    I've seen mention of the Wet Okole seat covers (great quality and pretty expensive), the GT Seat Covers, and the Exact Fit Seat Covers (Ebay - $59 for front and back, definitely the cheapest - and at their Ebay store actually says they are for Prius's with side airbags in the seat), but I don't find any comments about Coverking Seat Covers ( http://www.coverkingcovers.com/ ).

    Does anyone have any experience with Coverking? They have the 2 front seats, with airbag consideration, in both Cordura and Brushed Cotton for $120 (and other materials, including the neoprene, up to $200).

    Thanks,

    P.S. My 2006 came with a tiny, subtle smudge on the shotgun seat fabric. What's the best for cleaning? Anything other than a clean cloth and water?

    We bought the black/grey, neoprene CoverKing covers (front and rear) for our silver 06 Prius and they look very snappy. Costco had them for about $330 + tax for both sets. We've only had them for a month or so but they appear to be good quality. I had to yank and stretch a fair amount to get them on but they took the abuse just fine. The installation was fairly easy but you have to expect some challenge if you want them to fit snug. A couple of the cutout locations were a little off but that may be due to my installation inexperience and it's so slight I can live with it. They have a great feel when sat on and overall, I'm very happy with them so far. I'll add pics to this post at my earliest opportunity.

    Anyone else have these? It's a substantial savings over wet okole, and the unbeatable Costco guarantee really sweetens the deal.

    The animal print seat covers are AMAZING! Never in my life would I put them in my car, but wow what a look.

    I bought a front set of the neoprene coverking covers so my dog (he has permanent shotgun) can get traction and to protect the leather. I've gotten them for my wife's highlander and the 2 previous cars I've owned. I had one tear in a seat that coverking took care of with no problem even though it was no fault of the product.

    Can't help you with Cover King, but I do have a set of Exact Fit covers for the front seats - included covers for the headrests and the center console. I was surprised at the quality and fit, given the cost. Good color match, too (tan). They're washable, but I haven't attempted that yet.

    Do they interfere with the airbags?

    richapple,

    Bought coverking seat covers last year for my 2007.

    Very good buy, they fit great, have slots/flaps for the side front seat airbags, and pretty easy to put on. Though, hooking the straps under the seats does require some unusual positions.
    Worth the money and they are holding up very well.:)

    If you are referring to the Exact Fit covers, they are slotted to allow for the airbag.
