Cool

According to the Owners Manual ..........

"Volvo recommends the use only of car
seat covers approved by Volvo. Other
seat covers may impede the operation
of the side airbags."

I notice Volvo have inserted the word 'may' in their warning.
Volvo seats are no different to any other, all makers fit seat air bags these days, you just need to buy suitable covers-which split when the air bags inflates.

I haven't fitted any covers in my V40, but in previous cars have found finding suitable covers for sports seats difficult due to the high bolsters.

I use an old t shirt over seats in the summer time to stop them getting sweaty and covered in suntan lotion and a towel to sit on! It's not pretty but does the job.

Most seat covers sold in multistores ( eg praktiker) just won't do because of the high bolsters and bucketish seats.
A friend has suggested a guy (polygono area) who makes customized seat covers on the spot. I will check him out and keep you posted.
I won't settle for a sloppy solution.

Oh, and don't let anyone with suntan lotion get near your v40...

Definitely, i think you are talking about this one:

I am going to talk with them on the phone this Monday morning. I think we can get away with good covers for all seats, for about 150 euros. I will let you know what they tell me...
