Just wanted to let ya'all know about these custom seat covers, Some of you might already know the company "seatcoverfactory" well they have a new website specifically for Scions now http://www.scionshoppe.com

I have been working with Jan on a custom order and their service is top notch. I have a set on my box now but I'm getting new ones will post photo's of the new one's when I get them. They got a few new styles as well as custom shifts boots, shift knobs and much more.

email Jan she is very helpfull. Check it out http://www.scionshoppe.com

I also think they are working on door panels too.

They are still working on the door panels and shift boots. If they are as good of quality as the seat covers themselves, they will rock!

I've had mine in since January and I still love 'em!

What type of material are the covers move of? Are they sturdy enough for a daily driver, and are they washable?

The outside material is velour, the inserts are vinyl. The instructions I got with mine say they are washable. Even with mine being white they stay clean. (although mine isn't a daily driver)

Thanks Mark! I like the way yours looks, can they make them in vinyl only?
I didn't ask. I'm not sure they would fit as well since the vinyl doesn't stretch as much as the velour. They are very accomdating though, wouldn't hurt to ask.

Cool. That is a good point about the stretch factor though.

DTrain.........they don't make them in all vinyl. That's what I wanted and I just asked like yesterday....They do have a sh!t load of colors and different ways to make yours look different from sombody else's which is what I like........

Dew....... They fit REALLY good. Surf has had his for a while hopefully he can answer the question better. For slip on covers I don't think anything comes close.

Do yourself a favor email Jan........ [email protected]

They are VERY helpful just like surf said.........Don't forget to tell them Jon from Club xB sent ya :D

This is why I won't do seatcovers. I have yet to see a seatcover that doesn't look like a seatcover. There is always that telltale wrinkle ... :(

Man it sucks not being able to get on here during the day anymore and post up. The seat covers do not wrinkle up and the fit is still as good as the day I put them on. As far as one post here that said they are hot and sticky like leather in the summer, have you ever had leather seats? They stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter. If I could afford it I'd have leather in mine right now. The vinyl doesn't breathe as well as the leather does so they will be a little warmer in the summer but that's what I have A/C for.

My door panels are not done...yet!

One thing I forgot to mention. Unlike most seat covers, these use buckle and cinch straps to hold them on from front to back. The material goes all the way under the edge of the seats. There is a super strong velcro strap that goes from side to side. Each seat bottom has three straps holding them on. The seat backs have the velcro at the bottom of the rear to hold them on. They cover the entire back of the seat.

And they have all the cutouts already done for the seat hooks and the headrests.

Look at me, blah blah blah, sorry, haven't posted all day long and took it out on this one! :D

I have to admit that those ones look very nice and look well made ... however, I guess I just really want to get my seats custom done, so I'd make up any excuse why nothing is better than the real thing! :p

Can't argue with that logic!
