Customising the inside...

Hi ppl,

I've just registered with this forum, having bought a 1996 cinquecento last week. I've been impressed so far... the only thing i want to change really is the interior, particularly seat covers. Does anyone know of any good websites that they can reccomend? Not really sure what sort of covers will fit the cinquecento. I want to get ones that fit the whole seat and don't tie at the back.

Any ideas would be great. Thanks!

Welcome to the mad house.

Sorry i can't help with the seat covers question, most folks on here either fir buckets seats, or if they have an S or SX, then Sporting seats, or even Siecento seats, although there is a little extra work required, are the main upgrade.

Cheers

D

Welcome to FF

Do you mean recovering the seats? Check the yellow pages for local retrimming companies/upholsterers

If you mean seat covers, then you would have to cut the covers in all likelihood for the handle to tip the seats forward

Re: Customising the inside...

Well to be honest, i wasn't really sure what was the best thing to go for. I didn't want to spend loads on it, but i don't want it to look cheap and crappy either. If car seat covers would look good, then that would be cool because then we can do it ourselves pretty easily. I'm not sure how expensive it would be to get it upholstered. But i've been looking on websites to see what the car seat covers are like and i don't even know what type of seats my car has! Its a fiat cinquecento s i think. It not a sporting though.

Re: Customising the inside...

well, i used to have a set on my car till my mates spikey belt gauged a rip in one of em.. they where from argos they didn't tie at the back they just slipped on down (it has like lycra back to it) and it ties on the bottom of the seat, they cost 34.99 2 years ago - they where black pvc.. they looked better than the sporting ones - they should fit a normal shaped seat better than they fitted the sportings shapey seats..
