Wow, Could you add a shot of the back seat? How are the door inserts attached?

Looks great. Do you know if the dealer used a local company or is it one of the national leather installers?

Leather is from Katzkin. It is installed by a local installer that is associated with the dealer. Everything is handled by the dealer. I don't know much about the detail. I got a lot of compliments regarding the color match.

I don't want to be contrary, but for a little bit more of than the 2 grand you spent on the seats you could have upgraded to a touring and gotten leather plus other upgrades

Michael's Subaru is doing that? I've seen other local Subaru dealers (Carter) doing off roadish mods to some new Foresters.


Just an FYI - Michaels and other local dealers are using a certified installer in Renton, who charges much less if you go through them directly.

That's the part I didn't understand personally.
You get the Leather- though not custom color.

In my area I was quoted $1500 installed for custom. The Katzkin kit in our Legacy has been great. Only recently found a tear in it after 8 years.

@OriginalTwoTone Yeah, was thinking the same thing but my wife’s 18 Forester Premium (with EyeSight) was a dealer loaner car that was so well priced that we will still be coming out ahead when we spend the money to do the Katzkin.

Although, in all honesty - I would like Dual Climate in her car...my 18 Legacy has it and it is very nice.

Premium is a different story, there's a $4100 difference there. Also if you go with the stock Katzkin- around here it's only $1100 installed.
