Default 745 seat covers

Does anyone make decent fitting seat covers for 740 series cars? My stock covers are shot and would like to put something over them

I don't see how the price paid for a car determines the amount it's worth spending on making it nice. A car isn't an investment, I generally figure on dumping about 2x the purchase price into repairs and upgrades, and the cheaper the car, the more is typically spent fixing it up.

IPD used to sell very nice custom-fit seat covers for the 200/700 series. They no longer list them but it wouldn't hurt to contact them, maybe they have some old stock laying around.

I bought a genuine sheepskin seat cover for my 98' V70R, it's a universal fit but works well on the taller Volvo seats. Worst part was removing the head rest since the little release tabs were stuck.
