ba interior will be cheaper probably, as you can maybe hock your interior for a few quid.
Keep in mind your gonna have to change ur dash or something to make the interior look right though.

I think it would be just as easy to re do the ef seats and then leather them - otherwise as YTMONY said you would have to change the dash too much to suit the ba seats

i think best would be to do some research into what you'd need to do to get the BA seats into an EF.

most likely not a bolt in job and while being cheaper to buy then getting a full retrim, it may cost a bit to get them modifed to fit (and be safe at the same time)

whats the deal with gettin new seat rails made for them to fit a different car? do you have to get the seat enginnered or anything?

wonder if the rear BA seats would fit in an EF... not the leather ones, jsut fabric, they are comfortable.

Yes you do have to get it engineered, but if you do it properly the chances of getting done for it are pretty much non existent.

Thats right not many cops etc re gonna ask u to hop out and rmove your seat so they can inspect the rails...you need custom mounts and sometimes rails made up to take on aftermarket or non-standard EF/EL seats and do to it properly get it engineered...at least then you have on poaper thats its safe and when u crash u dont have to worry about u and the seat being shot thru ya windscreen
