Has anyone had there front seat skins replaced . Mine had a problem that the seams were pulled to tight at the factory and are beginning to pull apart on the bottom corners. Just wondering how they look once they are replaced, Will the skins look close to what the factory skins were and will be as tight ?

Just mine that I know of . The dealer said it was a problem that the seams were pulled to tight and caused them to start ripping . Only one more year and the factory skins for 06 won't be available

But the XStar has basically not changed since then either so you could get skins for a 2007-2011 just the same.

I just ordered skins for the 4 rear cushions on my '05 X-star. My front seats seem to be ok.

The skins were cracking at the threads....I think a common problem of those years.

'05 skins only available until late June, so i assume '06 would be done after June of 2012.

I have been looking at new skins for my boat and after looking at the 2011 the seats are shaped differently. I think I'll have to go back to like 09's

If it is in the corner of the gull wing front seats it is a very well known X-Star problem. Are your tears in the same location as this picture?

I have the same problem with my '06 X45. Is there any way to repair this or am I looking at a complete skin replacement. In addition, where is a good place to order the skin?
