Was looking for a nice seat of seat covers for my 01 and so far I have come up with a set of these so far...........
http://www.ebay.com/itm/MAZDA-MIATA-2001-2005-BLACK-BEIGE-VINYL-CUSTOM-MADE-FIT-FRONT-SEAT-COVERS/262813899892
These are about the right price range for me, was wondering if anybody has had past experience with this brand IGGEE or if maybe someone might know of some others that might be better for the price.
I did message someone on the MX-5 forum with a set ( his Miata is identical to mine except for the automatic trans and his came off the line 10 days after mine) He said that the seat covers were installed when he bought his, once I told him how much they were he felt they were worth the price for the quality, just was looking for a few more opinions on the subject

I've never had them, but most of us who plan on keeping our Miata's go with Katzkin Leather (https://katzkin.com/interiors). Personally, I got tired of the vinyl deteriorating after less than two years. :shrug:

I only paid about $500 from a local dealer. They were installed by myself an a knowledgeable helper.

I'm sorry to hear that. I just didn't want you to be disappointed a couple of years down the road. But, I have zero experience w/ the particular covers you are looking at. You could check www.miata.net to see what they may have experienced.

Glenn, I used leatherseats.com for my 2000, around $800 for custom made leather, but they do offer vinyl. I changed them myself. Let me know if you need help. I live in Picayune, MS but have been known to travel. :D

No one has saddle brown. It makes me sad.
