I saw those on another site a few days ago for around £690. My seats are in good condition, so I can't justify it at the moment, but they do look tempting!

Lol!

"PVC Leather"

So......Vinyl then?!?!

Yuck Nismo, I thought you had a bit more class than that!

If they fit and look as good as they do in the photo, then I think they are a good reasonably priced alternative to having ripped seats. After all, the original seats are also man made material!

As for Nismo and class, I'm not sure that the two can be used in the same sentence. Alpina and class, yes! AMG and class, yes! Nismo and class, no! Nissans are cars for the working class.

depends what type of retrim you want

the nismo covers are around £700

a retrim can cost as much as you want to throw at it.

or you can just buy new seats like BRIDE

Are most "leather" car seats PVC leather? Or does it generally vary with brand?

Either way, they look pretty good in the pics!

All other seats that a Leather are Leather (i.e cow hide)

PVC stands for Poly Vinyl Chloride......so not real moo cow
So in the summer they will be hot a sticky, and have none of the comfort and feel that good dead cow feels like.

How much would Robson charge to retrim an R32 seats front and rear plus door cards? Their work is one of the best I have seen. UK re trim looks shabby from what I have seen.

With respect you need to look at some more companies. Plenty of UK based companies produce excellent results.

Well the ones I see people post on forums not just skyline forums but in general have looked poor and in a bad tastes. May be that is down to the owners who have poor taste in colours and design. I would happily use a UK based company but happy to be proven wrong and see something that matches or beats Robson.

Not bad Cris but still some way off Robson quality.

I wonder how many people would be interested in getting Robson back over to the UK as part of a group buy. There was one done some years back worked out like 1700 each.
