    What does "WTM" stand for? Or do you mean "WTB"? (Want To Buy). This is the "Want to Buy" forum.

    It's actually correct. WTM means that I want to mount the seat covers after I buy them! :p

    Don't the original seats have side airbags in them? Sure I saw that in the manual.

    Are you suggesting that the seat covers would prevent the side air bags from working properly? I'd have to check the manual. I have a 2015 MS - D

    Yes, seats with airbags should not have covers - delays and alters the trajectory of deployment AT BEST. Manual will state you should not do this IF the bags are in the outside edge, which is where they often are.

    Thank you for letting me know. For some reason the textile seats get dirty easily and they are hard to clean!

    Perhaps investigate professional cleaning and some kind of fabric protector (Scotchgard type product) ...

    According to Evannex, their seat covers have a special opening to allow the air bag to deploy.

    Good to know, though I'm hoping the Nappa leather won't need covering any time soon - of course it's Nappa ...
