    Fraying of seat

    has anyone noticed some fraying of the seats at a rather early time in the wrx's life? My drivers seat is and has been fraying for about 2,000 miles now, I am at 8000 miles and i think thats kind of premature for fraying of the seat. Im tempted to take to dealer.. thanks guys.

    Driver's side seat cover replaced under warranty.

    Mine frayed right about where my checkbook sits in my rear pocket. Checkbook no longer resides in rear pocket.

    this is the second car I've owned that this has happened within the first 5,000 miles. I've narrowed this down to either the wallet in the back pocket or the khaki pants with the velcro on the pockets.

    They are "supposed" to take care of it this week, i had a family emergency and need my car to be with me all week incase i needed to leave. So, hopefully i will have the seat issue resolved by the end of this week.

    *then i can put my MBC on*

    I saw their site but they didn't have pricing info.
    If you get a price out of them, can you let me know?
    I'd be interested in getting their covers for the fronts as long as they can make something that matches fairly close to the stock interior colors.

    They can definitely match the fronts, and they are AWESOME (I have had 3 sets of the custom-fit wet okoles) but they are pricy. The last set I purchased was for my '94 Mustang GT in 2000 and they were ~$250.00 if I remember correctly.

    Great stuff though!

    P.S. In case you didn't know "okole" in Hawaiian = rump/posterior/booty/tush...

    Can anyone provide a "wet okole" link? sounds kinda interesting.

    In the meantime, my seat is wearing on the upper side bolster where I rub every time I get into the car. It hasn't started fraying yet, but it's looking like crap. You'd think they'd use some nice durable fabric....
