Seat Upolstery

I am new to the Acura community as recently purchasing a 2012 TSX with 98K miles. I have been reading throughout the board and about what to look for in a TSX and thank you for all the posts. The exterior and interior is in excellent condition with the exception of the drivers seat torn. I am interested if anyone has had their seats reupholstered and ordered the kits online. If so, from who? I do not want to add a seat cover kit as I want a clean finish. I would like to do the two front seats to allow each to match. I noticed many posts on TLs but could not find anything related to the TSX.

Interesting that my 2012 had tears on both pass and driver seats in the same spot as your pictures
they were small tears

never could figure out how it happened

my dealer replaced them at 38k miles under warranty. They match perfectly and have had no issues since. I am at 119k miles now

These three providers make skins for the TL, I haven't checked to see if they do for the TSX, but it is a pretty good bet one of them will.

I made a post about this over a year ago. My special edition tore in the exact spot. Acura used crap material. I called local places to fix it, everyone said they could but it would not be a 1:1 match, specifically the Ruby red stitching.

If i remember correctly it would be about $300 to fix or in my case about $550 for a new seat cover. I bought some vinyl glue and did the best I could. Looks like crap but it's not worth that kind of cash imo. It did hurt pretty bad when I first saw it, ruined my day.
