Would anyone know if its a possibility. I love the seats in the BA/BF xr's, alot more comfy than me monts bucket seats. They would probley look a bit odd though. I think in leather would suit better.

Im sure it would be possible with enough $$ The rails would be different for a start, and i doubt that EF/EL rails would bolt up easily. If your handy with metal im sure you could fabricate some brackets to make them fit EF/EL rails fairly easy. But would look very out of place as you mentioned lol

nah mate, dont! the seating position in BA's are higher than in E series vehicles, my bro had 'em in his XH XR, took them out after a month, put the old ones in.... Have you thought about gettin the material? or do you like the whole arrangement??

Why not get some EL XR seats?
They are sportier, hug you more and bolt straight in
also seating height will stay the same
I think that would be the better option :idea:
