While I think the BA seats look good, to me there are numerous draw backs. All our utes at work are BA I & II's plus 1 FG, the BA's seats wear out as much as any of the older Falcons. Nearly all the BA back parts have rubbed through the material on the Right seat outer as they have since EA days and they are SO darn expensive to buy NEW parts to repair them. The bottom spring frame costs $275.00, the BASIC seat track and motor costs $930.00 for the drivers side and the silly side black trim breaks so easy, they cost $40.00.

I don't mean to be a downer but sheesh, so darn dear and so much trouble to go to to fit... I will stick with my standard AU seats. :D


Its only dear if your seats need repairing papa. Personally I have only had 4 falcons over the last 10 years, all e series. I have never had a problem with the seats wearing or braking. You are describing Ute seats here right? A lot of utes are used as tradesman's cars and dont necessarily get looked after like a sedan would.

But I know if I did need to repair my seats I would be buying the parts or even new second hand seats off ebay or the wreckers.

Yes, that is true but it was just something I was thinking is all. :)

Like I said, I wouldn't want to deter anyone from getting them just a thought was all. :D

Hey papa, its all good. But I did want to ask you do you have the computer program that has all the exploded diagrams and part numbers from ford cars?

You always seem to have part numbers handy along with prices :lol:
