. I got my Katzkin done at my dealer but they didn't even ask about heated seats so I had to do it myself.
It gets REALLY cold in Rochester, so I decided to install these over Thanksgiving break. It involved taking the leather seat covers off, but it wasn't too bad. Only took me a day or two to do everything and make it look as close to OEM as possible.
i guess you could kind of say its both a seat cover and re-upholstered. but it does definitely replace the cloth; i.e. when you pull back the leather seat cover, there is no cloth underneath- just foam and the metal frame of the seat itself.
in that sense, the katzkin leathers are in fact seat covers, but they do have piping and zippers and are secured by hog rings and elastic straps underneath the seat.
You had leather seats installed at the dealership? I'm from Rochester too, and that option was never available to me...not that I actually wanted them, but that's pretty interesting that they were offering them if you did.
