I just put on some new seat covers. I find with all the covers I have had that the bottom section always look baggy and don't fit properly, I have even attatched more elastic to try and keep the bottom tight. Has anyone found some better fitting covers that aren't too expensive, these cost me $38

These are pretty nice but you can def tell that you paid that much money for them. Is that over leather or cloth? the only ones i have seen were on ebay and i dont know about them fitting properly and not being baggy.

Those look not bad and are a good price for two tone cloth. Most cheapies are made of that faux leather plastic crap which stretch and tear easily. Hard to get most low cost seat covers to cover bucket seats that have the extra side to side sliding support padding from looking baggy.

Where did you purchase those? Does it have matching rear seat covers?

I bought them at a Auto shop marked down from $50, here in Australia. They look better than what the photo looks especially the colour,the red matches the colour of my Koup. The back part fits nice a tight but I might have to get some thicker elastic and sew onto the sides to hold the cover a bit tighter. The covers are fitted over cloth seats. No didn't come with back seat covers, they are a mesh type of material on the sides and a suede material on the middle inserts

Do you have a manufacturer name?

Make sure they will not interfere with the side airbags if you car is equipped. If you have side airbags then the seat covers need to be compatible.
Good catch. I forgot about them since my last car didn't have them. Making slits in the covers along the sides where the air bag tag is on the seats should allow for deployment. Thinking maybe cutting a 1 to 1.5 foot incision should suffice.

I am all for protecting the seats. They look good for the money and after using them they will start to take the shape of the seat and look better. You can even throw them in the washer and dryer to shrink them up a little bit and make a better fit. I would not worry about how they look, they are seat covers so they are serving their purpose well.

True they are mainly there to prorect the seats, i will try your tip and wash and dry them. I had a little mishap I scratched my door trim near elbow rest, so I made up a little badge using carbon fibre and red tubing :(
