Custom made seat covers

Hi I'm new to here, just purchased an F430 Spider 2006 Rossa Corsa with Cream/Champagne leather.

The seats are immaculate but I really want to protect them, does anyone know a company that will make custom made seat covers (snug fit) in same colour to leather and embroiled logo in head rest.

I'm really struggling to find a bespoke company that will do this.

I live in Manchester in the UK.

Could anyone kindly help?

David Taylor.

David- Welcome to Ferrari Life. Are you trying to get leather or cloth covers for the car? The factory covers will not suffice?

Hi Terry,

Thanks for the welcome!

I want something almost skin tight to the existing leather so I can drive the car, (leather or cloth) so I can keep the leather underneath in mint condition.

Obviously I'd like some design to these to keep the Ferrari theme.

I have official ferrari seat covers but they are more for storing the car and cannot be driven with them on.

David.

David- I have not seen any, but I would think it would be easy to get slip covers made by a furniture upholsterer. If they have a computer controlled sewing machine, stitching a Cavallino on the head rest area should also be easy. You might have to remove the seat for them to do the cover, but that is very simple on Ferraris.

Denim and buckles are the enemy, but even crema leather, if you take care of it and feed/clean will last well. Seems a shame to hide the beauty. My Crema interior looked the same the day I sold it as looked the day it rolled out of the factory.

I agree with Russell, best just use & enjoy your new F430 & not worry about the seat leather. Best tip is to clean, feed and apply a good leather protector in the 1st instance & then give them a simple wipe down after each journey & retreat if necessary & rest assured they'll be just fine

Yesterday's history, tomorrow's a mystery, today's a gift.....enjoy every minute!

That's for the replys!

I really do look after it and I'm a bit anal, as I get it fully detailed every 1 moth! Lol.

I think your right just enjoy and if I (ever) sell it, get them touched up for sale with a leather refurbished.

I just refurbished my seats.... I'm cheap so I did it myself but a good leather upholstery shop should be able to get them back to like new condition should you need that.

Current: 85' GTS QV
It's a simple process...... it's just complicated by human beings....
