    Default Leather Seats

    Has anyone got baggy leather seats in an Elite?
    They look very scruffy.
    If so anyone got a fix? or is it just my seats -only done 10000 miles.
    Thanks

    I went to look at one when looking for my vec and the leather had stretched a bit on that. It had done 12,000 miles. Maybe it is normal.

    Most leather seats can be re-tentioned, not sure about VX though, have a look under the seat for either a long wire loop that runs through little keyring type loops or staples which can be adjusted via screw type similar to a handbrake cable or some have springs on little adjuster loops, not definate re vauxhall but worth a look.

    Exclamation Leather seats

    Going to dealer tomorrow to see what they have to say. I expect it will be that trim isnt covered by warranty.

    My car is two years and 22.000 miles old and the leather is still very 'new'

    They should not be looking baggy/scruffy after 10,000.

    I suppose it might make a dirrerence if you get in and out of the car a lot as you will be putting ypur weight on the seat and making yourself comfortable, where as a high miler gets in then drives for many miles and gets out.........well just an idea anyway.
