    Default Signum owners..................

    Hey guys, due to being in construction i literally use my signum as a van, aka seats dropped fully all week and heavy ish items scattered all around the back (sheeted up obviously though)
    and i pulled the seats up today to give someone a lift and the leather is really really getting ruined from pressing on the back seatbelts, that much so that im really trying not to drop the seats but its hard.

    basically all the leather arms of the chairs so to speak are just imprinted and the leather that runs next to your legs is getting really badly worn where its pressing on something,

    it was absolutly pristine when i got the car but im scared im ruining it,

    has anyone else solved this problem or am i gunna have to get a Vec estate with a proper boot lol

    it's not a van mate ! Treat it like one and you can't expect anything but wear n tear. Simples.

    You could swap your leather trim with my cloth trim then you'll not have to worry about the leather !!!

    I noticed the same mate when I drop the seats and leave them down they press into each other and leave indents in the seats... right pain so I always avoid leaving them down over night and that tends to stop it happening. If you can put them back up as soon as you unload the car
