    Hi,

    Wondering if anyone has purchased the Wet Okole seat covers for their Model S. I want to buy a set for my front seats. My leather is Tan. If anyone has the Wet Okole covers how do you like them and what color did you order.

    Thanks,

    Mark

    I recall reading somewhere (may be in the manual) that installing aftermarket seat covers is "prohibited". They might block certain airbags or something.

    Yes I saw that in a couple of threads but the Wet Okole's seem to have that under control according to other posters

    The Wet Okole seat covers have stitching that will tear easily if the airbags are deployed--you just have to insure they are for your make and model of car. I've never heard of anyone regretting purchasing them.

    I had them for over a year and a half. Both front and rear. I love them they fit perfectly lood good and still look like new. I am a mechanic and my car interior needs protecting also have a dog that rides in the car every day. I highly recommend them.

    Suprkar,

    Got the fronts and like them.

    How did you get the backs installed?

    Do you have a link to exactly what you bought?
    How much was the set, and how much for installation?

    Will they harm the leather underneath in any way?
    Did you put them over the tan leather?

    Thanks, Gary

    Hi Gary,

    I ordered them from the Wet Okole web site and installed them myself. Took about 1 hour to do the install. Would take about 30 minutes next time. The only mainland store is in Costa Mesa and I think if you order from them the install is free. I live in Tucson, so not an easy option. I will be in Carlsbad, CA this spring for vacation and am thinking of getting the rear seat covers.

    I put the covers over my Tan seats, I do not think they will harm the leather.

    Screen print of my order (price is for both front seat covers):

    We have Wet Okele seat covers both front and back. In fact, Wet Okele's pattern was developed using our car, the red one in their gallery. We have been very happy with them so far. There was a question where the side impact air bags were (in the pillar or in the seat) so Wet Okele made hidden cutouts in the covers to accommodate airbags if they are indeed in the seats. One note, since the buckles are somewhat recessed in the rear, the covers make buckling the seat belts challenging for little kids.

    pnlyee,

    Did you have your rear seat covers installed by the Costa Mesa store?

    sms, Thanks for the pictures, your piping looks very nice, but
    I did not find pictures of that same style on their web site.
    When you come to Carlsbad, maybe we can meet, since I
    am only about 45 miles north, on I-5. I am hoping to get
    over to AZ later, after my "puppy" gets well.

    pnl...,
    I am in Laguna Hills, and would like to see your car.
    This coming Saturday, 7 Feb, we have an EV breakfast
    Gathering in Cerritos, at the Hometown Buffet on South
    Street, just East of the 605, one exit south of the 91.
    We have been meeting for almost 5.5 years, started
    with LEAFs, now have Rav4EVs, Tesla S, and other EVs.
    Informal, friendly, and you are welcome to join us.
    HTB opens at 8 AM, and they make custom omelets, etc.

    Yes, the Costa Mesa installed both front and rear.

    Garygid,

    I am not available this Saturday. If you would like I could post some pictures. It should be noted that our covers have quite a bit of wear due to daily use with wet kids from the swim team.

    Yes both my wife and I think the covers make the seats more comfortable. Have done multiple roads trips and they are very comfortable.

    They are the full piping version. Plus I got the Dolphin logo on the front seats for fun.
