Leather Seats

Just wondering if anyone has had their seats retrimmed in leather? I've been thinking about having mine done. I got quoted #1900 for a retrim in white leather with black jap symbols on the two front seats. Please post any pictures of anything similar or different styles of retrims. The US spec doesn't even come with real leather. So i'm assuming a lot of you have had it done. This IS synthetic plastic shit right????

I was thinking about new seats and then getting a retrim but thats just extra cost. Anyone know of some good leather cleaner instead? Thats what started me thinking about a retrim. Where my ass sits is starting to look a little grubby and discolored

I have a yellow GTS and I am going to get the outside of the seats trimmied in yellow so it will be two tone like the pic above.

I am going to pay about 600 for the whole job 1900 is way too much.

The leather that is used on the Celicas in the U.S. is real leather to my knowledge, it's just not as soft and supple as some people like leather to be. There are many different types of leather out there. It's not too logical to put something like lambskin leather in a sports car that costs around 20K, nor is it economically feisable.

Is this in response to my post? I'm not sure what you mean. In your first post, are you saying that the factory leather seats in the US aren't real leather?

Yeah, i'm from the UK. I was just pointing out that the US spec ones (pictured at the very top) are plastic. Thats why I thought a lot of you might have had them retrimmed. The next two (I know slightly large. I thought I reduced them) are the seats in my car. I was just showing that they came stock with real leather.

Anyway, what about the Carisma seats? Are they too OTT?

So, the picture of the US seats in the first picture that you posted, you claim is not real leather?

No, it's plastic. The 2000-2002 models in this country had the same plastic seats. Back in those days the car was also called the VVTLi190

Who told you it was plastic? If that were true, then Toyota would have a major law suit on its hands. wtf

The front of the seats are smooth leather, the back of the front seats are a synthetic material along with the backseats. The shifter and the steering wheel also have real leather on them. Some of the steering wheel is a synthetic and the door inserts and the parking break are a syntheic. The leather on the seats does suck though.
