    The leather interior that Honda is offering; is this just seat poshish; or they do doors as well? Something like
    New stuff 2011 Civic VTi "Viper" - hondahybridinterior

    Fouad Bh, while you are planning to reduce cabin noise and improving it for sound; how about revamping it with leather like this?

    Seats should be atleast mixed; leather seats are big no for Pakistan!

    Khurram Bhai, the picture above was a focus of my attention for quite some time but later I dropped the idea of using leatherette interior due to certain reasons. The set of pros and cons is given under:

    PROS
    1. An elevated feeling of premium class, style and comfort. Yes that's very true.
    2. If the stitching is stunning, its very rare to experience wrinkles/creases unlike fabric, over a period of time.
    3. Its smooth to slide in and out of the seat due to the texture. This is a plus.
    4. Long lasting provided material and craftsmanship are excellent. Sadly, even the best job will also show.
    5. Easier to maintain as compared to fabric. This is in the case of dust, dirt and soft stains.
    6. Less susceptible to stains, oily and greasy stuff. Can be wiped off in no time.

    CONS

    1. Cheap look if the craftsmanship is slightly substandard.
    2. Generates enormous heat thereby reducing effectiveness of AC. Its not just the AC but our As$es as well.
    3. Susceptible to sharp edged and pointed objects. Pens, paper clips, knife, cutter, ballpoint pen, toys etc
    4. Once sliced at any point, that portion will keep opening up. This is an inherent flaw with the material.
    5. Requires infrequent but much needed leather treatment to keep it soft. Washing powder is a NO.
    6. If damaged, is difficult to repair without being noticed/seen. A patchwork covering stitching underneath.

    OUTCOME
    Keeping in view the points I just covered above, I thought it would be best to get the OEM Civic Oriel hi-grade fabric and stitch it without any trouble. The local poshish walas are very hardworking but usually the stitching job they complete in one day results into a work that shows signs of hurry and inconsistencies. If that happens, people who look at your seats would say "Nice covers yar, 2500 ke hongay"

    I know a person who can do this. Yes you are right; even knowing that "he can manage it" its tricky and risky

    Anyone with Atlas Honda' "OEM Leather Package"...I am curious to know what they give in that deal?

    If you have the fabric, can you please upload its pictures? Being in "Faisalabad" there are loads of options available in local cloth markets. I tried few shops; but nothing matches to the cloth on doors / centre console.

    To date, I am yet to come across a gentleman who can live upto your expectations and his tall claims. Nobody will ever say "Your requirements and standards are beyond my capabilities". I got my friends' cars redone as far the seat and interior goes from different guys shortlisted over a period of experience, but nobody actually can match the "computerized machine-stitched genuine leather" seats we try to copy from Accords and Camries. I may be asking too much but its a fact.

    Yes; they are offering 55k* NAV package and 50k* Leather package on all Civic versions!

    * Start of April rates; when I booked mine; I couldnt afford any of it back then

    The rates were hilarious; one can get Rockmars (which is technically the same thing as you have proven) for 25k-26k; and I beleive this leather package thing is just seat poshish which one can get done under 10k

    i got genuine OEM lookalike leather interior done on my boss's civic back in 08 from icchra lahore from a guy named khalid. His craftsmanship was awesome. He does high end cars like BMs, mercs,LCs etc only n was sayin civic is the lowest i go coz anything below that aint feasible for the owner nor him as people usually dont pay that much. He charged 28k back then.did the doors, seats n armrest. Now he charges over 30k. He used a dotted sort of leather as that of civic thai version.

    My brother has a 2011 oriel with FF leather seat's. The material is leather, but of low quality, the car smells like leather also. I think it's the synthetic leather material called "leather bond" or something. It's not worth 50000 at all. We can get the exact quality poshish done from open market in about 14-15K..

    You just stole my words. He should indeed have gone for the things that make a difference and matter the most. Allow me to share another difference.

    As you can see the pattern even differs slightly. Atlas version of leather seat doesn't have the stitch joint on the outside of the seats (small oval). Similarly the Atlas seat is more flattened out at the stitching points compared to the other photo in which the seats look more fluffy and full.

    The seat's of the usdm civic are looking 10000 times better, excellent fitting + quality etc.. Also the door panels are looking very ugly on the pakistani civic as compared to the other one...

    ^^^Sardar, I'm really sorry for your brother who paid 50k for these seats. He deserved something like the USDM leather seats at least. I bet I can get the filled up or padded seats and interior door panels with diagonal stitching made just like the ones in first photo but the issue of wrinkles and quality of material will remain.
