Whole new seat

I wouldnt mind getting in on a group buy for driver and passenger seats. This is the only thing about the Armada that I dont like. I rode in a friends yukon and those leather seats are nice. They are big, countoured and have many adjustments. Any one interested in this??????

I have some samples from them and they're awesome. I'm going to get the leather with suede inserts.
I read that thread and I called Leatherseats.com and requested a swatch catalog. Well I sent emails back and forth with the Leatherseats.com for a two weeks asking when I would receive my catalog and telling him that I was ready to buy and the sales guy lied and told me it had been shipped a week earlier. He then proceeded to tell me that if I wanted to pay $15 bucks he could send me one next day, well when I finally got it, and it was post marked the day after I talked with him. It came in a gold envelope and only had three oddly cut pieces of leather with envelope labels stuck to the back with the name of the colors written with a ballpoint pen. The three colors were shades of gray which when I spoke to him the first time he asked me what color my interior was not what color I wanted. So since I was not feeling very comfortable about doing business with them, I requested a swatch catalog from Autoleathers.com on a Friday, it arrived that Tuesday. It consisted of one catalog with all the different colors of leathers, another with the specialty leathers such as exotic skin patterns and suede as well as the custom embroidery options and equipment options like heat, message, and cooling, a catalog explaining the different styles of seats for example monochrome, two-tone, etc., and an ordering guide with worksheet. Their web site was awesome, they sell Katzskin leather, which is, if I’m not mistaken, the #1 auto leathers company, and they had authorized installers an hour from my home. The only problem was that the Armada pattern had not been added to the website. So I called them Wednesday afternoon and the sales rep. informed me that my seats would ship the following Monday 3 business days later. Well they shipped Monday, I received a UPS tracking number by Tuesday, and they were scheduled for arrival on the following Monday. So I made an appointment for that Wednesday, UPS had a one-day delay so they arrived Tuesday; I dropped my car off Wednesday morning and picked it up Friday afternoon. So we are talking 21 days from catalog request to sitting on them, you can’t beat that, and they look awesome. The boys at the Nissan dealership were drooling again. I got two-tone seats for all three rows and door trim $899, some embroidery in the front upper sections $50, $35 for shipping, and $599 to install which is set by Autoleathers.com, for a grand total of $1583.00. The Best part about it was that they didn't even charge my card until two days after I had my seats, the $599 for installation is paid separately to the installers, but they do sell a self-installation kit for $100 on their website. I have pics on the camera, but I left it in the car, will post tomorrow night.

Are you talking about different seat coverings or different seats completely???? Either way it sounds nice, pls post those pics when you get a chance. I was hoping to switch out the 2 front seats completely......

Here are a few more views of my leather. I also went with the darker floormats this time and added the wood trim to the Navi.

Good lookin' leather

That leather looks very nice, much better than stock. Beast, do you know if the place you went through sells different seats completely??? The coverings wouldnt be enough for me, the stock seats dont have enough cushon or support for my big butt, I'm looking for different seats altogether. Thx for the pics!!!

Not for sure but check out their site. They sell heaters, massagers, and air conditioners so who knows.

Per their website F.A.Q.

Q: Do you sell replacement seats?
A: No. We offer replacement leather upholstery for your existing factory seating. Each interior is designed and handcrafted specifically for your vehicle, ensuring you’ll get an original equipment fit.

Thx

Thx for the info Beast.........

Hey, I went to the SF Auto show last night and sat in the QX and it seems like those seats are much better than the mada's (more cushion, support, etc). Was I suffering from sitting in too many luxury vehicles or what??? This should be a simple swap at a Infiniti dealer. Anyone know if this is possible??? Cost????? Next time I'm near an Infiniti dealer I'm going to check it out.......
