I'm not sure oem should be the gold standard. My 68 bug's (albeit vinyl) seats held up better than my 2006 Toyota's. I have two other cars with leather seats older than the LC which also do not require replacement any time soon. Many factors of course. If Ridies last five years and oem aren't even sold anymore (right?), it's a small price to pay (again) for medium term
gratification. Sure makes a huge difference in my enjoyment of the rig now. New foam may be a big part of that though.
I agree OEM is more like the bronze standard, but it is THE most common standard for longevity thusfar.

My Lseat covers came in - pretty quick after ordering - and the first thing my wife said when looking at them is "those look cheap, look at that texture!". Oh well!
I like them, they look fine, don't mind the pebbly texture, i'm sitting on them fully clothed after all.. they'll be a big upgrade to the worn out 20yr OEM seats which, I agree, don't have a real premium look to them now (or ever?).

Actually I think the first thing she said was - "I don't remember agreeing that it was time to replace the seat covers!" but... her memory must be fading.

Went with Lseat after reading this thread. I have 2 LC’s in need of leather — I didn’t get a discount trying to order two sets, so went with one (fronts) . Might go Ridies on my next set. — Kevin.
