Looks great but personally, I prefer the AU seats. Every time I jump into my VCT XR and go for a run, I don't want to get out.

They look great mate. Check out on ebay for some plexis red material so you can do your door trims as well.

They are bolstered a hell of a lot more makes them hug around better than the au ones the base is sprung houw ever the au's are not so it feels so much better with lowered suspension.
