I don't expect a perfect seat, but this was stretched within minutes of me sitting on it. A boney bonny bum maybe, but the passenger side does not stretch like this and remains totally intact. I WILL get it fixed.

I guess F30AM's point is that he wants to be the one that stretches them, not someone else. No doubt even a new seat base will look the same after 1000 miles.
And that's my point. Look at the latest picture I've posted. The leather is overstretched beyond its years.
