Anyone ever used any of them? And if you have, are they any good?

I have not seen these before and would be interested to see them in situ.

The fact that you have to glue them over the originals is a little off putting.

Looks a bit chavtastic. Id only fit it if the original part underneath was badly damaged

Yeah pretty much agree.The leather quality looks a bit poor on the armrest,even has a stain - and thats the advertisement pic.Also the stitching is all photoshopped,so what it actually looks like irl is anyones guess.Would be interested in a review if anyone takes the plunge.

They make them with almost any colour stitching you can think off so I am guessing they have photoshopped the picture to illustrate the colours they do. I have an old centre console and old arm rest that are quite shabby so I might try the arm rest cover as it isn't that expensive and see how it is then maybe try the centre console if it is any good. Not sure about it being chavvy... I thought leather would look better than plastic but all depends on the quality.

The firm that does these also does some stuff for "classic cars". I have a Triumph Vitesse and they do a dash top cover and door cards in the same style. I often wonder what the quality/fit would be like.

I think I'm going to have to get the arm rest cover just to see what the finish and quality is like.

I used to have a 68 2.0 Vitesse in old English white; none of the door locks worked so I had to leave the quarter light open and let myself in that way, heater never worked so when it was cold I had to roll back the carpet and lift up the transmission tunnel to get heat off he engine blowing through the car but still a great car to own and drive. In fact one of the few cars I would consider selling my GTV to buy.

Noted. I took mine off and Plasti-dipped it. Thing is it has already marked since. The Plasti-dip (deliberate I think) does not stay attached that well.
