Seat cover for multi-contour seats

Does anybody know of a good seat cover for the front seats, that will fit the E70 multi-contour (comfort) seats? I am looking for something that's easy to throw over the seat when ever needed.

So far, I've found the following, anybody have experience with these? http://www.amazon.com/AutoSport-Sher...ata/B006B3E3N0

Wow- do I ever need to find some seat covers for the multi-countours as well! I'm about to pick up my new E70 next week and my 6-month old German Shorthair (he's almost 50 lbs) will destroy my leather, I'm certain of it! I'll be searching for some seat covers as well and will share with the group what I find.

Thanks,

John

I have the sherpa plex covers. They are awesome, I use them when I go to the beach. The BMW seats are a bit tall, the covers will not cover the whole seat if you slip them over the head rest, so I tucked it under the head rest and they were fine. Best thing, when you get home, just throw them in the wash and they are like new. I've had them for about 4 years, still like new.

I looked at those earlier, but they don't fit the comfort seats, at least according to the web site. Otherwise would have been an obvious choice. I wonder if they can somehow be fitted onto comfort seats?

Sherpa Plex Recommended for F10 multi-contour seats as well?

I'm not sure if multi-contour seats are standard for all models or if there are variants of multi-contour seats, but I was wondering, would you recommend Sherpa Plex for the multi-contour seats in the F10 (2013 535)? Also, I looked at a few websites but I didn't see if there were other colors to choose from or if it was just a standard gray. Thanks for your help.

Really does not matter what brand or type of seat, these covers are universal. I bought them many years ago for a Subaru Outback. I no longer have my X5, but these covers work in both my Volvos just as well. They don't hug or conform to the seat, more like a throw. You may have to fiddle with placement over or around the headrest, depending on seat back height. But for temporary use (beach, taking fido to the vet, wet clothes) they are awesome. I believe they also make a larger one to use on the back seat. And being able to toss them in the washer when you are done is the best. Mine have been washed too many times to count, look like new.

Sorry to revive an old thread, but does anyone know why these will not fit the comfort seats?

They look very basic and are like a vest. So, the back rest part should fit fine right? Only problem might be if one extends the thigh support? The fabric is obviously a fixed length on the seat bottom? I wonder if they would work if you didn't extend the thigh support?
