Custom Leather

I saw this custom leather treatment at the smart center San Francisco today. These were original smart leather seats, but a local shop added colored, perforated, leather inserts. The color was slightly purple which was not a good blend with the blue fortwo cabrio, but it looked like a good way to add some color to the black interior which comes with leather seats.

I don't have any details or pricing information.

There is a company called "Katzkin",
They make high quality aftermarket leather seat covers for cars & trucks. Any good upholstery shop would be able to order the seat covers for you & install them. I received an email from them last week saying "ForTwo" covers are available.
You can order ANY color combination you desire........

This is a new leather tratment, the car had black cloth seats, The door panel tratment looks really good if you get a Chance to check it out. The whole package ran around 1500, I'd like to see the red int with some good leather tratment,

The seats looked pretty good, the fit looked factory. The door panels however were atrocious. Good in concept, poor in execution. There was just too much bunching in the compound seem running through the length which just shows bad application, which may or may not be due to the cut.

My local dealer has a 12 Passion with a simply red package. Its has a red tridon, and black body. The interior is black leather with red stitching and the dash is leather as well. Its a beautiful piece. Full load nav etc.

Correction: The "simply red package" is actually the "sharpred special edition".

Regarding leather, you can go aftermarket or wait until smartUSA initiates the Tailor Made program, that way you'll get your leather right from the factory
