Default Seat covers

Anyone know of any cheap seat covers that will work with the a8s front seats? Tried some generics from autozone but they wont work.

You can have custom made seat covers for $200-400. Just Google custom seat covers and a lot of options pull up. We have side air bags, so don't use generic seat covers.

With leather seats of just about any car, the first section to show wear and/or tear is the section of driver's seat or seat back closest to the door. The "section" is called a bolster. It's more likely if the driver is carrying a few extra lbs. In my case, it was because the previous owner was handicapped and had to go pull himself in from a wheelchair. I took the car to a small, local upholstery guy. For $100 bucks, he replaced the leather on the bolster and I can't even tell the difference.

Before spending money on seat covers, check out what an upholsterer will do. Look for a guy who does hot rot car customised interiors.

Probably easier to find a donor seat or skin. However, if anyone would know about perforated leather repair, try calling Larry Kosilla. He owns a company called Ammo NYC, as well as running the popular youtube channel. I got to speak to him for about 40mins a few years back about polishing my 2001 BMW 7 series. During our phone call, the call unexpectedly dropped, 5 mins later he calls me back and apologizes for the crappy signal. He is quite honestly one of the most down to earth people I have ever spoken to and loves when enthusiasts ask him questions.

J. C. Whitney & Co. (Everything Automotive) sells seat covers that the catalog says "Fits most cars".
Usually, that means not yours though...
