The Si's have a cloth/material seat. Mine is starting to knap up. I drive it once or twice a week. Took in on a couple of 600 mile road trips in Aug/Sept, only have 4700 miles on in since June 20th. And the seats, drivers and passanger, are knapping up,.. like an old sweater. Any suggestions out there? i am 5'8" and 180lbs. if i have to lose more weight to keep my seats nice i am going to be pissed.
:)

Read it up on Honda-tech, This guy restored his yellow ITR seats with that method, and he referred to it as a "J" stroke.

i am not trying to bring the knap back,.. it is knapping up. getting fuzzy, and looking like an old towel.
can you shoot me a link? i am still interested in any way to take care of this?

ANYONE KNOW OF AN 06/07 SI seat cover that ain't a POS?

If you look on eBay, most of the Si's being sold have wear issues on the side bolsters of the seats. You can't miss it. Mine have done it too. It's really disappointing.

Mine is showing signs of wear already and im at 12,000 miles! our interior fabrics are like mouse fur its so thin that it wears so easily id hate to see what it would look like in 2-5 years from now probably ripped up with foam coming out and **** such disappointing quality from Honda...and the door panel arm rests too are wearing/fading fast and quickly.
