Appear to be Mr2 Mark 1. Unsure of the sourcing but they have the identical design in both seat and back.

No, those are stock seats in the SW20 (Mark 2). If you're in the US you can get new leather or Alcantera (or combo of both) at Leatherseats.com. There have been group buys from time to time but it's been many years since there's been one.

Maybe I'm reading too deep or misunderstanding the question? These are stock Mark II seats. Leatherseats.com and katzkin.com offer color matched tailor made covers for these seats to return them to better than new condition.

Ok thanks guys, I didn't realize they were simply recovered stock seats, that's great news as my stock seats really just need recovered and some new foam added.

Add your name to the list! https://www.mr2oc.com/6-mkii-90-99-na...group-buy.html

I think I'll shoot an email to LeatherSeats.com and see if we can get something going.

Were there two styles of factory leather? I've seen the perforated seats with large center panels and these with the multiple narrow panels.

There were several styles of factory seats for different markets. I believe most factory US leather had perforated and the JDM market got a "suede" (Ultrasuede/Alcantara) option (US may have gotten it as well but I can't remember). I've even seen some factory leather seats with red double stitching come through RPM Garage.

Sorry, I meant here in the U.S. I've seen the perforated and non-perforated like pictured above here. I remember someone's thread where his grandparents got his seats reupholstered at Toyota and they were the non-perforated covers.

OP: Those seat covers in the picture are from Leatherseats.com (Cream color based on the sample I've recieved from leatherseats.com) - As confirmed by the owner of the car. The owner also had redline's center console installed so they used his photo on their website
