    Default Car seat covers side airbag approved?

    Happy new year everyone,

    not sure if this is the right forum section, but I wanna get some nice car seat covers for my 08 vectra sri. Do the car seat covers have to be side airbag approved? If so, where is the best place to get some nice ones? Ones like the suede effect ones in halfrauds, but without the £70 price tag!

    Thanks for any info.

    Daz

    I picked up a set of covers tonight from halfords that say they are ok with drivers/passengers seat side airbags.
    They even have the rear seat cover that can be unzipped to lower the rear seat section 60/40 split. I have not tried to fit them yet and not sure of the quality.
    They only cost 15 quid. I looked at the 70 quid one's you mention and they are down to 40 quid now.
    I only really wanted the rear seat cover as i have a 3 year old that has a very bad grip on drinks /sweets /crisps etc.

    Thanx, maybe I'll have another look in halfrauds if they've gone down in price. Wanted seat covers cos, have twin girls, who like to be sick alot, and i'm usually pretty dirty from work!

    The next time you see a snap-on or mac tools van at a garage ask the salesman/van driver if he'll sell you a seat cover. They have the ones that are for seat covers with side air bags. That's how i got mine.
