    Leather Seats in the WRX

    Anyone install some leather seats in an '02 WRX wagon? I'm definitely going to have it done, but I can't decide on the colors and type. I'm thinking of Black with Grey inserts with a grey WRX logo. If you have any pictures of the finished product and any comments on the different materials (suede, perforated) and seat heaters I would love a little insight... I'm going to have them installed by a pro, I am a little too sloppy with glue

    Do a search, the covers have been discussed a few times. I think M Roadster+WRX has them in his and they look very nice.

    Leather is good!

    We have the red and black leather seats. I posted a bunch of pics here already, so I won't waste space and repost them. But, if you do a search for my posts, you should find what you're looking for. We don't have the heated seats. Overall, we love them. Adds a bit of luxury feel to the car. Plus they feel so good on your bum.


    Good luck.

    I installed mine and thought it was fairly easy. The massage units were the only hard part. I sugest a dark WRX so it is easier to keep clean.
    Ride on!

    Leather seats?

    Anyone know any good aftermarket companies who will put leather in the new age impreza in the LA area. Suggestions and maybe pics would be great!! I've heard of companies offering two tone leather colors. Just wanted to see what color combinations looked nice.

    Smile WRX Leather Seats

    Get a custom leather interior from www.atd1.com. I purchased my custom leather kit from them for my '02 WRX. I was extremely satisfied with the company and they were very knowledgable about helping me design my kit. I did a custom 2-tone interior and it looks awesome...fits like factory. They were also able to hook me up with a local installation facility. I got my kit for a really good price...$650 plus shipping for the kit and it was only $100 to 2-tone it...totally worth it.

    you sure? I heard with leatherseats.com that the side airbags remained intact.

    What I want is new fabric covers. Wonder how cheap that would be.

    The '03 WRX we bought had dealer-installed leather. (they actually farmed it out to a local leather shop of course)

    Black leather with a carbon-fiber pattern on certain sections, plus 'WRX' embroidered in the rally blue. Very nice, very
    tight, with side-impact bags intact. Leather also in the doors too. Completely changes the feel of the car! Very sweet.

    I have some pictures in my digital camera - I'll post them once I've downloaded them to my PC.

    Sorry, but I don't know which shop they used. I could probably find out though (Gerald Subaru in Naperville, IL).
