Default Replacing synthetic seat covers with leather

Hello, I just got a 2017 F-Pace premium that came with synthetic seating, which I'm not fond of. Does anyone know a reasonable option for replacing these with leather seating? I live in CA in the Bay Area. Thanks!

Welcome to the forum Radu,

Depends what you consider "reasonable". The first option to look at has to be OE Jaguar replacement covers in leather of which there are several listed in JEPC (Jaguar Electronic Parts Catalogue). The simplest direct replacement for the current covers, this will give you a ballpark to judge alternative quotes from trim shops. Having had Aston Martin, Bentley and Jaguar leather trim done, I can say the badge on the vehicle makes little diference - it is always expensive.

Please follow this link New Member Area - Intro a MUST - Jaguar Forums - Jaguar Enthusiasts Forum to the New Member Area - Intro a MUST forum and post some information about yourself and your vehicle for all members to see. In return you'll get a proper welcome and some useful advice about posting to the forum.

I had both my front two seats in my 2017 recovered with the factory leather covers. The dealer did it for me. Looked great fit perfect. Remember there are air bags in the seats. So you want them to work if you need them

It was done under warranty. So no charge. Took about 3hrs per seat.
