    seat cover that does not block the airbag??

    Hi Guys
    Recently got my first Audi.. an A3 Sportback Sport TDI 170
    I am in love with the car already after just one week.. lol
    However, my job sometimes means I get grease and oil on my clothes, instead of messing about changing to drive home, I was wondering if you can get seat covers than won't prevent the side airbag from doing its stuff in the event of an accident.
    Any help is appriciated.

    If you really want to put a seat cover on instead of changing clothes and driving home then get a seat cover on the seat, mark where the airbag is and then cut out a hole where you marked. Job done.

    Plenty on Ebay - I have some on my A3 - the side panel of the seat covers are a flap, with velcro to hold it in place.

    i would just save the hassel and change at work.

    whats stopping dirt/ grease going on to the seat belt..? out at the weekend with decent clothes on, get out the car with a seat belt mark from the dirt.

    just my thoughts.
