Replacement Seat Covers

Recommended Posts

I have a 1995 Lexus LS400 and my front seat covers are just wearing out. I'd like to ask the forum members the following questions:

1) Are the seats in 1996/1997/1998 LS400's the same as in 1995's?

2) Can anyone make a recommendation regarding high quality replacement OEM covers that will look like the originals?

3) Can anyone make a recommendation regarding high quality seat covers (i.e. sheepskin) with will work temporarily in the event that the OEM seat covers prove prohibitively expensive?

4) Can anyone make a recommendation where I might look for replacement used front seats that are in good condition?

Any help would be greatly apprecaited. Thank you!

Jim

Seats should be the same up to 2000, but have different options and therefore different plugs for the electrical. Verify that first though.

Katskinz leather upholstery is a better than OE replacement, but they're sold in kits so you'd need to buy and redo all the seats for a match. OE covers are incredibly expensive but I have seen one or two through the years on ebay being sold cheaper by a dealer or someone else.

Finally, a local upholstery place may can do a patch/repair or just replace the damaged covers for a fair price, I had a customer that did his SC400 front seats in a leatherette material, similar to high grade vinyl, for $300, that's far cheaper than leather anywhere.
