloration (since it's an expensive invenstment, it's smart to do so). In terms of leatherette (I'll call it vinyl from now on), it's easier to maintain, but if the quality of the vinyl isn't suited for stretching upholstery use or if the surface is not snug in fit, it can deteriorate quite rapidly, especially around the seams.
