exmoor forward facing rear bench trim??

has any one installed it. I just did the front seats and rear bench. the front seats look ok.

but the rear bench sucks. the capeting under the bench is a low quality material. and the carpeting is cut wrong for the front legs, its offset wrong. so its tight on 1 leg and than there is gap about 1-1.5" on the other side. and yes its installed properly.

is this 1 bad cover or are they all shity like that?

what did those cost? Do you have any pics other that those? I was wondering if any one had tried these yet. I have thought of doing those seats as well.

the rear bench upholstery was $400. thats just 2 covers, no foam. overpriced i think. the front seats were reasonable at $180 each with foam.

it looks stock except under the rear bench. i will take some photos of it later this week.

These seats were one-offs for the NAS right? I'm not surprised they have sizing issues. The green carpet underneath does look better.

the seats were NAS only, but I don't think they were one of.
I installed a used seat into my d90 into existing mounting points
and it fit pefectly. So there was standard set for them. I
want know if my cover is made wrong or are the are all wrong. If I exchange
my cover will I get another shity cover in return?

That is pretty shoddy work by Exmoor.
I ordered their top-of-the-line mohair top for my Series III and the one they sent fit so horribly that I had to take it to a convertible top maker to get trimmed/re-fit to be snug on my truck.

i wanted to updated the post i started.
rovers north took care of it in a couple of weeks. they let me have it fixed by a local upholster shop and gave me store credit to cover it. here are some photos. overall i am happy with the covers.

Did they say Exmoor was going to do anything to the product going forward for a better fit, or no?
