    Bone stock for now but parts on their way!
    I got mine this weekend and installed them right away. I still need to try to pull and tighten them up a bit around the front seat belt area. You did a way better job than I did lol

    can you post some pics of your seat covers after install. I'm really tempted to get these but want to see more after install pics and user honest reviews. Thanks.

    Ydlee you did an amazing job on the front seats!
    Does the prestige tag go on the outside by the doors or inside by the armrest?

    Mine look a little loose on the insides by the armrest. I was wondering if Toyota changed the seat a bit when making it a powered seat.

    Did you unbolt the front seats during install? It's easier to tie and make sure everything is tight when running the straps. I even unbolted the side trims on seats to pull the covers. The prestige tags I had on the outside towards the doors.

    They look really good, any issues or things you'd let a potential buyer know now that they have been installed for a little while besides what you have already written

    Ships from the same address/phone for my order. The Facebook seller appears to be their online guy.

    yeah for sure, wasnt trying to cast doubt on the guy on FB.

    I also see you can get the Black with the Red quilted look on FB for a little cheaper than what they have it listed on their site for. so thats cool. very much considering pulling the trigger on these.

    I went with non-quilted and white stitch, should be here today via FedEx if tracking is worth a damn. I'll report back on initial unbox impression but I am not sure how soon I will get them on. I did the Make an offer on FB (via my wifes account as I just I don't use the FB) and knocks just a few bucks off).

    I ordered directly from that website since I don’t have the facebook. Shipped out the next day and got them in about 3 days or so.

    Just a thought here. There are airbags in the seats.... I can’t find anything on their website that mentions them, and how the covers function if the airbags are deployed.
    Clazzio covers are double the price but they address the airbags specifically and have a video showing their covers working with the airbags.
    I’m not sure what happens to an airbag that’s deployed and unable to bust through the seat cover and I wouldn’t want to find out right next to my head.
    Not knocking these, just food for thought.

    This is the RIGHT question to get an answered by the vendor -- emailing as my covers are inbound today. I made an assumption as all 2016+ have the SRS seat side airbags.

    So it seems this is really a liability issue (of course it is) to state they are 100% airbag compatible. That said I just received my order and it certainly appears that the side of the seat threading looks at least like something that would pull apart with the proper force. Curiously, I looked around at what Clazzio states online and there FAQ states:
    When I install Clazzio, what will happen to the side impact airbag?
    We use thread designed for the side impact airbag. It has been proven that Clazzio does not have any effect on the deployment of the side impact airbag.

    They also embed this vid: https://www.clazzio.com/vids/clazzioairbags.mp4

    Watching this I can see how the airbag deploys and fights to find any seam it can rip out of! Looking at the new covers that I just opened up I can see the same threaded area "as the Clazzio design" that I cannot imagine would hold back the force airbag any differently. I am certainly not certifying these for anyone by myself but I also have OVTune and flash my ECU all the time and they state they are not liable for any issues either.

    UPDATE: I did call the vendor and they did state there design is intended to mirror Clazzios but they were not providing any written certification of airbag compatibility. They added that the professional upholsterers they use say there is no difference in how these two competing covers are assembled.
