    Hi All,

    So I messed up and got the moonstone seats in my prime. Due to the work I do with the car, this was a poor choice on my part. If your interested in swapping your black with my moonstone, let me know. :)

    Since, that's not happening any time soon, I guess I should look for seat covers. As of now, Feb 2017, no one is making reasonable seat covers for the Prime. Anyone find some ? A second alternative is if there is a seat that is similar to the Prius Prime...Maybe the Rav 4 ??

    Any help is more than welcomed.

    Vern

    I thought weather tech was advertising some now. From the pic they did not look like much. I saw that problem with moonstone as well. Went with black. Wish they had a gray option.

    and what about the Traction battery ventilation holes in the back? will the seat cover block them?

    I think it would look groovy on your new car, Huskers. It will evoke spring even in the cold Nebraskan winter.

    "Groovy" is the time frame they go with. Marsha, Marsha, Marsha.

    Are these seat covers made to accept the air bags that may deploy in an accident?

    I pulled the trigger and installed leather seat upholstery in my Prime Plus. Went with the leather with perforations in the seat and back. Looks very stock. Think it does a good job of blending the color to the original "moonstone". As mentioned, these are not covers, these are replacement and will require knowledge of taking apart a seat. The seats will need to be removed to accomplish the installation.

    Unrelated, but I also tinted the windows. 20% on all windows except the windshield. Yes Yes illegal, but looks very nice. Wanted to keep a consistent tint along the length of the car. IMG_20170314_121027[1].jpg

    Use my car for work. It has my ladder, my tool bin, my crawl gear and helmet. In the front is my handy wipes, my BNI name tag, and my phone charger. Still looking for a place to mount the inverter to charge my tool's batteries. You would think the Prius would have one built in..o_O

    So what is wrong with dog hair seat covers? My wife and her doggies don't mind.
