These seat covers are extremely well thought out and quite easy to install. The most difficult part was passing the straps under the seats without interfering with the power seat adjusters, cables, etc.; having two people helps. The wine color coordinates well with the existing interior, and the headrest covers were very simple. The console cover took a little more work as the original leatherette panel between the top and bottom of the console had to be removed to connect the two console cover pieces. There was a problem with the driver's side seat cover, the 60 part of the 60/40 split. There is no slit or other opening for the center seat belt, and the strap & buckle for that side of the seat was difficult to pass under the seat or console as there wasn't an unobstructed path. We had to bunch the seat cover around the base of the center seat belt buckle and position the fastening strap as best we could down the side of the seat; with the console folded down it looks and works alright. These were a gift to my 88 year-old Dad for his Cadillac; he didn't see them until after they were installed, and he is very pleased with the result. He had no idea custom fit covers like these were available and could be so good. He and my mom are also glad that they will no longer have to sit on cold leather in winter or hot leather in summer. Thank You!
