Is anyone here planning on getting seat covers for their SKY? I was thinking that maybe some black sheepskin covers would keep the black leather seats cooler in the hot sun...and also warmer in the cooler months. Any thoughts on this?

You could tint your windows and get one of those dashboard heat shields to help keep it cooler. Why pay for the premium trim if you're just going to cover it up?

Well...I definitely plan on getting a sunshield for the dash...but the window tinting is out. Not only is it illegal in my area...I simply don't like it. Gives off too much of a "Pimp My Ride" look. Just not my style. I mainly got the premium trim for the audio controls on the steering wheel...otherwise, I would have gotten cloth seats.

I will be driving solo on my commute to work and would like to protect the driver's the interior. I decided against the Tonnuea cover so I figure covering the passenger seat along with the floormats would cover/protect most of the interior. :D

I was thinking along the lines of a beach :cool: towel or maybe a good-'ol-boy :eek: T-shirt with a picture of my favorite beverage on it! :cheers:
I suppose a couple of NASCAR stickers on the seat would help cool her down.

Never found leather seats to get as warm as VINYL!! Now those were bad..!
The leather might be warm at first but they never seemed to get sticky and wet like the vinyl ones of old.
If you keep the leather conditioned and clean -- it should breathe and be OK

The only part of the seat that is made of leather is the center seating "strip" the rest is vinyl. The parts that touch the bare part of you leg when wearing shorts is vinyl and that will BURN !!

See if you can order the premium package w/o the leather seats. Can't see why they'd refuse that. If you're gonna pay, might as well get exactly what you want. :cheers:

Nope...cannot be done...premium trim means leather seats. Besides...my order has been in since 3/27/06...too late to change it.

custom seat covers on ebay sky

The red sky on ebay has "custom seat covers" which look like the factory leather option. it is a red sky and red/black is not an option available with that exterior color.

Try leaving a few layers of skin on the seats...you may change your mind! My vette has black leather seats and I can guarantee that DNA from the back of my legs is permantly stuck to them!

I had planned on getting neoprene seat covers from www.wetokole.com, but just never did. They have covers for the Vue, so maybe they'll come along with some for the Sky before long. You can customize the colors, add graphics, etc. They're alot more than you pay at Wal-Mart, but would look pretty cool.

Thats what I do too. The beach towel is a multi purpose device. It helps keep the seat more comfortable, and can be used to dry off with when you do get to the beach.
The leather does not stay as hot so it only has to be covered when someone is going to sit there
