    I bought these from Costco, by far the cheapest price on them by at least $50-$60. Total was about $190 and took about 7 days total from the day of order to delivery. If you are a Costco member you could save $11. In another thread I was pissed because I couldn't figure out how to install the armrest, but it turns out I'm missing a piece. I blame UPS, the box was beat and partially open so I think it probably fell out on the truck. The covers are easy to install with the seats off, I can't say how easy they'd be while the seats are still in. Fit perfectly, with a couple wrinkles from shipping that should flatten out soon. Very comfortable to sit on, plus they look great. I went with Coverking mainly due to price and color options, they were the only one's I could find for under $250. I almost went with leatherette, which may have looked better but I didn't like how the sample felt, and it wasn't as padded as the neoprene. Only had them for 2 days so can't say how they'll hold up to my dogs. I really like how they have the built in seat pockets. As for the new neoprene smell, after a day with the windows cracked the smell has mostly gone away, not bad at all. I highly recommend them, especially if you are jealous of the guys with Wet Okoles but can't spend $350 on seat covers. These are camera phone pictures, so the colors are a little off, but they are a light grey, just a shade lighter than the grey of the interior. I still need to adjust them a bit, the drivers side isn't pulled down as much as it should be, and you can see the top of the armrest looks a little stupid now, I should hopefully get the missing piece by next friday, it's a neoprene sleeve that will slide over the armrest cover.

    I just installed the same one's for my Dad on his Subaru. The only thing I wasn't that impressed with was the headrest fit. On my TRD neoprene covers the head rest part fit much better. All in all though, the Cover King looks to be a great seat cover for the price. Be sure and spray some scotch guard on them to make clean up easier.:)

    Looks good...I just got them priced out from Costco and it was 169 for the fronts and that was compared to their website which was 312. Huge savings. I might have to get these since WO will likely not have another group buy soon. Looks good.

    love the seat covers. gonna ask a dumb question
    1) are you a member of costco?
    2) is there a costco near you?
    3) did they ship them to your house? I think you mentioned that they did, but I am not sure.
    the reason I am asking is the nearest costco is in atlanta, and if I were to undertake this, well, I am not driving to atlanta to get them. Thanks.

    They will ship and you have to be a member to get the costco price.

    Not a dumb question at all.
    1) I'm not a member, so it was an extra $11 for me. I forget what the % price increase is, whatever $11 to $169 is.

    2-3) No Costco's anywhere near me, just shipped it standard UPS. From the day of ordering to the day it was on my front porch was only 9 days, but that included Veterans day and a Sunday, so 7 business days total. Costco is just a go between, the covers are made specifically for you at the Coverking factory and shipped from there. My missing piece is being made by Coverking and shipped directly to me, I didn't talk to Costco at all.

    That brings me to another thing I forgot to mention. I can't compare with Wet Okole or GT or any other place, but Coverking's customer service is great. They sent me lots of samples when I asked for just a couple, even sent me a few different fabrics I didn't ask for just in case I like those better. And when I called them on the phone to ask about my arm rest cover, they answered me right away, and within 15 minutes I was told that the new piece would be sent to me within 7 days.

    Like OffroadToy said, the only part that doesn't fit perfect are the headrests, Coverking could change the pattern to make them fit a little better. It's not bad, just not as good as the most expensive ones. You really can feel the extra cushioning with these covers, and since they are full neoprene there is a layer of rubber between you and the seat itself, so any liquid spill will either be absorbed by the top layer of fabric or run off the seat.

    I'm starting to question my choice of Coverking. They sent me the missing piece of my armrest cover, but it's the same piece I already have. Called customer service, they asked me to email them pictures and I haven't heard back from them yet. So either I'm a dumb A**, the arm rest isn't supposed to have the top covered, or Coverking sent me the wrong piece again.

    I think I am about to make a purchase...It is hard to pass up 269 at costco for front and rear seats. Wet Okole doesn't want to offer the group buy price anymore...so elsewhere I go.

    Yeah, well, like I said, I really like the pieces I got, but this missing arm rest thing is kinda silly. How can they not know what/how it's supposed to be installed? And if I put it on correctly, how can they market this as including everything when it doesn't? Here's what I'm talking about:

    Yeah it does look out of place that they would provide a bottom piece but not the top.

    I will be ordering mine before the sale ends. They will be all black...I was thinking of the two tone colors but think i might get bored later so black goes with everything.

    I'll post pictures when they are installed

    I'm also starting to think I should take back what I said about Coverking's customer service. I called them on the 3rd and sent them pictures for the second time, they said they'd get right back to me. 3 days later and still haven't heard from them.

    That is weird...cause I was able to contact them by Email. Well I am ordering them through Costco...so I know if they start to crap out...Costco will take them back. You said that the fit and finish you like though correct?

    I think you can buy a spray from them. How do you like them man? They are just way cheaper than Wet Okole, so I am about to order them. Just wanted your thoughts since you have a 2nd gen. Thanks

    Yeah, don't get me wrong, except for the missing piece and now the lack of customer service I like them a lot.
