Any new cloth seat pictures?

I've seen one set of cloth seat pictures on here and they look ugly and fragile.
The concensus was that the seats pictured weren't the production seat. any new pics around yet?
Why can't the cloth seat be a nice duable plain heavy weave instead of fluffy too light material that doesn't stand up?
Something like the cloth in 69 houndstooth upholstery, but in solid black would be a welcome choice, and why can't the side pieces be a black vinyl instead of cloth?. makes for a more durable interior. The cloth's chosen for the 3rd and 4th gens are too soft and don't stand up well.

200,000 miles and the term "IVER" come to mind when thinking about the cloth seats we've seen.... Hang in there. It'll be good stuff if other GM vehicles are any judge.

GM's going for a manly, rustic look with their cloth seats. Frankly, I'm all for it.

Judging from the IVER cars, I think its going to look like the leather seats except its going to be cloth. Since I am noob at these things, whats the difference between leatherette and leather ?

I'm going to be ordering this car seat cover for my 2010 and also use some saran wrap as my steering wheel cover..



Or I might just try and get these in the Camaro..They look comfortable...


AS I was searching for ugly car seats on google I came across these two pictures.. They reminded me of headpunter for some reason now that he has a little baby kung-fu master avatar, this will prepare him for fighting some monsters down the road if they stay in the crib

If the quality of the seats are anything like the cloth seats I have gotten in my last couple GM cars that had cloth you won't be dissapointed. they are pretty good looking and are pretty durable. I won't worry...

I'm sure glad you found these online somewhere because I looked and seen you were in Miami and thought what the heck is this guy doing driving on my side of the road. LOL

If the cloth seats in my cheap '05 Aveo LT Sedan can be as durable as they are, I'm sure the Camaro's will be even more so.

3.5 years and the seats in the Aveo still look brand new... And they are a pretty heavy/thick material. The cloth in my '02 Camaro wasn't even as good as in the Aveo.

EDIT: Why does almost every reply I make (in the last week) get doubled?? I have to delete one of them almost every time I respond to something. And those stuffed animal things pictured above are, I believe, called Ugly Dolls. There's an entire collection of them if I remember correctly. I have a friend that has a few.

The Hulk could rip one on that seat and no one would know any different.

Don't let him kid you, he's...welll...you know...a post whore.

I was very impressed with the cloth in the IVER, hoping it makes it to production.
Don't want leather.

Leather is the usually the fine grain material that adorns only the actual seating areas of the seats. Leatherette is the "crappy" slightly better than vinyl substitute that the manufacturers all use in combination to the real leather seating areas to complete the interior seats in order to keep the costs down. My 2000 Alero has cloth seats and to this date have NEVER needed any repairs or alterations and still look factory new! My 2005 Buick Terazza on the other hand has the leatherette / cloth combo seats and as of todays date, the drivers seat has been repaired 5 times ( leatherette parts only ) with no repairs needed to the cloth inserts. If given the choice, I will always pick cloth over leatherette any day hands down, however, with more vehicles offering leather / leatherette seats as standard options, I just don't see the point in paying an additional $750 - $1,000 on average just to get leather in the seating areas knowing full well that the other 90% of the seats are a cheap vinyl grade material. Want a better idea of the quality of leatherette! ... go to the used car department of your local dealership and compare a couple of lets say 5 - 7 year old vehicles... 1 with cloth and 1 with leather / leatherette and compare the difference. I'm willing to bet that the cloth will look almost perfect and the leather / leatherette will show cracking, rippling and even the occasional rips too! Dare to compare! In the picture attached ( 2009 Impala ) the area inside the red boxes are actual leather, everything else on the seat is leatherette. Hey, its your money.

When it double posts on me, there is no "time out" for 15 seconds like I've seen on other sites and all. It just immediately puts up a double, identical post.

So is this how much leather is going to be in the Camaro seats?

It's probably a bug in the javascript forum code. And since you're a moderator here, you're not subject to the 15second rule.

Yep. Fbod made a post somewhere that states that leather will only be on the sitting surfaces.
