CTi Interior advice.

Post by [email protected] » Thu May 29, 2008 11:12 am

Hi guys and gals,

The seats of my Cti are all torn and stuff, what would be the best thing for me to do. Recover or replace. If I need to replace it where would I find a place to buy, and where in JHB will I find a place to recover. The dash board also needs some work, any advice on that??

id go for the recover, that way you can customize it according to your taste.

Recover and keep it original. Maybe make it semi-leather or full leather.
I know they had options of full "fake" leather, semi-leather and full cloth.
(Mine is full cloth but would like to have made it semi leather).
Replace dash with original.
Why? Nothing lets a car keep value when it gets older than keeping it stock. Maybe put in the white faces and red dials in dash. That would look hot.
