    Rip in seat

    I've had a small on the bottom of my drivers seat for a while now and it's slowly getting bigger.
    I don't want it to continue to grow. Does anyone have any tips on what to do? I don't think glueing it down will do anything. Should I cut the edges to keep it from snagging?

    I'm pretty sure all MSPs have that, my 03.5 does. I put gorilla tape on it when I first got mine and had a seat cover covering the bottom to protect it but a few months ago I pulled the cover off and replaced the tape with some regular duct tape and it has held up fine. The split hasn't gotten any bigger in the two years i've had the car.

    Yeah, that true.
    Not worth it though IMO.
