I dont want to do cloth seats after paying this much. I am not a big fan of the suede. Is there any way to get complete leather like in the hell cat?

Interesting. Never heard of them. Went to their site. It says seat covers. So how does this work? Do they just slip it over whatever seats you have or do they remove the existing material? Does this lower the value of the car or void the warrenty? Thanks.

They replace the existing covers, very good quality.

I had them in my G8 and Silverado.

Most dealers will get them and do the install before you get the car. Downside for me is no vented seats like the factory leather seat cars.

Yes if you get the perforations in the seats and backs which Katzkin does offer, just have yet to see it on a dealer installation. Plus you still have the issue of no seat fans on a cloth seat car.

Just got a quote today for Katzkins. Too rich for my blood right now, but at least now I know how much they are. Talked to the Dodge dealer, they partner with Katzkin. They sent me to the upholstery shop that installs them for Dodge. The owner told me that Katzkins are cheaper than what he could make from scratch in house. He said he installs them all the time. He showed me some. Wow. They are super sharp, great quality, nice and tight. He quoted me about 1100 complete for redoing the front seats in Katzkin.

Katzkin does offer both heated and cooled installs. They put the switches right below the radio. My brother had the whole system installed in his '13 R/t when I had mine done. I didn't get the heat/cooled version myself. Unfortunately for him, both of us got crazy and traded our cars for Scat Packs a couple of months after getting the Katzkins so he never really got any use from it.
However, they do sell complete systems.

Should be able to get it done for $850-$1000 for the whole interior (front and back seats). Most dealerships will include this at no cost as a bonus to make a deal. That's really very cheap considering you're reupholstering your whole interior.

But on a new car included in the deal, will be more after the fact.

That is what mine did!!! You just explained it to me. I got it and have no sign of it on the bill. It was like an extra.
Truly I am Blessed!
