Default Has anyone used Lseat.com?

Has anyone bought new seat skins from Lseat and have photos or opinions to share? Seems like a reasonable price for someone who can't sew. I was thinking black or black/tan combo might look good with my tan interior. The black weather mats in the front already give it a nice 2-tone look

Also, are the leather and cloth seats from a 940 a different shape from each other? I'd prefer to switch to cloth skins on my currently leather seats

A friend did, said they were decent, never saw them in person.

Lseat makes a good product. I've done a couple of cars for others using the vinyl seats and have seen black leather ones in another car. They look great. Note these were for 240 Volvos. The black leather was not shinny and not as thick as the original. For that matter the vinyl covers were not as thick either as OEM but fit was good. Can't say anything about cloth or for a 900 series car but I would think they should be fine.

I put their leather front seats in my 944, with a write up of the process in my car's build thread linked below. All in all a huge upgrade over trashed seats but not as good as nice OEM ones. The material is not quite the same and the fit was a bit odd in places. Heat gun and a wet cloth helps a lot with wrinkles/baggy fit.

Their v70r and 850 seat covers are super nice. I’d venture to say that they’re nicer than Volvo Parts in some applications. Plus they do a lot of color and material options

Thanks for the reviews everybody!

I asked about material other than leather and they said they can do suede alcantara as well. Thinking about giving this material a shot. I'd like to stay away from leather

Just be aware it can be a bigger pain to clean:

I did for some recaros. Took 3 tries and 6 months to get right. Quality is good. For a stock seat I'd do it again in a heartbeat.

I recovered my pair of Recaro LS and the rear seat in my 242 with Lseat leather. The value is pretty impressive. Low price, nice quality and they fit pretty well. I think mine would look a bit better if installed by a professional, but they are pretty great for $700 all in.
