    Question Seat Trim

    Hi All,

    I'd like to hear from those of you - if any - who have used the trim kits from places like Britpart/Exmoor and the likes.

    I know I can go down the road of seat covers, or simply going to an auto upholsterer to redo the seats, but I'm more interested in the experiences of those who have tried the DIY kits available.

    Any feedback on these would be appreciated.

    Cheers

    Has anyone seen the difference, first hand, between the Exmoor and the Britpart seat covers? They don't appear to be exactly the same.
    Also, would the jump seats at the back of the Defender use the same kit as the centre seat (as sold in other models, but I've not seen any locally).

    Cheers

    The Exmoor seems better quality but who sells them?

    Simply based on images/videos that I've seen, I agree that the Exmoor kits look like they're better quality.

    Even if I have to pay more it will still be less than a genuine part that I most likely can't afford.

    Did you find a solution? I have been looking at the Exmoor range, but based on exchange rate, vat, duties & freight, it seems an insane amount to spend. I am looking at the Caprivi Heritage seat covers, they look functional and well fitting, just waiting for a quote when they open in Jan.

    Hi Landyman,

    No, not yet. It's also been moved down the priority list for the time being.

    Cheers
