Nothing exudes personal taste than a one’s choice of seat covers. You can of course, opt to customize your car seat covers or simply to remain with the universal one your car came with. But why drive a car with seat covers that a hundred other Porsche car owners like you have when you can stand out with customized car seats? The whole idea sounds like fun, and it is! However, there are a few things you should know first before going for customized Porsche seat covers. Read on to learn more.
Types Of Porsche Car Seat Covers
There are so many types of car seat covers you can choose from when looking for options that can best customize your car. All the options you have will however boil down to two main options – slip on Porsche seat covers and tie on Porsche seat covers.
Slip-on seat covers are more popular than tie on seat covers for several reasons. For starters, they are cheaper. They are also very easy to maintain. All you need to do with a slip on seat cover is to slip it over the seat and secure it with an elastic bottom designed make sure the cover does not slide off. Tie on seat overs on the other hand feature several bands that makes it easy for you to wrap the cover over the seat and tie it at the back or at the bottom part of the seat. There are, of course, other styles which are not as popular as these two but are worth considering. They include split style covers, bucket seat style covers for individual seats and bench seat style seats.
The options here are endless. You can choose anything from animal prints and bold stripes to solid colors. Again, everything here boils down to personal preferences. You can for instance, go for a camouflage colors so as to end up with a rugged effect or go for classical patterns in solid colors such as red, brown, black or grey.
Choice Of Fabric
Ease of maintenance as well as the costs involved should be the two main concerns in your mind before choosing a car seat cover. Leather stands out as the most popular option when it comes to Porsche. It simply complements the model. But as much as it exudes elegance, class and sophistication, it is expensive. There is an upside though. Leather simply lasts for long. It is also easy to maintain. Its immediate alternative, faux leather is just as good. It is easy to clean though it doesn’t last as long as genuine Porsche leather does. It is easy to maintain solely because it is waterproof. Other options include vinyl and neoprene which are both affordable but not as durable as leather and faux leather.
Point To Note
There are a few pointers that should always inform your choice of seat covers apart from your own personal preferences and even budget. If you have children for instance, you might want to go for a car seat cover material that is not just durable but also easy to clean. You may also want to choose something that isn’t too colorful or too detailed so as to easily maintain a laid back yet classy look.
