    Can you not buy the covers themselves? I think they are in two pieces.

    Failing that, it's either hope you can get one from a breakers or see if you can get it re trimmed by someone like CSS.

    I think you might be right about that. Going to get a price for an elite door card tomorrow, so I may need to take some oxygen!

    It's leather for the seat facings and vinyl everything else.

    I think it's really poor of vauxhall when it's advertised as a leather interior not a leather/vinyl interior.

    I have an Elite too, it is Leather Velour (if that's how you spell it), sorry but I don't think many cars come with what people consider 'leather'.
