any suggestions

on the cheapest site to get sheepskin covers for my SD. i saw someones post on how they used swimming pool noodles to keep the seats firm. The toys r us near the house is closing so i went and picked up the last 2 noodles for 40 cents each (70% off ) squeezed them between the springs and what a difference!

Now i have cheap $20 seat covers from target but they are getting dirty and wrinkle up when i sit. they are a cheap knock off of velour and im getting tired of them. I always liked the sheepskin but im having a hard time finding them at a good price. Ive seen them at costco for $40/pair but then id have to cut them to fit over the arm rest. And id like to cover the arm rest as well with sheep skin.

i liked them, one of the SD's we went to test drive had them and they were nice and comfy, but that SD was garbage. Maybe should have offered him $50 for the covers. damn!

My wrecked car came with sheepskin seat covers. They're really good quality, too. No freezing seats in the winter or burning in the summer.

exactly why i want them. This morning had to go by walgreens to get some cough medicine and i drove there with 2 sweaters and warmed up the car with the heater on and those damn leather seats were freezing! werent helping my condition. I have the cheap seat covers in the washer so i have to sit on the cold leather until they are dried

So anyone know of any good sites that sell them at a resonable price. Id also like the cover for the arm rest with sheep skin. The arm rest is sticky and cracking.
